HJM New Week of Sept. 30-Oct 4

Here are announcements for the Week of Sept. 30 -Oct 4:

ALL Chocolate Money is due by Friday, October 4, 2019. If you gave permission for your child to sell a box of chocolate, you MUST settle all balances by Friday. Each box is worth $60. This is the biggest fundraiser of the year for HJM.

We need a completed signed Federal Card from EVERY child at HJM. There is a classroom competition in progress. The first homeroom in each grade level to include our EC homerooms, that turns in a completed card for EVERY child will receive a free ice cream.

Progress Reports were sent home last Thursday. If you have concerns with your child's academic progress at HJ, please contact the teacher. You can reach the teacher by calling the school to leave a message OR you can email the teacher directly. Communication concerning your child's success at H.J. MacDonald is a two-way street. As a parent you can follow your child's grades by logging into the parent portal of PowerSchool. Do not wait until progress reports or report cards to communicate. Stay engaged to stay informed!

Picture Day will be Tuesday, October 8. Parents will be provided with proofs to order pictures online.
