Midway Moments

Our MES Counselors took the parent feedback last year and have redesigned the morning gatherings of students and parents with them. It is now a meeting for parents and/or guardians, regardless of whether the mom or dad figure. We have our first ever Midway Moments on Tuesday morning at 7:00 in the cafeteria. Please use this link to RSVP or the link in the attached flyer.
