Trunk or Treat and Fall Carnival

Thank you so much for joining us for Trunk or Treat and Fall Carnival Fun! Special thanks to our awesome PTO, amazing teachers, and other volunteers for creating so much fun for our LME Families!

You can check out pictures on our Facebook Page -

Remax Hot Air Balloon

If you drop off your child(ren) in the back car line, were you surprised to see the Hot Air Balloon Thursday morning? What a fun morning for our learners as they were able to get up close and personal to the Remax Hot Air Balloon and learn a little about warm air rising!

Genius Hour

Our 1st round of Genius Hour Clubs started on Friday, and I could not be more proud! Genius Hour is an opportunity for our learners to explore their passions as they collaborate, communicate, and create! Check out some pictures here!

This Week

Inch and Miles

All words for the Pyramid of Success have been introduced. Now, we will spend 2 weeks learning more about each word and recognizing students for demonstrating these characteristics. Our 1st word is HARD-WORK.

Genius Hour

Would you like to share your genius with us? We would LOVE to have you! Ideas that we have include: yoga instructors, culinary experts, cake decorators, entrepreneurs, wood workers, crocheting, etc. The sky is the limit. What would volunteering entail? Volunteers would need to commit to serving our learners for 3 weeks (one hour each week - Fridays from 7:55 - 8:55 am). We like for these clubs to be interactive, so a project for our learners to complete would be ideal. You can sign up for one Genius Hour Cycle or all of them! Contact to volunteer or for more information.

Costumes are allowed. However, we ask that you follow the following criteria for costume selection:

  • Costumes need to be in MISD dress code - If you have a question, please ask a teacher or administrator.
  • No masks covering the face.
  • Nothing scary.
  • No face paint - It can make a mess as the day progresses.
  • No accessory weapons (swords, ninja sticks, etc.)

A reservation form will be sent home by October 20.

Important to note: Students are only allowed to attend their own classroom party. If a child leaves after a party and returns later in the day for a sibling's party, we will check the child back in to school and send the child to his/her regular class. Siblings cannot attend the party in another grade level. Please help us with this. :)
