Where has the year gone? How can it be May already? What a treat for all of us to spend
these 180 school days with such bright and loving children. Thank you for sharing them with
us on a daily basis. This will be the last Principal Notes for the year so please have a safe
and relaxing summer. We look forward to seeing you all again in August!
Now is the time to register for kindergarten. If you have a child entering school or know of a
neighbor or friend with a kindergarten age child living in the Moore school zone,
registration packets are available in the front office. Please register children early so we
can plan accordingly for next year.
Teacher Appreciation Week:
Teacher appreciation week is May 7th - 11th. Thank you to Dayla Baugh for coordinating the
activities. Mrs. Baugh will be sending home information and requests for your help. Thank
you in advance!
Our students are eagerly awaiting our annual field days planned for May 2nd and 3rd . Mrs.
Paul and Mr. Shaw have another wonderful theme that promotes wellness and fitness. A
GREAT time will be had by all! A special thank you to Sullivan Ellinor for coordinating the
event and to all of you who volunteer to help.
We are very fortunate to have a wonderful group of mentors who meet weekly with
assigned students to help them with academics and to be their cheerleader! This year we have
been fortunate to have a large number of mentors from our neighbors at Westminster Oaks
as well as other community agencies and parents. If you are interested in joining this great
mentoring group, please contact Mrs. Eaton in our guidance office and she will be happy to
set you up!
We love celebrating birthdays but please be sure to check with your child’s teacher.
Typically, this is not a party but a special treat that is brought in at snack time along with a
congratulatory “Happy Birthday” sung by classmates.
It was wonderful to see so many of you at our school carnival. It was such a success because
you were there! Thank you to our PTM board: Mary Bliss, Gail Steinkuehler, Kim Newman,
Michele Meyer, Janel Bowcutt, Paula Edmunds, Paulina Brewer and Helene Potlock for
coordinating everything all year long and to all of you who sent in items or provided
coverage at the booths. It was truly a super fun event enjoyed by all with $3,000 was raised
to assist with technology needs in the classrooms. This is just another example of what a
great group of parents we have at Moore!
Come for Lunch:
You are welcome any day to come have lunch with your child. Feel free to buy a lunch
through the cafeteria or bring in lunch for you and your child. We ask that you please do not
share food or bring food for anyone other than your child. We have several students with
food allergies and medical issues that you certainly may not be aware of. Just having you
here is a treat in itself! Thank you for understanding.
Look for information to come home with your child’s report card about “stepping up” to the
next grade. Our teachers are compiling suggestions for you on skills your child needs to
maintain to be ready for the next grade. These will also be posted on teacher websites so feel
free to visit us at www.moore.leon.k12.fl.us Be sure to sign up for the listserv too so you are
immediately notified when school-wide information is sent out.
