Attention students, if you do not have a device at home for Distance Learning, please let your SEL teacher know, and they will get your name to Mrs. Schleicher to get you a chromebook.

During distance learning, free meals will be available to enrolled students on all scheduled school days. Daily meal pick up is available starting November 23. Families may pick up FREE meals at the High School door B or MSE main door Monday through Friday from 11:00-12:30 p.m. One breakfast and one lunch will be provided per student. There is no need to pre-order meals for daily pick-up. 

Today’s hot lunch option is breaded pork patty with mashed potatoes, and the cold lunch option is a bento-box turkey wrap.

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, Ella V. was recognized by Mrs. Host for demonstrating Honesty for asking about the attendance question and checking in to be sure she was counted as in attendance!  6th grader, Macy W. was recognized by Ms. Martin for demonstrating Citizenship; Macy does a great job of not only advocating for herself, but for others. On many occasions during our SEL class, she has been willing to share her experiences as well as be a resource for other students. She also has reached out with questions on account of others and herself. She does a great job of making others feel included and welcome. She is super respectful of her peers and teachers.  7th grader, Annie R. was recognized by Ms. Mesna for demonstrating Citizenship by reading pages from One Word for students and staff.  8th grader, Hailey R. was recognized by Mrs. Schleicher for demonstrating Citizenship by stepping up to help another student without being asked.

Have a great day!
