Family Communication 11/04/22

November 4, 2022

Dear MES Families,
I am looking forward to continuing to connect with families through the month of November. It has been nice to see families back in the building for back-to-school night, the Fall Festival, volunteering and with the upcoming conferences. You are all such and important and valued part of the MES community.
In partnership,

Upcoming Dates
11/9: PTA General Meeting 7:00- 8:30 PM
11/11: No School- Veterans Day
11/21- 11/25: No School- Thanksgiving Break/ Family-Teacher Conferences

Recess/ Lunch Support
We will be hiring one more recess/ lunch support person. This position is a paid position and is 17.5 hours per week. This role will support the staff already in place and may do some academic tutoring based on needs. If you are interested and would like to hear more or know of someone who might be interested, please email

Morning Drop-off Reminder
More and more families are driving during these cool and rainy days. We’ve noticed an increase in students being dropped off on both Smith and McGraw. Please DO NOT drop your students off on these streets as they are not supervised, and it is unsafe. Car drop-off only happens driving north on 28th in the school load/ unload zones. Pull as far north as possible, drop your students and continue on so this can happen quickly and efficiently. Please help us keep our staff and students safe.

November Family Conferences
November allows time for family-teacher conferences. All teachers have begun scheduling and are offering in-person or virtual conferences. Please make sure to sign-up!

We are welcoming volunteers back into the building to support at lunch and recess. The more adults connecting and actively supervising our students, the better! Please email for more information. **We have a significant need for recess volunteers from 9-9:35 starting Monday. Please email me directly if you are available.**
