PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE - NOV 12, 2018

Dear Mott Hall Community,

November is upon us! This season’s beauty is marked by the changing colors of the leaves.   Take the time to enjoy!  This week opens our season of giving.

We need your support in our Canned Food Drive.  Have your child bring in a 1 can of food to donate to our Annual Canned Food Drive between Nov. 13 - Nov. 28.

The PTA currently kicked off the Yankee Candle Fundraiser.  Last year the proceeds from the fundraiser were used to give gifts to our students. The class of 2018 received a party, our current 8th graders received senior shirts and the rest of our student body received metro card cases. These wonderful opportunities and gifts are able to happen because of our PTA fundraiser.  We ask that you support us by participating in the fundraiser.  We will be using the proceeds for school events.

We are now in our 2nd Marking Period.  We ask that you continue to monitor your child’s academic progress on Pupil Path.  Use this tool to communicate with teachers.  We offer tutoring during lunch, homework help with afterschool program and will begin our Saturday Academy next month.  

Our Parent Teacher Conferences are scheduled for November 27th.  Please mark your calendars. We look forward to our meeting.

Last week, we celebrated our Mott Hall Character Day tradition. It was a lot of fun! Our Scholars and teachers dressed as characters from books, movies, TV shows and famous historical personalities.  Our spooky music during lunch made the event all the more entertaining. 

A special Thank You to our Veteran’s on November 12, 2018; we thank you for your service and ultimate sacrifice.

Do not miss our November PTA Meeting is scheduled for November 14, 2018 at 6 p.m.  Your participation makes the difference!

Have a wonderful week!

In collaboration,

Ms. De Los Santos-Peña

CURRICULUM

The goal of the Mott Hall School’s curriculum is the development of skilled students who are self-directed critical thinkers.

 

Young Scholars

Mott Hall students are considered young scholars. They learn subject matter through a constructivist and project-based approach using powerful learning techniques such as Socratic dialogues, literature circles, writing for student publications, digital film making and web site creation.

The curriculum is further enriched by its alignment to the Common Core NationalStandards. Students are offered accelerated special courses and seminars as well as special enrichment electives such as chess, robotics and stock market studies which engage them in real world investigations tied directly to student needs and interests.

TECHNOLOGY

Mott Hall has a technology rich environment. In an effort to confront the digital divide, we use the PupilPath online system to give       parents and students instant access to grades, attendance, and progress reports.
