Knights Honor is a set of core values that we at MSE share. When students demonstrate Safety, Respect, Honesty, or Citizenship, staff submit a Knights Honor form for that student which enters the student in the Knights Honor weekly drawing. We will call the names of one student per grade level who has demonstrated Knights Honor. When your name is called, please come to the atrium to get your picture taken and pick up your prize, a free scoop of custard at Culvers. 

5th grader, Makayla H. demonstrated Honesty; Mrs. Host recognized Makayla for Knights Honor because she sent an email that she was in “attendance” for class when Mrs. Host was late in posting the attendance question!

6th grader, Charles D. demonstrated Citizenship; Mrs. Schleicher recognized Charles for Knights Honor because he helped to clean up recess equipment that had been blown over by the wind.

There were no 7th grade Blue day Knights Honor students recognized this week.

8th grader, Regan A. demonstrated Citizenship; Mrs. Mesna recognized Regan for volunteering to give information to students about how to be a great distance learner!
