Feb. 26 Early Release

Friday, February 26th is a NOON release time for all MISD Elementary schools. Busses will run their regular routes. MASC will NOT be serving students at WBE on this date. Because students will be eating in their classrooms at irregular lunch times, lunch will be closed to visitors and deliveries.

Change of Phone #, E-Mail, or Address?

If you have had a change of any of the above recently, please let Beverly Newth, WBE Registrar, know so that she can update our records.

Dr. Visit????

Has your child missed part of the school day due to a doctor visit? Be sure to get a note from the doctor and provide it to our attendance office. The tardy or early release will then be coded as "medical", therefore not counting negatively on your child's attendance record or our school records.

On Saturday, February 27, MISD is hosting it's annual Multicultural Event at the Center for Performing Arts, 11:00-3:00. This is a great event for the entire family!

Don't Be Tardy to the Party!

Thank you for the efforts you are giving to getting your student to school on time and keeping them here! We are continuing our "Don't be tardy to the party" drive to DECREASE our total campus tardies and early releases. Class time is vital to learning!

Although we made significant improvement over the 3rd six weeks, we are continuing our contest among classes again the 4th six weeks.
