MJP Students desire to create warm homes for our animal friends

Greetings MJP Families!!!

We are continuing to “Pay It Forward” with our “Doing the Right Thing” Challenge.  The enthusiasm and excitement of helping others has become so contagious that even our Chief Academic Superintendent, Dr. Eileen De Los Reyes, was inspired to bring it back to her office!

Ms. Daniels’, our Science Specialist, is leading an initiative to help animals that have been rescued.  We are asking families to contribute towels and blankets to support comfortable sleeping quarters for animals whose home are inside animal shelters.  If you could "spare some change" we will take that too! :) If you can help us to help our animal friends, we would appreciate it.

MJP International Potluck Literacy Night

The MJP is COOOOOOOOOOOKING up a good time on Thursday, December 19th from 4:00 – 6:30 p.m.  We are hosting our infamous International Potluck Literacy Night.  We are doing arts and crafts, eating delicious foods from all over the world, listening to amazing guest readers, and much much more.  We are giving away cool books and even raffling off a few baskets!

We would appreciate it if families would bring a nice dish to share with other families that night.  It will be a great way to build a sense of community and get to know our families and friends from the Michael J. Perkins! J

For more information, please contact Ms. Correa-Gonzalez.

Urban Nutcracker

Unfortunately we will not be able to take the school to the Urban Nutcracker because we were not able to meet an internal deadline.  We are saddened by this and will do much better the next time. Teachers will be sending home your child’s money.  Please do not be discouraged. We will have another chance to do this again real soon! If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Martin.  Thanks. Have a great winter break!J
