Dear Parents,

It’s time for our SPRING BOOK FAIR! Summer is coming soon and we want our students to have plenty of books for summer reading! Our book fair will begin on Monday, May 11th and will end on Friday, May 15th. Students will be bringing home flyers with books that will be available that week to purchase. If you are sending money to school for students to purchase books, please remember to add 7.5% tax onto your order! Please make checks payable to Mossy Head School.

The book fair is also available online this year at Books ordered online will be delivered to the school 7-10 business days after the book fair ends. Online ordering is available from May 5-17th, a couple of days earlier and later than the actual book fair! To make it fun and memorable for the students, we will have activities each day that coincide with National Library Week (see the back of this paper for more details).  I am looking forward to an awesome, fun-filled week!

Happy Reading,

Mrs. Heather Simmons
Media Specialist

Mossy Head School's students are ready for the FSA! They have worked hard all year and it's time to SHINE and show all they've learned! We believe in you Mustangs and know you are going to do AWESOME!!!
Mossy Head School is proud to announce the Student of the Month for March is Makenzi Waldfogel. Makenzi is a 5th grade student in Mrs. Coleman's class. She shows her dedication to learning by always doing her best in school and being a great example for her peers. Congratulations, Makenzi!

Students in Mrs. Blanton’s 3rd grade classroom used Prezi to create a presentation for their class on air pressure and barometers. Students worked during their enrichment group to research and create the Prezi. Using Prezi in this Digital Lead Classroom at Mossy Head School is one way students incorporate technology in their everyday learning.
