Enjoy these last weeks of Summer, Reading!

August is here which means getting ready for a new school year!

Did you know the BEST kind of readiness for school is to be READING a little each & every day?

I’d love to hear that you’ve been reading all Summer, but even if you just start NOW and stick with it, your school year will be much easier for you. IT’S TRUE!

This year my 8th grade “Hot Chocolate & Conversation” lunch with me on Friday’s will begin in October and run till end of May.

AIS classes will begin in late September after AIMSWEB testing. This year we will run 6 week sessions. This means that students may be able to test out of AIS with only monitoring needed after 6 weeks are up.

This year I will run 2 after school clubs (Movie Club & Lego Club) from 2:30-3:30. Permission to attend forms will be available outside my room. Pick up one if you would like to join. 

I’m looking forward to seeing many returning smiling faces and hopefully greet some new ones as well. See you in September!

June Thoughts from Mrs. Sandel

imageJune 2016 will be bittersweet for me. When I was asked by Cheektowaga Central if I wanted to take the AIS teaching position at MQA I eagerly accepted. Coming from a background of teaching 4th grade in two wonderful Catholic schools previously I knew the importance of having God present and acknowledged in every aspect of a school. What I came to find out about MQA was that they had an extraordinary Principal in Mrs. Bagwell. I have witnessed the amazing things she has done for MQA, and the love with which she does everything and gives to everyone. I truly was blessed to be working beside her, and she will always remain a dear friend. I cannot image MQA without MaryAlice Bagwell but I know she has left a wonderful legacy of her leadership to this school. I wish you well in your future and I want to thank you for the past 4 years and the love you have shown to every person here at MQA. You will be missed tremendously. God Bless. 💜
