Maverick Message

Dear Parents:

We have a very busy week at MCES!  The highlights of my week happen when I go in classrooms and listen to our students talk about their learning, see them collaborate with other students, and engage with them as they discover new things. Our sixth grade students were writing computer codes, fourth grade students were experimenting with circuits, and kindergarten students were preparing to share their writing with others with week. Last week, a precious second grade student stopped me in the hall to tell me how proud she was that she was adding double digits. We love to learn at MCES!  

We had several extracurricular activities last week .Our 2nd-6th grade students and teachers enjoyed bowling field trips. I hate that my schedule did not allow me to join them on this trip, but I heard some great feedback from all. The Junior Leaders are diligently working on "Sweet Treats for Sweet Hearts" boxes for the families in Huntsville Hospital's NICU.

You may have heard from your child/children that I did agree to kiss a pig if the student body raised this much. Although I am not looking forward to kissing a pig, I will get my lipstick ready because I know our students can do this! I really appreciate our hard working teachers who put in extra time for these events for our students.

Huge congratulations to our Chess Team. They placed third this weekend at the Rookie  Rally Tournament. Congrats to Om Badhe who placed first in his age division and Alex Lee who also placed in his age division. I enjoyed my afternoon learning more about chess with them on Saturday.

I look forward to another amazing week being a Maverick!
