We welcome you and your child to a fun and invigorating five weeks of learning intended to enrich and strengthen your child's learning abilities and skills. From iMovie production to Lego Robotics to Math Adventures and other classes, our summer school faculty has prepared a wide range of learning experiences for all students. Your child will most often be working in small groups, though there will be many opportunities for some individual activities. Learning will be hands-on and collaborative, guided by an expert faculty who enjoy working with young children. We will be creating a new community of learners in five weeks!
Our summer school teachers hail from MPI and other schools locally.
They are familiar with MPI's educational philosophy and school
policies. They will be assisted by Mid-Pacific high school students
and alumni (student aides). Our full-time summer school Health Aide is
Ms. Sumilao, who'll tend to students' medical needs (441-3807). If you
have any questions, please call the preschool/elementary school office
at 441-3800. Office hours are 7:00am - 3:30pm daily, except June 11
and July 3.
Our primary mode of communication with you will be through the MPI
. Please read my weekly letter and your
child's teachers' blogs, posted every Friday afternoon after 5:00pm
through July 14.
Simply go to the elementary website where you'll see
my letter. Scroll down and find the teachers' summer school webpages.
You'll be able to read updated highlights of the week in your child's
summer sessions and any other information the teacher wishes to share
with parents. These summer-session "blogs" might also include photos.
In addition, your child will be taking home a manila packet every
Friday. It will contain a weekly assessment of your child's
performance in the morning classes and afternoon sports camp (skills,
behavior, attitude, and effort). Please review the assessment, and
have your child return the packet to the school every Monday morning.
A reminder about drop-offs and pick-ups:
All students should be
dropped off in the turnaround area closest to the elementary office.
Drop-off begins only at 7:30am daily. We do not provide any
supervision prior to 7:30am. Entering Kindergartners will be escorted
to the dining room from the drop-off area. All parents of preschoolers
are required to walk their children directly to the preschool
classroom. Only preschool parents are permitted to park at the
turnaround, except where traffic cones will be situated for drop-offs.
Anticipate some traffic during drop-offs and pick-ups the first few
days as everyone adjusts to the schedule.
Pick-up begins at noon at the same drop-off area. I strongly suggest
arriving at the drop-off 5-10 minutes after your child's last scheduled
session. We will not allow parking in the turnaround and waiting for
your child because this will cause a traffic jam. Any children not
picked up within 15 minutes of the end of their summer school session
will be taken to Room 4, but there will be a charge for late pick-up.
Pack a healthy snack and beverage and lunch (if applicable) for your
child. Might be a good time to review the summer school handbook with
A bright, fun summer awaits your child! On behalf of the faculty and staff, welcome to summer at MPI!
For our children,
Edna L. Hussey
