General Announcements for the 4th grade

Notes from last Tuesday's 4th Grade Open House - A-Look-Ahead.pdf

Tuesday, Jan. 27 will be retake photo day and the 8th grade class photo. If for any reason a child does not like his/her photo and they are having them retaken they must bring in their unwanted photos.

Waldron Mercy Academy will celebrate its awesome students on Friday, January 30, during Student Appreciation Day! The theme of the day will be “Everything LEGOS.” The day is a dress down day for your child. Each child is encouraged to wear LEGO colors. (Please do not stress about this, and there is no need to buy something. Your child can wear spiritwear if you do not have a “LEGO-colored” piece of clothing.) Students will enjoy “The LEGO Movie” together. Students will also watch the 8th grade students take on the Faculty/Staff in volleyball at the end of the day as well.

Join WMA parents at the Grog Saturday, January 31, 4 p.m.-6:30 p.m., for the Tigerfest Gift Gathering Party. $20 per person covers drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Please see the Tigerfest website for more information.

Are you receiving packages with bubble wrap?  If so, recycle and save it for us and send it in to Mrs. Guarini for an upcoming project. We will be collecting bubble wrap from now to March, so send it in whenever you have a chance! Also, do you have a connection where we can obtain PVC (1/4" and 1/2", connectors, and PVC primer and cement)?

Do you have access to 1/2" dowels, duct tape, packing tape, wood glue, or wire? We're taking donations of those for the project as well.
