Maverick Message

Dear Parents:

Wow! What a week at "The Mil. " Our students had numerous learning opportunities that went beyond the walls of MCES. Our kindergarten went to Sci-Quest, our first grade went to the Botanical Gardens, and our second grade went to the Burritt. Our third-sixth grade students were exposed to numerous professionals speaking about careers at our annual Career Day. Mrs. Miller's class shared about their year of writing with MCES's first Student Led Conferences. We hope to expand this experience next year. It was exciting to see our students leading conferences and sharing their writing with their parents. We received very positive feedback about this event. If you missed the Maverick Masqueraders's play on Thursday, you missed a real treat. These kids did an amazing job with their performances. I keep finding talent at MCES!  Next week we have Field Days and Space Camp graduation.  As a reminder about Field Day, if you are attending as a parent, you need to sign up to volunteer. We have limited parking and limited space. There are still slots available to help! Always something going on at our campus!

We had a lot of fun celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week...lots of dressing up and honoring our teachers. Our PTA did a spectacular job organizing numerous events and treats for our teachers. I know they appreciated it! I do believe my favorite day was Friday when I watched our students beaming as they walked in to deliver flowers to our teachers. This made my heart very happy.

I hope to see everyone at our PTA meeting on Monday night. We will be electing new officers and celebrating our kindergarten.

I keep reminding our students to stay focused. We still have 8 1/2 days of instruction, especially since we missed so many days due to winter weather. Help us by reminding them of that as they leave each morning.

I look forward to another amazing week being a Maverick!
