Making a Connection...
Mrs. Cosgrove and Mrs. Ellison's first graders created a book to show their support of police officers.
Thanks for creating an authentic task and helping our writers consider "audience" when writing!
Last week, two Kentucky State Police officers (one may look familiar!) stopped by to visit our young authors and say thank you.

Suprise and Delight
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!
