Dear Parents and Guardians, The photo above made me laugh out loud when I received it from a staff member who was outside at recess.  It reminds me of how resilient our students are, their sense of humor, and how seriously they take their mask wearing!  Many of our students have started wearing their masks outside for recess, because it keeps their face warm.  …

4th Graders practice their team building skills. Dear MES Families, We are really settling in nicely to our daily routines and our small group instruction.  Students are getting very specific interventions, support, and enrichment to meet them exactly where they are in math and literacy.
