From the Principal’s Desk

Dear Mark West Families,
Well, this is my final newsletter as a Mark West Tiger, although,” Once a Tiger, always a Tiger”, has always been my motto. Fourteen years ago, I was welcomed into this wonderful family. I will miss everyone dearly but treasure the memories we have made together. I have been so proud to be a part of this wonderful Mark West Elementary community and have appreciated working with the best children, staff, and families in Sonoma County! I wish you all a happy and safe summer and a fabulous year next year!
Yours in Partnership,
Tracy Lavin-Kendall

Dear Mark West Students,
Here are my wishes for you in the future:
That you always remain kind.
Follow your dreams.
Play hard.
Have fun.
Read!
Learn!
Grow!
Love always,
Ms. Kendall

Summer Reading Log
Students, make sure you keep up your reading over the summer! Ms. Pardo will be sending home a summer Reading Log for you. Prizes will be awarded!
Grand Prize: Every student who reads over the summer will be rewarded with…. Being a Better Reader! Other prizes will be awarded to Summer Readers.
The Sonoma County Library also has a summer reading program. Students may attach a copy of the Library log to our school log so that you don’t need to write the books twice.

Music
In these past few weeks of school, I have been playing my violin at recess for the enjoyment of the students. Students have been singing, dancing, and playing percussion along with me, and we’ve all had a blast sharing our love of music! I have also been rehearsing with 6thgrade musicians for a special musical performance during promotion. We look forward to performing for the 6th-grade families! I look forward to seeing students again in the fall, and I encourage all 4th-8th grade students to consider joining a music class next year! I am looking forward to continuing the TK-2nd general music classes as well as 3rd-grade recorders in the fall. We are also excited to introduce some new music learning opportunities in the fall. Stay tuned in the fall!
Have a wonderful summer, and keep making music!
-Mrs. Kaufman

Yearbook
Hi Mark West Families!
If you did not purchase a yearbook, you can still go to the Yearbook store and have it delivered to your house. There is not time to have it shipped to the school! Please give a huge thank you to Summer Supinger for all of her hard work this year (and last!)
