Counselor's Corner


Our last HOPE assembly is this week. Please encourage the students’ positive behaviors throughout the end of the year by using tickets, dojo, etc. All of you do a really good job with this.

Our Wildcat Club will be on Tuesday for Primary and Friday for Intermediate (from 1:00-1:45pm both days). Make up date for PBIS meeting is March 24th at 3:30. As always, if you have any ideas please let us know.



Saying thank you to Mrs. Field & Mrs. Kemper as they transition March 28! Grateful for your time here at MCE.

Principal's Points

This time of year has its own special type of March Madness (and I'm not talking about the basketball tourneys!).

Progress reports are due. The weather is beautiful (and a bit distracting). Snow Learning is wrapping up...and Spring Break is just a few days away.

Is it hard to maintain our focus as adults? You know it!

Is it doubly hard to keep some of students focused? Absolutely.

Take a deep breath. Give yourself some grace and keep rolling.

We have worked hard this year to grow our kids. Your kids need the structure and guidance that you give them every day. Thanks for being that support and stability.
