MWES Weekly News and Celebrations

Week of December 14-18

Message from Ms. Colon

Mary Williams' Families:

Great things continue to happen at our school! This week we had a visit from our Associate Superintendent to showcase our collaborative practices. In addition to that, we had the Marines' band come play for our students, InsideNova came to report on the hour of code, and students were engaged in coding activities everyday!


In our efforts to promote and support students' love for reading our Reading teachers and Librarian have been hosting Book Clubs for students. It is so rewarding to see the children's excitement and commitment to read for pleasure. I encourage you to share your photos from home of your family and children reading by tagging us on Facebook and Twitter #panthercubsread #mwcubs.


As we are getting ready to embark on a well deserved break, I encourage you to spend quality time with your families. This has been a great first half of the year and I cannot be but proud of all your efforts and support. I can only anticipate amazing things happening when we come back!


Thankful to be the lead learner at our school,

Ms. Colon

Box Tops

Our school collects Box Tops for Education, so please be saving these at home! The funds we raise with Box Tops will help our school in many ways.


Below are links to some collection pages for Box Tops. You are free to print these, or you may ask your child to pick up a sheet at school! We will have them available for you.
