Last day of school is Thursday, June 14th. It is a half day for all students. If it is the EID and religious observance then it will be an appropriate excused absence. However, we are hearing that the EID will likely be on Friday. Thus, students are expected to attend school. School funding and next year’s calendar is tied to student attendance, so it is important that all students attend on Thursday, June 14th if the EID is on Friday.
On Wednesday, June 13th, we will be hosting an End of Year Carnival. It will be held from 8:30-10:30 pm. Please join us for activities included bounce houses, face painting, bingo, and concessions. Pre-orders for food (meals including Byblos Chicken Shawarma, potato balls, and fatoosh) are available. The cost of a wristband is $3 for all activities. Meal pre-orders are due June 6th to your teacher.
You can find information and order forms for the school carnival next week at the End of Year Carnival with Translation. This order form will allow you to order wristbands for the event and food pre-orders. Please join us next week, we look forward to a great time!
**Updated: Please see the suggested reading list for our students. During the summer, incoming middle school students are expected to read three to five chapter books at their reading level. Upon returning to school in the fall, each student will write a brief summary of each book and have a book talk. The rubric for the summary and the book talk will be given to each student via district email and a hard copy placed along with the end of the year report card.
Last week, McCollough-Unis hosted a First Lego League challenge. The event was a success and we want to recognize everyone who participated and recognize our own team, who won the research award for their water problem/solution and placed in 8th place during the competition.
A few thank yous for our event go out to Ms. Chami and Ms. Harb for coaching our team, the PTA and volunteers for putting on the event, Mr. Bates for being our emcee, and Ms. Simmons for her leadership!
