Marion Cross School has a new newsletter
A new publication coming your way called "Whose Wise Words"
Here are some updates from the Marion Cross School staff and principal and a new newsletter coming your way.
May 30 - Holiday, No School
June 20 - Tentative last day of school for students. This may be earlier, but it won't be later.
Message From The Principal
I hope that this message finds you enjoying a delightful vacation week with your children. The weather could not be more perfect for spring vacation. On a personal note, I decided to take a few vacation days this week and do some projects around our home. A couple of days have been spent being an electrician’s assistant and helping to rewire our home. I worked as a carpenter’s assistant one day this week, tearing out old plaster walls and taking down stairwells. One last project on my vacation to-do list is to move my apiary to another location. Sadly, the last bout of winter rain was not so kind to my bees.
On a school note, I wanted to give you an update about our Ukrainian fundraising efforts. Our school earned $3,014.60 through the coins drive; of that, $1,314.60 was coins. Jessica and I had the pleasure of taking the funds to the bank and using the coin machine. For your information, $1,314.60 in coins is about two five gallon buckets! A huge shoutout to our amazing 6th graders who coordinated these efforts and made this a reality, with the help of some pretty awesome MCS staff of course.
This will be the last issue of Cross Words. Starting next week Who the Owl will be taking over with a newly titled newsletter, Who’s Wise Words. This coincides with the release of our website that has gone through a major redesign. I hope that you will take a few moments to explore the new website and see all that it has to offer. Make sure to look for the subject title of Who’s Wise Words for the next school newsletter.

The below message was on the Norwich Listserv last week. I have noticed that some of our MCS students would fall into the category of gathering on the porch of the Norwich Inn after school. Please take a few moments to mention to your children that this should not be the case. Here is the Listserv message:
“We want our front porch of the Norwich Inn to be a community gathering space for all to enjoy. However, over the last couple years we have had many issues with children gathering on the porch after school. Some of them leave quite a mess when they are finished with food and wrappers strewn about. We have had to replace several window screens because they have broken them with the rocking chairs. They might even climb on the railings and the fence. We have also received some noise complaints from a couple of our lodging guests. We have tried discussing this with the groups when we find them out there. However, the issues continue to exist. Due to this, we may have to move towards not allowing anyone under the age of 18 on the porch without adult supervision. We would hate for it to get to this point, so if your child happens to be going to Dan & Whit’s or our property after school please have a conversation with them about respecting the property here. We want everyone to be able to continue to use this space freely. Thanks for any assistance you are able to provide!”
Have a lovely weekend,
