PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE Inspector-Read-A-Lot was kept busy reading to classes and looking for clues. One clue that continued to be prevalent was just how much fun our school community had with I Love to Read Month this year. We enjoyed several guest readers including the Sabres Athletes, Pistons players and our Assistant Superintendent. At our concluding assembly Corny Rempel brought down the house with his rendition of The Grumpy Monkey, along with the awarding of several reading prizes. A big thank… Read More

February is “I Love to Read” month. And, while I was reading over the plans and calendar the MES IL2R committee put together I thought, “Hey! I really, really do love reading.” I love reading for pleasure, I love reading to my daughters, and I simply love it that I can read. This little bit of reflecting has got me thinking about other things that I really appreciate. Here are a few: Recess Buddies Kindness Freedom Volunteers Warm homes Big… Read More
MES FAMILY GAME NIGHT Thursday, January 23 Come and go…6-8 pm In the gym Bring the family to learn and play fun games together to practice math skills. Free game supplies will be given to each family that attends! Opportunity to purchase math games. Snacks will be provided.
The cold weather has settled in and in most likelihood will be getting colder. Brrrr! Now is the time to remember to wear toques, mittens, ski pants, etc..
Also, with the wet snow, it can be a good idea to pack extra socks & mittens as students do go out for recess if the temperature/ windchill is –29 or warmer.
In severe weather conditions, the school division closes the school and stops the buses. An announcement is made on radio stations CHSM (AM1250), CFAM (AM950), CJOB (AM680), 95.1 FM and 96.7 FM between 7 and 8 am., advising parents in such cases, as well as a bulletin on theHSD website.
December was filled with concerts and festive activities. MES Christmas Concert was very well attended and we continue to be appreciative of your support. We thank you for coming along side of us as we help our students strive for excellence.
As one year comes to an end, so do some staff tenures. We wish Tamara Banman all the best as her term in grade 2 concludes. Secondly we wish Susan Nickel all the best in her retirement after working more than 20 years for Hanover School Division, most of which has been as the head secretary at MES.
Susan, we thank you for all of your commitment and dedication to our school and community.
With the New Year, comes new beginnings. We welcome back Heidi Newman and we welcome Eddi Konrad as they begin in Grade 2 in January. We also welcome Janette Koop to the office as she takes on the role of head secretary.
