For the past ten years, MES has partnered with Provision of Hope in helping children from Liberia, Africa. Children in Liberia have to pay to go to school and if their family doesn’t have enough money, they can’t go. Education gives children a chance to move ahead in life and make a difference in their community.
MES students will be participating in activities to learn about Liberia and the students we sponsor there. On May 19th, students will bring home envelopes to collect funds to continue sponsoring our 13 children for the next school year. May 26th will be our counting and celebration day.
It’s funny how quickly we adjust to goodness and start taking things for granted; this has been one of the mildest springs on record and yet I find myself alarmed when the temperature drops below zero. Here at MES we continue to appreciate our in-person learning environment, and are grateful for all of the community support in these unusual times.
May is nutrition month, fall 2021 Kindergarten welcome, Jump Rope for Heart, and fall planning month. While things will look different, and may even change from the writing of this article to hitting send on the email, we will continue to collaborate both in school and out, engage with our learning partnerships, and do everything we can so that MES really is, “a great place to grow!”

This is the parking area one block directly south of the school down the path that connects to Willow & Oakview. *DROP OFF PROCEDURES* If you need to drop something off for… Read More
PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE March weather has been so wonderful allowing us to get outside and increase our learning spaces. With all of the Covid/Winter limitations, there’s something quite freeing about embracing the extra outdoor opportunities. March is also the end of our second term and I trust you were able to connect with your child’s teacher about the progress your student(s) made. Wrapping up the month with Spring Fun week has been a real highlight with all of the activities that… Read More
