Sunday Update for September 12, 2021

Good morning!

This was a wonderful and wacky week! Wednesday felt like Monday, but Friday felt like Friday! We love the cooler recess times, and it feels great. Red Friday at MTE was truly a fun day. The children love seeing all the red and Mahomes was clearly the most represented player at MTE. I am so excited for the Chiefs later today!

Our staff had a meaningful workday on Tuesday! We made the most of every minute as we worked on developing our professional learning communities and strategizing for the year ahead. I am so grateful for the expertise and commitment of our staff. In a year where you can’t yet get into the building much, we thought we would make a gift to share with our MTE community. Please click the link to view our MTE Family Slide Show. We thought this would be a fun way to share our MTE family with you. This helps you know the team who works with your children each day. Not all our staff participated, but most did! Please enjoy!


I hope you are enjoying the weekend! I am getting ready for a kitchen remodel starting in a few weeks, so yesterday was spent emptying some cabinets and getting prepared. It is amazing how much kitchen stuff I have that I never use. It will be a few weeks before the real work starts, but it is never too early to prepare.

As always -if you have any questions, comments, or concerns – please reach out to me.

“It is a great day to be a bulldog!”
