A Message from Principal JJ Hinderberger
Dear Families,

It is hard to believe it is already February! I hope you are enjoying the increase in daylight. The second trimester ends on February 12th. Parent teacher conferences are scheduled for February 13th and 14th. Your child’s teacher will be in contact with you regarding the conference schedule.

During conferences you will receive information about the recent MAP and DIBLES assessments as well as go over your child’s report card for the second trimester. If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.

I am pleased to announce that Lori Hoover (former principal of Auke Bay Elementary) will be the long-term sub for me when I am out on maternity leave. Baby Hinderberger is expected to arrive on March 8 so Ms. Hoover is expected to sub from March 9th until May 22nd.

The time between now and Spring Break is an exciting time for learning. It is important that your child come to school every day and on time so they do not miss out on important learning experiences. I would like to thank all of you for the hard work, care, understanding, and commitment you have made towards your child’s education. Your commitment to your child’s education at home, plays a huge part in their success in the classroom. Thank you for all that you do to support your child and our school.

With gratitude,
JJ Hinderberger, Principal

MRCS Routine and Schedule Information
• Recess: All K-5 students have recess three times a day during the school day for 15 minutes each.

• Specials: “Specials” refers to a time every day that students go to library, counseling, music, and physical education class. Each class has one special for 45 minutes Monday-Thursday.

• Morning Routine: Prior to school starting, students either go into the gym for breakfast (starting at 7:30) or to the playground to play outside (at 7:40). Once the bell rings at 7:55, students walk to class. If students arrive after 8am they should stop by the office for a tardy slip before going to class.

• After School Routine: At the end of the day students are walked to the buses, RALLY, or the parent pick up zone.

• Unity Assemblies: Unity Assemblies are school-wide assemblies that take place in the gym every Friday at 8am. During Unity Assemblies we sing, celebrate, and build community. Parents are invited to attend!
  • Need to get a message to your student?
    Please call with any after school instructions or messages for students before 1:30 pm to ensure we can deliver them before the end of the school day. Thank you!
  • Keep your information updated!
    If any of your phone numbers or emergency contact numbers change, please let the school office know as soon as possible.
  • If you receive a call from the school…
    If you receive a call from anywhere in the building, the phone number that appears on your phone will be the main line. Please take a moment to check for messages before calling back. Unfortunately we do not have a way to know who called you and would like to connect you to the correct person!
