Make sure students are ready to go 10 minutes before their bus time so they do not miss the bus.
Please be prepared for this as it is so important for all of the MPS learners to go outside daily in order to learn at their fullest potential.
As November arrives, classroom guidance lessons continue to be focused around empathy and critical thinking. Lower elementary students have been learning about emotions and how to recognize feelings in themselves and others. Upper elementary students have been working on developing the use of empathy, the understanding of others feelings, in order to respond in more understanding ways. Thank you for supporting your child's education and please let us know of any concerns you have with your child.
