Happy New Year MSES Community!

It was wonderful to have our students back in school. MSES is looking forward to a great 2017!

We wish to thank the PTO for organizing the staff holiday luncheon and all the families who prepared the delicious food. 

Just a few reminders and notices as we get back into our routine.

From the PTO

The next SG-PTO meeting will be Tuesday, January 10th at 7pm in the MSES library – all are welcome to attend.

The Boxtop challenge is coming! Be sure to clip and save your boxtops. The back to school challenge raised over $800 so every boxtops coupon helps! More information will be sent home within the next few weeks.

Movie Night is scheduled for Friday, January 13th.  The feature presentation is The Secret Life of Pets (PG). Doors open at 6pm.  Student should be picked up at 8pm.

Winter Recess Conditions

Students do have outdoor recess when the temperature (including wind chill factor/feels like temperature) is above 20 degrees and no form of precipitation is falling.  Once we have a good snowfall our playground in the back remains snow covered.  We do use the side parking lot area for outdoor play.  The grassy areas are typically snow covered or wet/muddy unless we experience consecutive warm and dry days.  You may want to consider boots for outdoor play as a general rule in winter months and send them in with your child.

Six Flags Read to Succeed Logs are due back on January 27th.  A copy of the recording log can be downloaded from the school webpage.  It is located in the Announcements section under the Principal’s Pen.

Geography Bee
It is not too late for interested 4th, 5th & 6th graders to participate in the Geography Bee.   Interested students are invited to stay after school tomorrow Thursday, January 5th and take the preliminary test.  It will be held in room 27 (Mr. Mitchell’s classroom).  Participating students can be picked up at 4:10pm at the cafeteria/parent pickup lobby.

Warm regards,

Joanne Stocklin

Reminder No School Monday, January 16th!

Medicines  If your child takes medicine during the school day it needs to be delivered to the school nurses by a parent with the prescription label attached.  

Parent Drop-off  If you plan on driving your child to school please pull into the large parking lot and line up along the sidewalk. Please pull your car up as far as possible along the sidewalk before unloading (children should exit vehicle on the sidewalk side of the car).  Children can begin unloading at 8:10am.  DO NOT pass any cars in front of you. We ask that cars pull away from the sidewalk in an orderly line.  Please be aware of people using the crosswalk from the parking lot. There will be staff on duty to assist with the flow.

Parent Pick-up  If you will be picking up your child from school you must park your car and enter the building from the large parking lot by the cafeteria.  Parents will be able to enter the building at 2:50pm.  The students are dismissed from the cafeteria by staff on duty.  Please form a line to sign out your child.  Parents are not permitted to enter the cafeteria during parent pick up.

If your child will be a regular parent pick up please send in a note the first day of school stating the days you will picking them up.  If you need to place your child on the Parent Pick up List for a specific afternoon please send in a note that morning so we can add them to the sign out sheet.  You may not pick up a child other than your own unless we have written permission of the parent.

There is no parking in the fire lane in the front of the school during the school year. Please use the side lots and enter though the main entrance in front of the flagpoles.
