Hello Mt. Washington Elementary School families,
Happy August! Phew this summer has flown by. Whether you are registered for the BCA or in-person, I assure you that you will remain a part of our MWES community and that each staff member at MWES misses you. We are disappointed that we will not be able to start our school year with students in the building. We miss the buzz and excitement of the beginning of the school year. We miss the amazing volunteers and families and we miss our students! We understand the need to be safe and healthy, just know we care and miss you all!
Please welcome back Mrs. Dionna Bickley as our Assistant Principal this 2020-2021 school year! We are so excited to have her back with us. Mrs. Ashley Marker, formerly known as Ms. Luckett, is also joining our team again. She was a teacher here a few years ago and is now back to stay. :) Along with those familiar faces we have a couple of new ones too. Welcome Mrs. Nichole Fitzner, resource teacher; Valerie Weir, afternoon front desk receptionist; and Irvin Holt, evening night sweeper. We are thrilled to have these people as a part of our Braves community!
As soon as we have a finalized list of which students are attending and which teachers are teaching the Cloud Academy, we will complete class lists. We are hopeful that this will be done by the end of the week. We will post your child’s teacher in your Parent Portal account in Infinite Campus. If you have not registered please note that your child will not be on a classlist. If you need assistance registering, please contact the school.
Back to School Night:
We will be doing Back to School Night virtually on Monday, August 24th. Each teacher will record a short presentation and we will link it to the MWES website for your viewing pleasure.
Starting on August 19th, the teachers will personally be reaching out to each one of their students and their families.
We have finally started getting our new Chromebooks in!! We will be handing out Chromebooks August 19, 20, 21 and 24th. A schedule with more information will be out shortly.
Please note in order to get a Chromebook, you have to have your child/children registered (either in the Cloud Academy or Face to Face), you must sign off on the user agreement (will be sent out with information about Chromebook pick up) and you must pay the $35 user rental fee per child. This can be paid in cash or check (made payable to MWES) on the day you pick up the Chromebook. New, this year you can also pay for your fees on My School Bucks program, this is the same program that is used to add money to your child’s lunch account. There is a fee (approx. $2) applied when using My School Bucks.
Our instructional fee is $20, this too can be paid in a separate check on the day you pickup your Chromebook. The various fees go into different accounts, which is why we have to collect them separately. Again the instruction fee can be paid by check, cash or My School Bucks program.
There will be more information coming out soon, be sure to check your email and social media.
Thank you for all your patience as we are getting everything organized. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out.
Have a great day,
