Principal's Message

Dear MCES Families,


Be sure to sign your child up for the Power Scholars Summer Academy! The scholars will receive academic time with their professors in the mornings and enrichment opportunities in the afternoons. Some of the enrichment activities will include programming from Fantasy Playhouse, The Tennessee Aquarium, Local Aviation representatives, and swimming. If you have not already signed your child up for the program, please see more information and registration link below.


All students in grades 3-8 have completed their Scantron testing. Students did a great job! We still have DIBELS and Star testing over the course of the next few weeks.


If you have not already, please take the Title I parent survey by clicking on this link:

http://www.advanc-ed.org/survey/public/9772474

Your honest opinion will help us to make preparations for the 2018-2019 school year.


See below for important end of the year dates!


Have a wonderful weekend!


Sincerely,


Amy Mason

Principal
