Suprise and Delight

Mrs. Chandler was a trooper and has prepped our new Samsung tablets for use in class. She led two intro sessions as teachers learned some of the basic uses for them. We'll have more time to explore but are grateful for Deana's hard work to support our students.

Principal's Points

Thanks for supporting HIgh Attendance Day at MCE. We don't know the final results as of Thursday night but we had only THREE students absent today. The students had a good time at the "mini-field day" stations and I appreciate everyone's flexibility. Whether you manned a station or flipped your schedule, your help made the afternoon fun go smoothly.

SGGs/PGPs/PBL/RTI/MAP...Holy Cow! You are doing so many things at once these last few days. There are lots of things going and you are handling it like troopers. All the energy you place into planning and instructional prep is an investment in our students. You are intentional and thoughtful in your work. Thank you!
