Change to our weekly routine...

We are flipping our late day & data day. Tuesday will be our "data day" instead of Wednesday and all staff will leave at 3:00 pm on Tuesday.

Wednesday will be a 4:00 PM day for all staff, with grades K-2 attending a literacy session with Kay at 3:00 pm. Grades 3-5 will be in collaborative planning.

Support staff: choose which session to attend. Either K-2 (Feb-17) or 3-5 (on Feb - 29).

50 Year Celebration - April 16 @ 2 PM

Do you know a former teacher or administrator from MPES (retired or working elsewhere)? We need to know how to contact them to invite them to our 50th celebration. We need email and/or mail addresses of any former staff. Please let Amanda know if you have any information. An electronic invitation will be coming soon with more detailed information.

CHANGES to Cyber Day "Test Drive"

Heather is going to send information out explaining changes to this "test drive" for a later date.
