FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Dear Families,

As outdoor temperatures become increasingly warmer, dif-
ferent AC zones within the building can fluctuate in tempera-
ture as the units work to achieve cooling. We strongly en-
courage students to dress in layers since classrooms can be
chilly or warm at times. Even with the changes in tempera-
tures, students must still abide by the schools dress code
even as they remove layers. (See back page for dress code
details.)

Mark your calendar, MVMPCS will be having their end of the
year family picnic on June 11th from 4:00-8:00PM. The pic-
nic will be held at the Clover Hill Community Park again this
year. Come enjoy a relaxing time with our school communi-
ty.

Just a reminder, MVMPCS is closed on Monday, May 26th
for the Memorial Day holiday.

Have a long and restful weekend.

ATTENTION 6TH GRADE PARENTS: DONT DELAY!
MAKE THE APPOINTMENT TODAY!

We do not want to exclude your child from school in August!
State vaccination requirements for students entering 7th grade
for school year 2014-2015 have been revised. Your 7th grade
student must have the following:

Single dose of Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis) vaccine.*
Single dose of Meningococcal vaccine (MCV)

*Tdap is not the same as the other Tetanus, Diptheria, and Per-
tussis vaccines called DPT or DTaP. Even if your child has re-
ceived these vaccines in the past they will still need a single
dose of Tdap.

Parents/guardians are responsible for providing proof of Tdap
and MCV vaccination regardless of previous vaccination rec-
ords provided to your childs school.

If you have any questions about the new vaccination require-
ments, please contact your childs health care provider or the
school health room. Make your childs appointment now and
avoid the rush. Bring the vaccination documentation to school
as soon as possible.
WANTED -BOX TOPS OR LABELS FOR EDUCATION

Its time to turn in all box tops or labels for education that you
have been collecting at home. Please send them to school to be
counted, batched, and mailed. Items should be enclosed in en-
velopes or zip baggies and sent to classrooms on Fridays (when
you return your Thursday Folder). Each classroom has a class
collection container where items may be placed.

Sorting and batching the items you send is helpful, but not nec-
essary. All collections are batched into groups of 50 and the
envelope or zip baggie is labeled with the item type and count.

Interested in serving as the class collector for a specific class-
room in the 2014-15 school year? Please send email to the
MVMPCS Fundraising Committee Chair - Jen Shemer at fund-
raising@mvmpcs.org.

Thanks for your continued clipping and collecting!
