Dear J.L. Mudd Families,
Last week was such an exciting week! It was READING WEEK! All throughout the week, the book fair was available for students to purchase new books. In addition, each day there was a special activity to help teach a love for reading and books.
Fine Arts night was Tuesday, where families had fun opportunities to learn some reading strategies, read with "Love on a Leash," see students' beautiful artwork, and shop the book fair! Then, we had our Grand Breakfast, where I was able to meet grandparents as they got to share a special morning with our students. I hope that these memorable events were enjoyable to your families.
Today, March 8, marks the end of third quarter. Students will not have school tomorrow, to give teachers the opportunity to track their progress and prepare report cards.
I hope you enjoy next week's Spring Break with your child!

This year we collected $14,893.13
for Jump Rope for Heart!
Change for 2018-2019
We are excited to announce that the students at J.L. Mudd raised $14,893 during our Jump Rope for Heart event. Violet Barbagallo from Ms. Tarrant’s 1st grade class was our top fundraiser this year and she received a medal for her hard work and dedication to this worthy cause. (Her picture is shown on the front cover of this newsletter.) This is such a wonderful reflection of the giving and generous community we have at J.L. Mudd. The money raised will stay in St Charles County to help in the fight against heart disease and stroke through education and prevention. Our school will receive $1,150 in US Games gift certificates to purchase new P.E. equipment. All of the students who participated in collecting donations will receive their additional “thank you” gifts in 3-4 weeks. The “Jump Rope for Heart” event was a true success, and we look forward to supporting the American Heart Association next year!

Fort Zumwalt’s Proposition 3 is a no-tax-increase $35 million bond issue on the April 3 ballot. The district’s 31 facilities, 27 of which are schools, were most recently assessed at more than $550 million. Regular maintenance and upgrades ensure safe, welcoming learning environments for our students and staff and protect taxpayer investment.
Prop 3 would provide funds for maintenance of roofs, parking lots and heating & cooling systems. It would provide funds for continued upgrades to computer network infrastructure and building interiors. Additions are needed at Flint Hill Elementary to eliminate mobile classrooms and at North High School to accommodate a growing student population. A new Professional Development Center, capable of providing our teachers adequate learning space and tools, is also needed to keep student achievement moving forward.
Prop 3 is a no-tax-increase issue. The district collects a debt service levy for paying off bonds (loans) used to fund capital improvements such as maintenance, construction or land purchases (currently 69 cents per $100 of assessed valuation). Strong financial stewardship allows Fort Zumwalt to borrow within the limit of the revenue generated by that 69 cents, so no increase is required to repay the $35 million the district would borrow through Prop 3.For a look at previous bond issue projects or to learn more about Proposition 3, visittinyurl.com/ZumwaltProp3.
The 2018-2019 school year calendar is on our website. Just click here. We are grateful for the home-school partnership in teaching children that every minute counts at school and want to make a special note: Early Release Days move to Wednesdays in 2018-2019. We know many of you use this time to schedule appointments, etc., so your child can be at school when class is in session. The change takes effect in August. We hope that by reminding you of this change over the next few months, you and your family are ready for the next school year. Thank you for support of strong school attendance. #EveryMinuteCounts
