In the Know with Ms. O:

Wishing each family a wonderful Fall Break. I hope you have time to rest, recharge, and spend time with friends and family. I am personally thankful for all the continued support from the families, staff, and students of Mark West Elementary. Our school community has so much to be thankful for this season. Our students created a school wide tree with leaves adorned with thankful thoughts. See the photo on the last page.

A ‘note’ from Ms. Kaufman:

Please join us for our long-held tradition of singing and playing holiday songs at the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony, presented by the Mark West Area Chamber of Commerce. 4th-, 5th-, and 6th-grade chorus and continuing violin students from Riebli, San Miguel, and Mark West will perform at this event. The Tree Lighting Ceremony will take place on Wednesday, December 6 at 6:00pm in the Mark West Elementary MPR. Students who are performing will receive a flyer with more details next week.
Mrs. Kaufman is currently in the process of creating a Google Classroom for each 4th-6th grade music class to help students keep learning and practicing at home. She will send out invitations to students to join if she already has their email addresses, but she is missing a few! If your child is in a 4th-6th grade music class and they do not get an invitation in the next week or so, please email Mrs. Kaufman and she will send you the link for them to join. They will need to log into their school Gmail account to join. (Note – it is not a requirement to join the Google Classroom, but it may help students remember what they’ve learned in class and to practice at home.) Email Mrs. Kaufman with any questions at kkaufman@mwusd.org. Happy music making!
