EARLY DISMISSAL MARCH 31


SUNDAY NIGHT EMAIL UPDATE:

 

Good evening MTE families,

I hope everyone had a lovely spring break.  I stayed in town, but it was truly a treat given our beautiful weather! Our rainy days were a perfect time to get some school work done.  The building looks great.  Our custodians took advantage of the week to get some detail work done. I know many of the students enjoyed the NCAA tournament and I saw some MTE families in the audience during Friday's KU game in Nebraska!  Today’s basketball game was not a treat for the Jayhawk fans, but congrats to the Shockers for making the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA tournament!

While I enjoyed our spring break, I am ready to see the teachers and students tomorrow.  It is hard to believe we are beginning the fourth quarter of school!

Tomorrow, we have wonderful treat for our students.  Our visiting author, Ted Arnold, will be here and I know the boys and girls will enjoy his visit!  They certainly enjoy his books!

Just a friendly reminder to turn in your child’s community service hours.  We know the purpose of community service is to give to others and not for recognition;   but we also believe that through explicitly valuing service, we will teach the habit of performing service.  I am very proud of the work our students do for others. I am also very grateful to our Community Service volunteers for their leadership.  Natalie Brown, Laurel Thorpe and Erica Massman are making a difference for our children! Please thank them for all their service to MTE when you see them!

You may notice on the calendar that we are again having “Walking Wednesday” at MTE.  All students who walk, bike or ride the bus to school will receive a sticker to be counted in the classroom.  We understand not all students will be able to participate and we will not focus on individuals but on our collective efforts.  We want to encourage the students to make a difference for our environment and possibly their health.  This is a great way to recognize the fun of walking to school. 

We are also excited to share that Mrs. Buescher had a baby girl on March 15.  Her name is Annabelle Grace.  They are doing well.  This is the third baby at MTE this year and we have many more on the way. 

As we begin the fourth quarter, we look forward to the best learning yet!  As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns – please contact me!

 “It is a great day to be a bulldog!”

Debbie Bond
