  • Student Council is hosting their annual winter fundraiser! This year's theme is Acts of Kindness. All you need to do is be kind, film a quick flipgrid video about your act of kindness, and then wait to see if your name is drawn. You can find the flipgrid in the attendance Google Classroom. Please make sure you state your name, grade, and describe your act of kindness when filming your flipgrid. You're welcome to submit as many videos as you like! If your name is drawn, you will get to choose from a few different local places to donate to. The flipgrid will close on Friday, February 12th, and the winners will be announced on Wednesday, February 17th. If we get enough submissions, there will be school-wide activities as well. See Mrs. Lindquist or Mrs. Gritti if you have any questions!

  • Here is our Wednesday Would You Rather Question: Would you rather go camping or stay in a hotel?

  • The hot lunch option is a hamburger with tomatoes, lettuce shreds, pickles, mixed veggies, sunchips, and diced pears. The cold lunch option is a bento box meat, cheese, and crackers with broccoli and diced pears. Both lunch lines will offer the same options, and lunches are free for all enrolled students.

  • Attention 5th graders: The temperature is below zero, so we will be indoors for recess. Indoor recess will be in your classroom. Please continue to maintain social distance, keep personal devices put away, and follow the rules of your classroom. Team B will eat lunch first and then return to their classrooms for recess. Team A will stay in their rooms for recess and then go to lunch. Students that are in their ALB classes before lunch will return to the pod for recess.

  • 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, Izzy S. demonstrated Honesty; Mr. Hilden had this to say about her: Izzy is very active and volunteers answers often during our SEL lessons. She provides answers that are open and honest which can sometimes be difficult to share. Her ability to put trust in her classmates and be honest with everyone is very admirable. Keep up the great work, Izzy!

6th grader, Kaden S. demonstrated Responsibility; Mr. Sartori recognized Kaden for taking ownership of his learning and reaching out for help when he needs it!

7th grader, Jonathan L. demonstrated Citizenship; Mr. Mashuga shares this message: I wanted to thank you for helping me when I was teaching the sport of Lacrosse.  It is cool to me that you were willing to get your equipment and help show the other students what it looks like. That old wooden lacrosse stick was sweet. I always love to promote activities that students participate in and hope that I can get others to join.  Thank you for making our school a better place.

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

 

Have a great day!
