Mackay Spring Book Fair – The annual Spring BOGO (Buy One Get One Free) Scholastic Book Fair is on April 28th. This event offers a great opportunity for you to add twice as many books to your personal library. For every item you buy, you get another item for FREE! All free items must be of equal or lesser value than the ones you pay for. If you purchase more than two books, the cash register automatically pairs books with similar value and will treat books of equal or lesser value from each pair as a free item.
Family Science Night – On Friday, May 12th, Mackay HSA member families are welcome to enjoy a *free* fun evening filled with science and surrounded by nature. Tenafly is filled with night life and all of it can be enjoyed at the Tenafly Nature Center. Each 1-hour time slot will feature a few mini-programs and activities that you and your family will be guided through as you discover the science of our backyards. Two sessions will be available: 6:15-7:15pm or 7:30-8:30pm. Registration will open April 29th and close May 10th. More information will be provided as the date nears.
Please be aware that school will be closed an additional day during the Memorial Day holiday weekend, since only two days were used as "snow days". There will be NO school on Tuesday, May 30th, in addition to Friday, May 26th and Monday, May 29th.
