A message from the principal...

Welcome February!! As we move into this winter month, staying healthy is a goal we all have! Please, if your child has a fever one day, keep them home for twenty four hours once the fever has subsided. We are trying to keep everyone healthy at school and at home. If your child will be out of school due to illness, please contact our office. Our goal is for everyone to be here, healthy and happy!

Kindergarten registration for the fall is right around the corner! We will be having kindergarten registration for all our elementary schools on Monday, March 1st, at 6:30 pm. If you have an incoming kindergarten student or know of neighbors who have incoming kindergarteners, please spread the word about this im-portant informational event. Bring your immunizations records and birth certificate for copying and you will be able to register that evening.

ELPA Testing
This month our English Language Learner (ELL) students are taking a state test called WELPA, which measures their English language development. It is very important that students be in attendance at school during testing days. These are not the kind of tests you can study for, but you can participate in many ways at home that will make a difference for your child. Be sure your child has plenty of sleep and a good break-fast. Encourage your child to do their best and help them be at school on time.

February is Jump for Heart month. Students will be hearing heart healthy facts in their physical education class. Some students may be bringing in pledges to support heart health.

Parents often ask, “What can I do to help with reading?”
Here are some ideas you could use at home:

  • Encourage your child to read “just right” books. Let them see you read every day - e-mails, books, ads, etc.
  • Ask your children questions about what they are reading.
  • Read to them or have them read everyday.
  • Encourage children to read words, letters on labels, packages, signs, lists and every-day items.

Have a great weekend!

Thank you for your support of our school. It is an honor to be a part of the Maltby community.

Important Notice About Internet Safety

The best way to protect children from online harm is to keep computers in a family area of the home. Visibility allows parents to look over the students' shoulders without being too oppressive. Young children should have a parental chaperone whenever they are on the Internet. Two sites that discuss these issues and offer advice can be found at www.safekids.com and www.safeteens.com.

Hyperlinks to staff web sites (located on the Staff page) are provided for student and parent convenience, and all staff web sites are hosted by external Internet service providers. Monroe Public Schools assumes no liability for content contained on external service provider sites. Filtering software from one of the providers listed below is recommended to prevent unauthorized access to sites beyond the District's control.
