Good evening MTE,
As I write, I am shocked and saddened by the tragedy in our community. Our deepest sympathies go out to the victims, families and community.

Just a reminder, Monday, Apr. 14 is a staff development day. There is no school for students.
As always, please contact me if you have any concerns, questions, or comments.

BOX TOPS RESULTS
We are pleased to announce the results of our Box Tops for Education “Max Madness” basketball contest. MTE families collected over 4,500 Box Tops for our technology initiatives. Year-to-date we have collected over 19,400 Box Tops! We will have our final collection period starting May 5.
Our “Max Madness” basketball contest classroom winner is Ms. Vogliardo’s 3rd grade class. Complete classroom results are posted on the BTFE bulletin board by the gym. Many Bulldogs completed Max’s basketball collection sheet. Bulldogs completing the collection sheet were eligible for a prize drawing. Jack F., Cassandra P., Becca H., Alli D. and Alysen L. are each winners of a gift card for a cupcake at Cupcake A la Mode.
