Adopt A Senior Donations Due Friday

For the past eight years we have partnered with St. Patrick’s Mercy Home to provide gifts for their seniors who may not have anyone to give them a gift. They are too often forgotten at this time of year. This year perhaps more than others it is important that we continue this. Ours are the only gift they may receive.

We receive a list of wish items for seniors that has been compiled by the staff at St. Pat’s. Some lists are bigger than others and some are quite small. 

Students are asked to bring in a monetary donation toward the purchase of clothing items requested. Students are also able to bring in the following items:

  • Body wash/body lotion (unscented)
  • Shampoo & conditioner 
  • Shaving cream (for men)
  • Fuzzy socks
  • Cans of Ginger ale
  • Plain Chocolate Bars
  • Hair brushes
  • Hand held or stand up mirrors that could be placed on an over bed table if a resident is lying in bed
  • Things to hang in their windows or on a wall in their room.

Every homeroom has signed a card for the seniors. This is a very heartwarming project. Thank you for your continued support. All donations must be handed in by Friday, December 11th.

A Few Reminders from MDJH

Parent Teacher Interviews:

  • On Thursday, December 10, we will be closing at 11:21am for our virtual parent-teacher interviews.
  • Buses will arrive at 11:21 to take students home. 
  • In order to access your parent teacher video conference, sign in to your OPTIS account on a device that has a camera and microphone and press the “meet” button. The teacher will show up in that space at the start time.
  • If you requested a phone conference, the teacher will contact you. The call may come from a blocked or a strange number, so please answer during your meeting time.

12 Days Christmas Chaos at MDJH – We continue to celebrate our 12 Days of Christmas Chaos at MDJH. The schedule is posted below:

Masks – We need your help. Most students are arriving at school with masks, unfortunately, after lunch some of the students misplace them. On average we are passing out 50+ masks a day. There is a shortage and we are waiting on our supply. In the meantime, we would greatly appreciate it if you could send your child with 2 masks daily in case one gets misplaced. 

Friday, December 18 – This will be the last day before the Christmas holidays. Students will be dismissed at 12:30 and buses will be available to take the students home. This will be a compacted day, meaning classes will be slightly shorter, and we will be skipping lunch to have the early dismissal. We are suggesting that students pack a nice recess as there will be no lunch, and there will also be no cafeteria services available on that day.
