Dear MCES Families,
I am thrilled to announce that our school has been named a Blue Ribbon Lighthouse School!! On September 27 and 28, the Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence team came to MCES to validate the survey results that had been collected from the students, parents, faculty, and administration during the month of September. Our school achieved high levels in almost all of the competencies within the 9 Blue Ribbon components. I am proud of the hard work that occurs each day in our classrooms. Our students were very welcoming to our visitors and shared the many things that make our school great. We will be celebrating this accomplishment at the Blue Ribbon Lighthouse awards ceremony in Orlando, FL on Friday, December 1.
Following the Blue Ribbon visit, our school leadership team has developed some plans for ways that we would like to expand parental involvement at our school. If you are interested in becoming more involved at MCES, please contact me so that we can find out the best ways to get you plugged in.
Student report cards were sent home yesterday. Teachers should be contacting parents to set up a conference sometime in the next few weeks. We would love to have 100% parent participation at our conferences this fall.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to educate your children each day! The students are a critical part of what makes our school so great!
