Believe. Behave. Achieve.
September 30, 2023
What a great finish to September! MES is really rocking and the learning it's really getting fun too. We had so many neat adventures for our students this week from hot dog parties and concrete boats to walks, in between rain showers, to the Miller House. Our students are creating an exciting learning buzz in the building!
On Monday, at our PD day, the staff embarked on a variety of learning for themselves. Our ELA teachers in the early grades were busy unpacking some of our new resources, UFLI and Heggerty. They are all learning about and utilizing many ways to enhance their reading instruction within the classroom. Some of our specialists and subject-specific staff dove into the best strategies and supports for our multi-language learners that ultimately can enhance everyone's learning opportunities in the classroom. The afternoon was a multi-session event for the whole district. Staff attended sessions on various topics that enhance the teaching and school supports for each and every student. It was a really great day of learning!
October has a lot of adventures ahead as well. First up is our Walk to School day this Wednesday! Be sure to wear your Madeira gear - the "we dig our new space" tee is a great option! Conferences will take place through the middle of October and we will close things with a Halloween party day.
Please look over the information below and enjoy this beautiful weather we are having!
