Greetings Fox Families! This is Anita Roane, your principal with our weekly announcements. 

Friday we held our first Fox Summit for the school year.  It was an Epic event.  For those of you new to Moss-Nuckols this is our monthly time to come together as a school and have a “school community meeting” with a specific focus. The students were able to see the chants that go with each Den of Determination. 

The anticipation is building and the Student Reveal is coming up very soon!  No one knows which Den the students will become a member of, that is what makes it so exciting! Once all of the students are put into a Den, the friendly competition begins!  I can’t wait to see how the Dens will rack up the points, all for making good choices.

Our beautiful mural is complete.  You can see it as you enter the front atrium of our building.  I want to give a special thanks to our PTA for helping with the funding to make this a reality.  Checkout our facebook page for a video of the mural.  I would also like to thank Oasis Heating & Air Conditioning, LLC for their generous corporate sponsor donation.  When you assist the PTA you assist our students.

You should have received your student’s interim report Friday. Please contact the teacher if you have any questions.

In recognition of Constitution Day which is this Tuesday we are asking everyone to wear red, white and blue.  This day recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. The teachers have planned special lessons to help celebrate Constitution Day and develop habits of citizenship with our Foxes.  We will also be incorporating lessons to observe National Hispanic Heritage Month. It is observed from Sept. 15th - October 15th by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

Don’t forget if you don’t  have access to a computer or the internet? You can come to the M-NES cafeteria anytime from 5-7 pm on Tuesday, September 17th for our Internet Cafe! Chromebooks will be set up for your use. Games and activities will be available for the students. Title I will be available for homework help- if you have questions about how to help your child with their homework. Administration will also be on hand to explain MAP test results on the computer.   Don’t worry about food, we’ve got that covered.  Come on by!
September is Attendance Awareness Month! If you think one day of being absent is just one day out of the fox den, think again! The days add up quickly and your child is missing out on epic learning opportunities.  If your child is not sick, please send them to school daily.  We are excited to see them every day that they are here and we appreciate your support.  We will have incentives each 9 week period for perfect attendance.  You will receive more information about this soon.  After all, It’s cool to be in school!

Congratulations to our Reading Resource Teacher, Ms. Courtney Fisher!  She was nominated and chosen as the LCPS MVP Certified Employee of the Week!  Well Deserved Ms. Fisher!
