Write A Check Success!
Thank you Mockingbird families for your generous support during this year’s Write a Check Campaign. We surpassed our $12,000 goal and raised a total of $14,089.
Your giving keeps us on track for our fundraising goals for this school year. This also means that Mrs. Flynn will be slimed during an assembly in front of the whole school! We’ll keep you posted on the date.
Congratulations to Mrs. Taylor’s class for contributing the most to Write a Check. Mrs.Taylor will be given $500 for use this year in the classroom!
Our 1st grade classes were the grade level to have 100% participation in Write a Check. Their class receives extra recess and popsicle party. Way to go!
Mrs. Trimble and Mrs. Buschow’s classes were tied for the 1st class to have all of their blue cards turned in and will have a special treat coming soon!
Lastly, these top 5 earners (there was 1 tie) for Write a Check will get to choose a teacher to throw a pie at during an upcoming assembly. Details to come! Congratulations and many thanks to: Austin Jones (KA), Snigdha Tallapureddy (KA), Ryder Sidebottom (KC), Cadence Ruempolhamer (KC), Zoe Ruempolhamer (2B), and Lekhana Ananta (4B)
Thanks again for all of your support. We truly are Better Together!
New Mockingbird Online Directory
Have you heard we will not be handing out a print version of our school directory this year?
Visit the new Mockingbird PTO Website to access our online directory. Note: A few families have requested that their information remain private and not visible in the directory.
You can also download the Membership Toolkit App for easy access to the school directory. Just search "Membership Toolkit" in the App Store and use your login for access.
We still have a few families that have not added their information. It is easy to set-up!

Message from Front Office About Change of Clothes
Many students have a change of clothes at school in case of accident or spills. Many of these clothes are light summer wear or may have already been outgrown. Please send in a warmer set of clothes to keep in your child's cubby. If you have any clothes, especially pants with expandable waists, that you could donate to the front office in case of accidents or spills, we would appreciate it!
Cold Weather Clothing Reminder
Just a friendly reminder that we continue to go outside to play in the colder weather. Please be sure to send your child to school wearing appropriate clothing for the cool temperatures. Keep in mind that classes go outside throughout the school day. Weather permitting, we will be outside when the wind chill temperature is 32 degrees for a 15 minute recess. Below 32 degrees wind chill warrants indoor recess. Please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather including wearing a winter coat, hat, and mittens when necessary.
