Malabon News

Attendance is Important!

As we near the end of the 2014-2015 school year, we are  making sure all students receive many of the essential skills they need to move forward next year. State testing is in progress and classroom lessons and activities are in full swing. As you make plans for appointments or trips, please take into consideration the importance of your child’s attendance. Being on time and ready to learn everyday is the “B” in M.A.L.A.B.O.N…it is one of our guiding principles. Thank you for making it a priority in your family to be at school every day. Your support makes the biggest difference.

Classroom Placement for 2015-2016

 The Malabon School staff will soon begin the process of developing classroom placements for next year. The placement of students into individual classrooms is an important responsibility belonging to all schools. The Malabon staff devotes a great deal of time and energy to this task so that a careful and thoughtful placement can be made for every student. Our goal is for every child to be in a supportive, challenging, and successful environment. We know this is best accomplished when we create balanced, teachable classroom groups.

A team of teachers who know your child will carefully consider his/her learning needs while making classroom placements. The specialists and the principal work with this team and consider the following factors.

  • A balance of class size and age
  • A balance of academic strengths
  • A balance of learning styles
  • A balance of boys and girls
  • A balance of social skills
  • Consideration of parental information
  • Placement of students with special learning needs

Parental Information

We recognize there may be times when parents wish to share specific needs, concerns or information regarding classroom placement. A Parent Input Form is available in the front office or you can click on Classroom Placement Request form 2015-2016 for an electronic copy. This information will be considered along with the other placement factors in our effort to create balanced, teachable classroom groups. Final teacher assignments and classroom placements for students will be announced at our “Meet Your Teacher Event” in August.

Malabon Carnival Reminder

On Saturday, May 30th from 11:00-2:00 Malabon will be having it’s annual carnival. This year is a special one as it will be the last carnival we have in our old school. We will be advertising this carnival a bit more and inviting past families to come and take a final tour of the building and enjoy the festivities. It is going to be a fun event! Due to the extra invitations, it is possibly going to bring a crowd. Please consider walking or carpooling to this event. Parking is at a minimum due to construction. Hopefully the day will be sunny and walking will be an option for many!

Don’t forget to bring in box tops to trade for activity bracelets to use at the carnival. PTO members are in the cafeteria each morning to collect the box tops. Also, if you are able to donate to your classes raffle basket, please send items in as soon as possible.

Walking Groups on Walk and Bike to School Day this Wednesday!

Wednesday is Walk and Bike to School Day!

Walk and Bike to school day is Wednesday May 6.  Any child who uses body power to get to school that day will be entered into a drawing to receive great prizes!
There will be parents leading walking groups from several locations that morning for any kids who would like to join those groups:
Norene Walters- leaving at 7:20am from the corner of Sean St and Echo Hollow.
Rachel Hansen-leaving at 7:30am from the corner of Riviera and N. Clarey.
Emilyann LeGrue-leaving at 7:30am from the corner of Century and N.Clarey.
Alanna Kephart-leaving at 7:35 from the corner of Marshall and Chase.
Crystal Keener-leaving at 7:35 from the corner of Waite and Patteson.
Christi Cameron-leaving at 7:50 from the corner of Jay and Wilhi.
If your child is walking with any of these groups please meet 5 minutes before the scheduled leave time.
Another option for those who might not otherwise be able to walk to school is too drop off at the corner closest to the school so they still get credit for walking.
As a reminder May 1st starts out activity challenge month.  Track your family’s physical activity at fireupyourfeet.org or fill out an activity tracker each week in May to help our school earn extra money for health and nutrition.

Get Fit and Help Malabon School!

Walk and Bike

Fire up Your Feet

Walk and bike to school day is Wednesday, May 6th but don’t let that be your only activity for the month.  Malabon is participating in the Fire up Your Feet Challenge throughout the entire month of May.  All physical activity counts and the more parents’ staff and students we have tracking activity, the better the chance of turning that activity into money for our school.  In October our school was able to win $1900 to use towards physical activity and nutrition for our school.  We have already used some of this to purchase a double Dutch jump rope kit and help fund our 4th and 5th grade track.  Now we have the opportunity to win again.  How can you help?  Parents can register themselves and their students to track activity at www.fireupyourfeet.org

OR just fill out an activity tracker, which will soon be coming home, for your student for each week in May.  If you have any questions please call Norene Walters at 302-480-2453.
