Graduation - Thursday, May 30th 6:00 p.m.
Graduation is Thursday, May 30th from 6:00-6:30 p.m. at Vineville Baptist Church. This is a special time for all of our students and families as well as our last celebration as a community before we all embark on our summer adventures. In addition, we will also be celebrating Ms. Valerie’s years of service to MOM as she transitions into retirement. Students who will be moving into a new classroom in July will “graduate”. These students will be recognized by their teachers with a certificate and a beautiful sunflower. While only the students moving into a new classroom will receive a graduation certificate, ALL the MOM students participate in the ceremony. When the graduating students have been recognized, all the students in their “new” classroom will welcome them with greetings and handshakes. It is truly a wonderful ceremony and we want all the MOM children to come! After the ceremony, you are invited to stay and enjoy food and good company. You can pre-order a sandwich box (catered by Fountain of Juice) or bring your own food. If you would like to pre-order a box, order forms must be submitted to the office by THIS Thursday, May 23rd. Additional order forms are available in the school office. Sandwich boxes will only be available to those who have pre-ordered.
School Pictures are ready to view!
It was a pleasure to take your child's photograph this week. They are all wonderful and made my job very easy. I know you are anxious to see them, here's how. This Monday, you will receive a 4" x 6" photo proof of your child along with an order form attached to the Monday Messenger. This photo is yours to keep with my compliments. But you don't have to wait until Monday. All the photos have been uploaded to the internet and are ready to view. I have included links to each group at the bottom of this email. (You must use the password distributed last week - if you have lost it, please call the MOM office for help.) You must place your order with payment on the attached order form by Friday, April 19th to receive the "Create your own package" discount. This not only gives you up to a 30% discount, but you will also save on the shipping and handling fee. You may mail the order form to the address on the form or return to the school office. I will deliver the photos to school for distribution by Monday, April 29th. On-line ordering will be available after Friday, April 19th, but the "Create your own package" discounts will not and you will also have to pay shipping. IMPORTANT: To ensure you get the correct photo and pose, please include the image number(s) from either the back of the proof photo, or the image number listed at the bottom of each photo on-line. It will look like this MOM-1000 You may order more than one pose, just include all image numbers on your order form. Here are links to the picture galleries.
