Dear Michelson Community,

I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

Just a few items of note:

Monday, March 1--Michelson Parent Club Meeting 12:15 p.m.
There is lots of information to cover, so the officers moved the time up.  We hope you can attend!  It may be outside or in the art room pending weather conditions.

Tuesday, March 2--Read Across America!  Ask your student about Mrs. Francis' special celebrations!

Friday, March 5--Choice Board Day

Many thanks to you all for the love and support that you have given me following the announcement of my transition to my new position. I want to assure you that the District will take the utmost care to find the perfect match for the kids, the staff, and the community in filling the position. The early notification gives us lots of time to find someone who is the perfect fit for the job!

For our fifth grade families, we are working on plans for what a promotion ceremony can look like! We have a few ideas in for consideration, and we will be in touch soon.

Have a happy and safe weekend!

Take care,
Louise Simson
Principal/Assistant Superintendent
At Albert Michelson Elementary, we believe strongly in the home/school connection as a driver for our students' success.  Communication plays a huge role in creating a transformative learning environment.  Each week, the school emails a "News and Update" message in English and Spanish. If you are not currently receiving this regular email and would like to be added to the list, please contact and ask Mrs. Bergantz to add you to the list.  Michelson staff and teachers are just a phone call or email away.  Reach out to us and let us know how we can support your child in the best way possible!
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
