Weekly Update, May 18, 2020

Good Morning, 2B Families,

Happy Spirt Week!  I hope you had a nice weekend and were able to enjoy some sunshine.  This week we will be celebrating our SMM pride with a Spirit Week.  I have attached the flyer  which includes dates and themes for the week.  We are kicking the week off with Pajama Day today.  Reminder: Friday, May 22 is a non-student day!  Your child will not have work to complete in Google Classroom this day!  Due to this, we will be taking our spelling test on Thursday this week.

Important Tidbits:

Epic! ReadingI just wanted to give a shoutout to the class!  They have read over 500 books in the past few weeks – I am blown away!  I have assigned a collection titled “FriendSHAPES” for this week.  This is absolutely optional, however fits with our math objective for the week.  The collection includes books relating shapes to art, space, animals, Hawaii (who doesn’t love some tropical paradise?!) and much more!  I made sure to pick a book/video out for each unique interest in our 2B classroom. 😊

Please send photos for Mrs. Mallahan!  She is retiring after 32 years of teaching at St. Mary Magdalen!  To help with her sendoff, we are putting together a video full of thanks for passing her joy and love of reading onto the SMM Community.  Please take a picture of your student or student(s) with their favorite book and send to Melissa Morrier-Turk at MMorrierTurk@stmarym.org by Friday, May 29th. If your student would like to write a note to Mrs. Mallahan or hold up a poster with an affirmation (thanks, you rock, etc.) that would be great as well!  Thank you for helping make this retirement for Mrs. Mallahan a special one!

My name is Melissa Morrier-Turk, I am a graduate of SMM (class of 1986) and have been a member of the parish community much of my life. I have a B.S. in Business with an emphasis in Human Resources from Central Washington University and have spent my 23 years working in this field, traveling all over the USA and Canada as an HR Director, as well as a corporate trainer. My husband Mike and I have two kids, our son will be a Junior at Archbishop Murphy High School and our daughter will be a 7th grader here at SMM. As a parent, I have been an active member of the SMM community, most recently wrapping up my role as the Parent Club President this year and V.P. last year. I have also been an active member of the auction for the past 8 years, along with numerous opportunities to volunteer in my children’s classrooms and through club activities. In my off time I enjoy running, cycling, hiking, anything outdoorsy really. I have absolutely loved working with and getting to know so many of the families here at SMM as a parent and am looking forward to getting to know you all better as part of your school community!
