Upcoming Events - June 2, 2017

Dear McDonald International Students and Families,

With just 3 weeks left of school, we have many exciting events to wrap up the 2016-2017 school year. Young Authors Day will take place on June 15th in the morning, Field day will take place on June 16 during the day, our Spring Concert will take place on June 16th at 6:30pm (in the Lincoln High School Auditorium), and the 5th grade promotion will take place on June 21 in the morning. With all of these events, we could use your help. If you are interested in volunteering, please let us know. Also, if you have any questions about any of these events, please ask!

Over the last couple of weeks, the teachers have been making class lists for next year. Two weeks prior to the start of school, families will receive an email with their child’s teachers. At that time, we will also provide you with information about signing up for your child’s google group. When creating class lists, teachers consider a variety of social and academic factors. The teachers at McDonald International know your children well. Please trust us in making these decisions. Attention rising 5th grade students and families- this coming year the 5th grade Spanish and Japanese Immersion students will be mixed together when they are in their ELA (English Language Arts) class. We are super excited to try this and feel this will be a huge benefit to our students both socially and academically.

Lastly, in order to create a more secure environment, Seattle Public Schools will be installing a new system where all adults entering the building during school hours will be buzzed into the building. This project will take place over the summer and we will begin using it this fall. Stay tuned for more information.

I hope you have a great weekend and as always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out.

Sincerely, 
Michelle Goldberg
