MIDWAY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
THE GALLOPING GAZETTE
February 11, 2016
Yes, on this special day you share your love and appreciation for the people in your life. By now, even our newest Mustang family members know how much I love my MES family! I truly enjoy your children and appreciate your sharing them with me each day! They bring true joy with their hugs, smiles, greetings, and excitement in learning!! Do take time to share this special day with your child or children. Make those warm and fuzzy memories with them as they grow up so fast. I can attest to this!
When we return to school on Tuesday, February 16, our Counselors will host another All Pro Dads gathering for dads or dad-like figures to join their student at 7:00 a.m. in the cafeteria. Please do join us for this special opportunity!
Many thanks to our families who have been able to attend and support our restaurant nights. Our San Jose night was a wonderful success filled with smiles and great food! On Friday evening, February 12, 6-10:00 p.m., you have the opportunity to support PTO again at the MES PTO PAC Night. This is lots of fun for your children and the adults get to enjoy themselves! Win-win for all!
Enjoy the 4-day weekend and a great book with your child or children! Stay warm and we look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday!
