This Wednesday, December 5th is an early release day. Students will have lunch and recess at MBS, and will be dismissed at 12:45.

On Friday we were lucky enough to have some Four Winds visitors! They brought in snags, or dead/dying trees, and Rigatonis got to tear them apart to see what lived inside!

Quick Reminders

Hi there families,

Just a few reminders…

  1. Oscar is full and MBS Ospreys have earned an all-school celebration. Tomorrow will be Pajama Day! 
  2. We ALSO earned a classroom celebration! We voted and next Thursday we will have a technology period. A letter will be sent home with more details.
  3. Last but not least, if your student trick-or-treated for Unicef, please encourage them to bring those in tomorrow!

Hi there!

Just checked the weather forecast and it looks like tomorrow will be a nice day to walk over to Mazza’s. With that said, it may be muddy, so please encourage your child to wear boots!

We will be heading over right after recess ends (11:45). If you are hoping to walk with us, please arrive at MBS at 11:40. We will meet in our classroom. If you are planning to meet us at Mazza’s, we are aiming to be there around 12:15.

Ms. Riggs

Important Announcements

Hi Families!

Tonight is our first night of homework! Please check your student’s home folder for more information.

I am so excited to share that we have filled our classroom jar by being safe, respectful, and responsible! Our class voted, and on the afternoon of this Friday, September 21 we will create forts in our classroom. If possible, students are encouraged to bring in sheets and blankets to help build!

Lastly, a reminder that Thursday, September 20 from 6:30-7:30 is Open House. Hope to see you there!

Rescheduling Bayside

Depending on the weather, our plan is to head over to Bayside on Monday 6/18. We will leave MBS after lunch at about 12:00, and leave Bayside to get back in time for Unified Arts at about 1:30. There will be no swimming.

If you are planning on meeting us at Bayside, please call the main office on Monday morning to confirm whether or not we are going.


Ms. Riggs


A reminder that we are headed to Bayside tomorrow! Please look for a notice coming home with more information regarding our field trip. We will leave MBS at 11:00 and leave Bayside to return to school at 2:00.  Our class will swim between 12:00-1:00.  If you’d like to meet us there, please feel free. We’d love to have you!

I took a count for hot lunch and only two students signed up. Please make sure to send your student with a lunch if they did not sign up for a bagged lunch.
