February 2018 Newsletter

Principal’s Message

Hello to everyone in the Mornington community. I hope that everyone is keeping warm during the cold winter days.

Please note that your child/children will bring home their report card for the first term on Tuesday, February 20th, which is the day after the Family Day holiday. If you have any questions about the report card, please contact us at the school. Please don’t forget to sign and send back the bottom portion of page 2 with the envelope. Thank you!

We have a number of interesting clubs and activities going on this winter during recess time. I thank our staff for sponsoring these fun events and learning activities.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact us at the school if you have any questions or concerns about school in general or your children in particular.
