Mazzuchelli News

May 7, 2021

From the Principal: 

Next Friday (May 14) is the Foam Frolic. This event is the one and only fun(d)raiser for our Parent Association and they have done a wonderful job of preparing for and promoting it. Money is generated through family sponsorships and the selling of "signs of support." If your child does not yet have a sign, please purchase at least one from the Mazzuchelli Office next week ($20 apiece). We hope every student feels represented and supported!
After a full slate of classes in the morning, the event will begin with an all-school picnic lunch at 12:00. Then our students will spend the afternoon participating in games and other activities with their classmates on the expansive Central Campus grounds, including a 40-minute session for each grade level to walk the track and experience the PA-owned and operated Foam Machine during every lap. Students may wear any school-appropriate clothing for the Foam Frolic. It should be a fantastic fun afternoon celebrating the halfway point of May!

ISASP Reports
As we are nearing the end of the year, families will be soon receiving end-of-year grade reports. Often, we include standardized test reports as well. We would like you to know in advance that the Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP) report for your child(ren) will be delayed this year. We have been informed by Iowa Assessments that the achievement level reporting for the individual student, school, district, and state will not be available until August 2021. This is due to offering remote testing for virtual students in late-May. We continue to be thankful for your partnership this year in educating our students.

For the Foam Frolic on Fri., May 14, we will have a picnic lunch outside featuring walking tacos. The original menu for May 14 (salisbury steak) will now be moved to Thurs., May 13

Virtual Learning:
Virtual Learning Option
Most students have been attending school in-person. Our teachers strive to make virtual learning as beneficial as possible; however, in-person learning has proven to be much more effective. As families make daily decisions, please keep in mind that virtual learning should be considered as an option only for COVID-related health concernsThe virtual learning option is a temporary solution to a temporary problem. Students who do choose the virtual option are expected to attend and fully engage in all classes unless their health prevents them from doing so.
Virtual Attendance Reminder

If a student is going to be participating in virtual learning, please be sure to let the office know each day that this will occur.

Daily Information:

Charged Computers

Please remind students to bring their computers to school each day already charged. There has been an increase in instances of uncharged computers this month and we don't have an excess number of cords and outlets available. Thanks for your help in encouraging student responsibility.



Reminder: School Hours start at 7:40AM, Please make sure your student is in the building and to their 1st period class by 7:40 or they will be considered Tardy for that class.  Thank you!
