Upcoming Events 



Field Day is Back, and We Need Your Help!

As we wrap up the end of the school year, it’s time for us to finalize the details for the most exciting day of the year- FIELD DAY!  Field Day will be on June 8th on the MES fields and blacktop for students in grades 1-5.  Field day involves fun for every type of student.  In order to make this fantastic event happen, we need volunteers!   

Volunteers play very important roles - they will help run activities and help make sure that all students are having a BLAST!  If you are willing to participate as a volunteer and would like to be a part of your students’ field day experience, please review the available slots using the link below and click on the button to sign up.

We can't have this event w/out you!  Thank you for your support,

You can do that at:

Proof of Vaccination

Once your student receives his/her second COVID vaccination, feel free to send Mrs. Devine a copy of your student's vaccination card either by taking a picture of it and emailing it to or by making a photocopy and bringing it to the front office at MES.  It is helpful to keep a record of the COVID vaccination just as we keep a record of the other required vaccinations for K-12 schools. Providing this information once you have it will make our jobs much easier in the future.   

*Please note, there is currently no vaccine mandate for our students. Sharing your child's vaccination status with the office is optional at this time.
