Summer is here!  The weather is getting warmer and the days are longer!  Our students have made BIG improvements this year and we want to prevent that “summer slide”.  In order to keep your child’s brain thinking and working, the staff at McDonald Elementary has put together a summer activity calendar.  Children in grades k and 1st brought home a tan calendar and students in grades 2nd-5th brought their calendar home on blue paper.

 

Along with the calendar, teachers have provided your child with a few websites that will help with math and reading.  Your child is familiar with these websites and they know their passwords!

From all of us here at McDonald Elementary…HAVE A WONDERFUL SUMMER!

 

The 4th and 5th grade students, along with Mr. Gozzard, put on a wonderful performance!

Today our 3rd-5th graders went on a fun filled field trip to Comerica Park! Students took part in an awesome lesson on weather which included a demonstration using liquid nitrogen to form a cloud.

After the lesson, students watched the Tigers take on the Rangers!

This year we are getting parents involved on a whole new way at McDonald Elementary! Dads are now volunteering their time in classrooms and around our school thanks to a new program dedicated to getting our dads in to our hallways and classrooms called Watch D.O.G.S–Dads of Great Students!

Here’s our first Watch DOG volunteer Mr. Majrad and his daughter Suha. Mr. Majrad made himself available to read to students in Mrs. Hachem’s 2nd grade and to help out on the playground during lunch recess!
