MPES STAFF STUFF
Celebrating Fifty Years of Excellence - September 4, 2015
Just when I thought I had a stressful job...
I THINK I"M GONNA LIKE IT HERE!
Picture Day is September 10 in the Cafeteria (Grab and Go Breakfast)
An announcement will be made at 10:00 AM to send any late students to the cafeteria if they did not get their pictures taken.
The photo vendor said they only need 30 minutes per class. However, if it takes more time, we may have to make some quick adjustments. Thanks for understanding.
Mid-term Progress Communication with Parents
Consistency in our School-wide Behavior Plan
Please continue this momentum by adhering to our school-wide behavior plan so students know the expected behavior in your classroom. If called to remove a student on a 1, the student should be able to communicate prior behaviors that resulted in being removed from class. This common practice will also help each year as students transition to the next grade level. Thanks.
BYOD Forms Back By Popular Demand...
