PHONES: Just a reminder that phones should be off and stored away during the school day. The school day begins when you come into Mahoney and ends at 2:45.
There seems to be an increase in the amount of perfume/Axe and cologne people are using. Please know that there are some students and staff who have asthma and allergies and strong fragrances can cause issues.
Please be mindful of how much perfume or cologne/Axe you use either at home or here at school.
Adults will kindly and privately ask you to use less, if you are not aware yourself. Perhaps your friends will let you know, as well?
Today we welcome several new students to Mahoney! Thank you for your smiles, your hellos and your invitations to have a new student join you in class or in the cafeteria.
If you have not gotten a chance to get around the school to check out all of the doors, you should definitely do so! Congratulations to all teams for putting so much effort and thought into representing your countries in the Mahoney Reading Olympics door decorating contest!
Homework Club is offered on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday each week from 3-4. This is a great place to head after school to get some work done in a quiet place with a helpful adult.
Anyone interested in walking or running as a group today(monday) should come to room 221 after school. We will finish up by 3:45. I will have extra pledge sheets for students who did not get one.
Library: The mystery device in the library was an early Personal Digital Assistant or PDA. You might have heard the name Palm Pilot–the Visor PDA was similar to one of those. No one got it exactly right, but two kids came really close. Colin Jamieson and Sam Messana can come up for a small prize. Check back in the library on Monday for your next chance to guess.
Mahoney’s lost and found is located right outside the main office right next to the water fountain. There are a bunch of items both on top of and inside the red Mahoney box, if you’re missing something, check it out!
Students, charge your iPads each evening so they are ready for the day.
Students, have you checked your email lately? Please make sure you know how to access your school email, that you do check it daily--you never know what you might find!
