Today is the day for Kindergarten Graduation - Please save the parking lot for people who struggle walking. There will be people helping you with parking so please follow directions. There will be some parking in the Pre-K parking lot. The students will be going back to their room and the teachers will dismiss at their normal areas after the program is totally finished. We will need to clear the parking lot quickly, so please only the parent picking up the child will need to stay. I know this is inconvenient but I appreciate your cooperation. There will be a place to come forward and take a photo during the ceremony, again if only one person would take the photo that would be helpful. Please don't forget your chair, parking lot opens at 12:15 and program starts at 1:00. Looking forward to celebrating with you.
This is a reminder from MCES that Kindergarten Graduation is Thursday, May 13 at 1:00 p.m. in the front parking lot of the school. Please bring your own chair. There will be a few parking spots in the parking lot for those who cannot walk far, the rest will have to park in the street or at Pre-K. Please carpool if you can parking is very limited. Thank you for letting us work with your children this year!
The week of May 3 - 7 was Teacher Appreciation Week. The teachers were overwhelmed by the generosity of the community and the district. We would like to thank Roads Church for the books, gift bags and trays of cookies. Constant Cravings held a teacher appreciation week and gave away door prizes with free chocolates and coffee. Parkview Christian Church brought in donuts for breakfast to honor the teachers. Thank you so much!

MCES would like to thank Brent Whitney for bringing the Mystery Machine to MCES. The students enjoyed visiting with Scooby-Doo and I am amazed at the generosity of our parents and students with all the donations for the Wabash Animal Shelter. They said they needed cat food and you came through. I have attached a picture of the donations early on, but we filled Mrs. Leffler's van. Thank you to all!

MCES Kindergarten classes celebrated a spring feast today before they left on spring break. This has not been a normal year and they missed their Thanksgiving Day feast, so this was done to brighten their year. They ate ham, mashed potatoes, corn and apple sauce. Thank you Ms. Caren for fixing the meal. I hope everyone enjoys their spring break!
