February Vice-Principal’s Message

“Stop, and look, and listen…” I love reading. In fact, I really love to read.

January Principal’s Message

Looking back at December, the highlight once again was our Christmas Concert. Great job staff and students as both concerts were fantastic.

We collected approximately 950 items for Helping Hands this year. As we move into the new year we look forward to continuing… Read More

December Vice-Principal’s Message

Silent Night (Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht) written and performed for the first time almost 200 years ago, could very well be the best Christmas carol of all time given the peace and sense of calm it evokes in audiences world wide. In fact, it was declared an intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO in 2011. With all of the important work left to be done before the break here at MES it may not always be peaceful and calm, but we… Read More

MES Highlights Assemblies

November Principal’s Message

What is it to be mindful? This was one of the themes at the Superintendent’s Professional Development day on October 30th. Simply put, being mindful is an intentional, purposeful awareness to our situation and surroundings. At times it may be thinking about what you are unconsciously doing or thinking. For example, do your thoughts “build you up” or “tear you down”? When being mindful, we remember that there is always a blue sky out there even if the clouds might… Read More
