Principal's Message

Our building theme this year is to "Beat Average".  We, as a staff, have identified key components that will help our students to be successful at Mackinaw Trail while preparing them for the Jr. High.  Each month we will focus on  one of those components.  
September we focused on Attendance.  Each homeroom kept track of daily attendance as well as tardies.  The class with the lowest percentage of absences and tardies was recognized at our all school assembly.  
Congratulations to Mrs. Biller's 5th grade class and Mrs. Crouch's 6th grade homeroom!  They will be creating the video for November/ December's theme of "Work Completion".  
Our focus for October is "Organization".  Staff will be conducting random locker checks and students will be encouraged to keep their planners up to date.  We encourage parents to support your child in their organization, by allowing them to find tools and systems that are meaningful for them. Some students are successful using planners while others find success with binders and folders.

October is also the month for Parent/ Teacher conferences.  The 6th grade will host "arena style" where parents may come and visit multiple teachers on their child's schedule while 5th grade teachers will schedule appointment times for each student.  Mark your calendars for October 23rd 12:30 - 7:00 PM.  If you have more immediate concerns we always welcome your phone calls and or emails.
