There are a few days over the Christmas holiday season, once the rush of gatherings and events are finished, where time stands still for a little while and everything seems to move in slow motion. It’s quite the opposite of slow motion in the organized excitement of MES life, and we have a lot of important work to complete before the break. So, in spite of the hustle and bustle of December, let’s not forget to walk slowly, breathe deeply, and reflect on the incredible gifts of the season.


At MES we talk about the power of our words, and as I pause to reflect on the wonder of the season, the following are a collection of words that fill my heart with anticipation:


On behalf of Mitchell Elementary School, much Grace & Peace to you and those you hold dear.
