Volunteer Appreciation

MES will be recognizing our volunteers with a special donuts and coffee event.  Invitations will be sent out to our volunteers later next week.

Kindergarten Pizzeria

Mrs. Beale’s Kindergarten students at MES got a huge surprise when they walked into school on Tuesday.  Their classroom was transformed into a Pizza Parlor!  The students reviewed fractions and part-part-whole with play dough pizzas, read Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza, and worked on reading strategies.  Each little chef also got to make an individual pizza to enjoy!
