Mayflower Mill


December 2018


It is hard to believe our first semester is quickly coming to an end. We have enjoyed watching all of our students grow and learn this semester and will continue to do so until Winter Break begins. It is very important for your child to be in attendance as we finish up second 9 weeks report card testing these next few weeks. Please note our last day of school for this semester will be Friday, December 21st and students return to school on Tuesday, January 8th. We hope all of our families enjoy a safe Winter Break!

Mark your calendar for the Barnes & Noble Book Fair on Tuesday, December 4th from 5:30-7:30pm. You can shop for gifts, or a Mayflower Va"Milla" Shake from Starbucks, enjoy a performance from the dance club and listen to a book reading. A percentage of sales from Mayflower shoppers will be donated back to the school! 

With cooler weather, it's important to make sure your child is dressed appropriately. Please make sure your child is prepared to go outside with a coat, hat and gloves for recess. We will go outside to recess each day unless it is raining, snowing heavily, or the temperature is below 20 degrees. Please check the weather report daily to help your child make appropriate choices in what to wear. Per TSC policy, all students are required to go to recess each day unless they have a note from the doctor. If your child has outgrown a coat and you no longer have any use for it, please consider donating to our caring closet for students who may not have one. Also, if your child is in need of a coat, hat or gloves please contact us and we will try to get one for them.


Our lost and found table is very full! If your child is missing anything please have them check the table outside of the office. You may also call us and we would be happy to look for the item for you. Unclaimed items will be donated.

With winter weather approaching, the possibility of a 2 hour delay increases. If the delay is 2 hours, school will begin at 10:50am. Students should not come to school before 10:50am. If your child rides a bus, the pick-up time will be delayed by 2 hours. For example, if your child's bus comes at 8:35 on a normal day, it will arrive at 10:35 on a day we have a 2 hour delay.On 2 hour delay days, we will not serve breakfast. Our lunch will begin serving at 11:30, our regular time for Kindergarten. We again encourage everyone to register for the text message alerts. It is the most convenient notification concerning delays, closings and other events at Mayflower Mill Elementary. The TSC web page is also a fast way to learn about school delays and closings.


Although the Christmas Parade was canceled, we would still like to congratulate Ian Taylor and Shanira Dallas for being selected to represent MME as our Snow Prince and Princess. We would also like to congratulate Paulo Montes-Paz and Keiley Eads for being selected as alternates. Snow Prince and Princess are open to all 5th grade students. Students must write an anonymous letter to the staff stating why they would make a great snow prince and princess in the Christmas Parade. 

Please do not forget to sign up for text alerts and notifications so you can be notified of a delay or cancellation.

Each year we seem to have some confusion around the TSC Calendar. Please pay attention to the following dates. We hope addressing these days early will help with the confusion surrounding them. 

     Martin Luther King, Jr Day- School is IN SESSION on Monday, January 21st. Students         are expected to be in attendance. Students who miss school on this day will not have an         excused absence unless seen by a doctor. 

     President's Day- President's Day is used as a snow makeup day for November 15th.             School is IN SESSION on Monday, February 18th.

     Snow makeup days- We will be utilizing our 1 built in snow makeup day on February             18th. All future days missed will be added to the end of the school year. Please stay tuned       to future newsletters regarding the last day of school.
