The entire M.E. staff welcomes you to another exciting school year. A caring group of dedicated professionals are here to help each and every child learn and grow in amazing ways. Children are the focus at M.E. School.
Our school-wide guidelines this year are: BE SAFE, RESPONSIBLE, RESPECTFUL, POLITE, and WORK HARD. These guidelines are what all of our school rules are tied to and help us talk to one another about how to be better at learning together. An example of a rule we all have to fit our guidelines is, “We keep our hands, feet, and things we hold to ourselves.” This rule tells a specific way we can be safe, responsible, and also respectful. Most rules connect to more than one guideline and all rules help us learn more effectively together in school.
Our young students benefit greatly from parent and community involvement. There are many ways to be involved. Attending our events is a fun way to start. Family and community members are invited to feel the energy and excitement about learning together at FRIDAY AFTERNOON SHOWCASE at 2:30pm on all even-number Fridays this year. We also have a Halloween Carnival in October, a Holiday Program in December, frequent Friday rollerskating nights, and Family Night activities throughout the year.
Volunteering is also greatly appreciated. If you would like to volunteer at school, please talk with your child’s teacher or notify someone at the office. Every adult can help our children with language development by reading and talking with students regularly. M.E. School has a parent library and students can also check out books to read at home. Reading at home every day helps kids become stronger readers and learners. Talking each day to your child about what is happening around us helps our students learn important language skills that make learning easier.
We are excited to work together with you and your children to make this year successful and rewarding!
