Weekly Update
Dear Michelson Community,

The fourth and fifth grade cohort are having an AMAZING TIME this morning at their track meet!  Activity stations are set up with the teachers and aide staff and the kids are reveling in the opportunity to compete together.  The weather was perfectly cool too.

Upcoming this week:

Wednesday, June 16
5th Grade Promotion by Reservation Only at Avery Middle School at 9:00 a.m.

Thursday, June 17--LAST DAY OF SCHOOL
Field Day all grades in cohort!

I want to take this opportunity to thank our amazing classified staff that have pulled off so many terrific and fun opportunities for the kids to participate in organized play this year. A huge shout out to Ginger Fleck for the yearbook this year. I LOVE that we create this in house and print with a local vendor to keep the cost down and give everyone a free copy.

A big thank you to all of our parents that have turned in the residency documents. For those few that still have to complete the process, please turn in the required paperwork by Monday, so we can roster your student.

Regarding the topic of masking, I know this is a hot button issue. Guidance EVOLVES. You may or may not agree with the current restrictions, but we have some time before school starts in the Fall. The District must follow the required Public Health guidelines; however, things are very fluid. Please take a breath and see what shapes up for fall!

If you have any library books or tech checked out, please return by Monday!

Josh O’Geen will be joining us next week to meet the kids and staff. We welcome him aboard!

Have a wonderful 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.
