  • Girls Basketball was at Big Lake Tuesday in their first game of the season. The 7th grade White team beat Big Lake 40-6. The players worked hard and had great effort with positive energy. Adrienne L. showed a lot of effort and grit on the defensive end. All the girls made excellent contributions in the winning effort. The STMA 8A Gold team traveled to Big Lake in girls' basketball and came away with a 46-27 victory.  After a slow first half, the Knights got into a second half fast-break rhythm. Defensive full-court pressure was applied by Caylee C. and the girls never looked back, outscoring the Hornets by 18 in the second half. The team played much better in the second half, sharing the ball and becoming more aggressive on the defensive end.

  • It’s Would You Rather Wednesday: today’s question is Would you rather your only mode of transportation be a donkey or a giraffe? I think I would go with the donkey because they have been used as transportation already.

  • Knights Honor is a set of core values that we at MSE share. When students demonstrate Safety, Respect, Honesty, or Citizenship, staff submit their names for Knights’ Honor which enters the student in the Knights Honor weekly drawing. Our winners will each be getting a note in the mail along with a coupon for a free scoop of custard at Culvers.


5th grader, Delaney S. demonstrated Citizenship; Mr. Hilden had this to say about her: Delaney goes above and beyond when working on her Soundtrap projects! She works very diligently through the creative process and it shows in her final product! Keep up the amazing work, Delaney!

6th grader, Allison T. demonstrated Respect; Ms. Martin had this to say about her: Allison did a great job of advocating for herself when she had questions about The Giver. She came to office hours in order to ask questions and make sure she is understanding what she is supposed to be doing each day. Great job, Allison!! Keep it up!

7th grader, Jackson O. demonstrated Citizenship; Ms. Lyke recognized Jackson because he volunteered to read A Christmas Carol during our live lesson.

8th grader, Eli P. demonstrated Citizenship; Mrs. Pack had this to say about him: Eli always has his camera on when attending live lessons, which makes teaching online much more enjoyable for me. He’s great at participating, too! Thanks, Eli!
