TEACHER APPRECIATION
As we head into the last day of classes and finals, it is the perfect time to thank our teachers and staff for all that they’ve done over the course of the year.
 
The MHS PTSA is proud (thanks to your support) to sponsor a staff appreciation faculty breakfast next week for all teachers, custodians, support staff and administrators who touch our kids’ lives. We know that each family and student has their own unique relationships with faculty, but please take a moment to say thank you to those that have made a difference.  
YEARBOOKS ARE HERE!
Yearbook distribution at lunch is underway! Remind your student to bring their green receipt card (if you ordered directly from us) or an online receipt email (if you ordered online through Jostens) with them to pick up their book. We will charge a $5.00 processing fee if no receipt is presented. Books may be picked up through JUNE 15th at lunch or after school in the Yearbook Office, C111. The office will be closed after and books may be picked up in the Fall. There are a limited number of books that will be for sale for $115.00. Checks should be made out to MHS. They Mahiscan sells out every year, so if you need to purchase a book, do so early!

FROM THE NURSES’ OFFICE
Meningococcal Vaccine School Requirement
As of September 1, 2016, all public and private school students entering 7th, 8th and 12th grades in New York State must be fully vaccinated against meningococcal disease types A, C, W and Y in order to attend school.
The meningococcal vaccine protects against serious and sometimes deadly diseases such as meningitis (an infection of the lining of the brain and spinal cord) and sepsis (blood infections). That’s why the vaccine is sometimes called the meningitis vaccine. The vaccine is administered as a shot.

For the 2017-18 school year:
  • One dose of meningococcal vaccine is required for students who will be in 7th or 8th grade
If your child had the first dose before 7th grade, then another dose is not required until 12th grade.
  • Two doses will be required before 12th grade.
Most students entering 12th grade got their first dose when they were younger and are now due for their second dose, or booster. This booster is needed because protection from the vaccine decreases over time.
  • A small number of teens who received two doses before their 16th birthday may need a third dose on or after their 16th birthday in order to enter 12th grade.
  • The only teens who will not need a second dose before 12th grade are those who got their first dose on or after their 16th birthday.
It’s best to check with your doctor to see whether or not your child needs the vaccine. Students who are not up-to- date will not be allowed to attend school until they are vaccinated.

LARCHMONT RECREATIONAL SOCCER
Registration is now open 
 for grades 9-12 this fall. The season begins 9/9 and runs through mid-November. The cost is $120 (a late fee applies after 7/1).  Scholarships are available. To register, go to www.ljsl.org and click on the big red “Register NOW” button. We need at least 60 players to have a high school division (boys and girls play separately). The high school division doesn’t have practices, just games on Saturdays. We balance teams by grade, school and ability but cannot guarantee granting requests for teammates. If you’d like to ensure your child is on a team with a friend, sign up to coach with the friend’s parent. It’s fun and takes less time than you think! We need coaches and assistant coaches for each team in order for the program to be a success – please volunteer. Sign up by registering yourself when you register your child. For questions, email the registrar at larchmontrecsoccer@gmail.com

PTSA Fundraising

The PTSA works to facilitate communication between parents and the administration. Our funds are used for speakers, community-building activities and to help ensure that all students have access to school activities including field trips and the Junior Prom. We also help defray the cost of the Yearbook and assist with events such as Freshman Orientation, Senior Week activities and Homecoming Brunch.  

We ask you to support our fundraisers. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Michele Sloane.

STOP & SHOP
As many of you know, Stop & Shop runs an annual program where a percentage of dollars spent is sent back to the local schools. Just last year, the District received $20,000 in support from this program and MHS received just over $5000 of that! 

It only takes a minute of your time to register and can really make a difference. Your registration carries over each year, but if you’re a 9th grade parent please remember to designate MHS as your school. You are able to designate up to two schools per card. Click here to register and enter the MHS school code 09341. Since the program started we’ve raised almost $100k in the district! Your weekly food shopping can benefit the schools. Any questions, contact  Michele Sloane.
