Movement: Field is open!
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.
The Mahoney Reading Olympics door decorating contest concluded last week. A special thank you to our student council judges who dedicated their time to score each door on the following categories: Overall visual impact, Mahoney Reading Olympics theme (including Olympics and reading), and country representation.
