Many, many families attend the MES annual Open House on Thursday, September 12th. It was fabulous to have so many visit classrooms, meet new teachers and share completed work.
The special event of the evening was the unveiling of the new Buddy Bench. The funds for the bench were raised by last year's fifth grade students, who were invited to join us for the event.
This year's fifth grade students will be role models for younger students, helping them learn how to reach out to others looking for friends on the playground.
