STAFF GRATITUDE GIFTS - NOW THROUGH DEC. 18
Stumped with how to show your gratitude to our amazing MWES Staff? Look no further than the MWES PTA website (https://mwespta.com/teacher-staff-gifts/) for your one stop shop for all MWES Staff.
This is a quick and easy way to express your gratitude to the dedicated staff that teach and nurture our children! The web store is set up to select the teachers/staff you would like to recognize and choose the amount you would like to give in increments of $1. The PTA will tabulate the individual teacher/ staff totals from all contributions and will send out a single gift card to that individual member. Please note that any money dedicated to a teacher/staff will only go to that teacher/staff and will not be distributed among the entire list. As usual, there is no obligation or expectation, just a way to make gifting a little easier for those who would like to take part. Gifts will be collected through December 18th.
STAFF TREAT DONATIONS - NOW THROUGH DEC. 21
Help us make a special treat for our staff this holiday season! See sign up link below to help provide the ingredients. Donations will be collected in the front lobby through next Wednesday the 21st. We will be putting out a container for the kids to drop the items near the entrance. It will be wrapped in holiday paper with a sign that says “Merry-Mix drop off”. Thank you so much for your support as we show our gratitude to our amazing staff! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0944a9a823a5fd0-merry
DEI HOLIDAY TRADITIONS
Hanukkah is the most special time of the year when family members come together to celebrate the eight divine nights and gather around the menorah to remember the miracle… Warm wishes to our MWES families and community a very Happy Hanukkah.
The ESOL and DEI Teams would like to thank you for sharing the winter tradition posters and pictures! Thank you and happy holidays!
Here's a slideshow of our school winter wonderland:
The posters are added to each grade padlet:
As we continue to work on celebrating our differences through cultural events at MWES, we are looking for more parents to participate in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Parent Team. The mission of DEI is a school community where every member feels seen, heard and empowered. Please contact DD at email@example.com if you would like to join or have questions.
You can volunteer through sign-up genius. Please click the link if you are interested. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0E48AFAB22A6FF2-deibulletin
