Welcome back! I hope everyone has had a productive and joyous start to their new year. Thank you to the many volunteers who have helped make the first semester so successful. Positive involvement from our entire school community is what makes MES such a great place! We have so much more planned at MES in the coming weeks and months. Our last PBIS event was a huge success with our students enjoying cookies and a holiday movie. We are always excited about being able to celebrate with our students and congratulate them for their hard work each day. Teachers will be reviewing expectations for all areas of school with the students throughout the remainder of the year to help each and every child learn and grow. Remember, you can recognize your child by sending in the “Fishing at Home” coupons found in the back of the newsletter. These slips are a wonderful way to support the FISH philosophy and connect home with school for your child!
Remember, as part of our continued efforts to establish and maintain our community connections, you can always find the most up-to date information about our parish by visiting the website www.stpsb.org. You can also connect with our school system using Facebook, www.facebook.com/stppschools, and Twitter, www.twitter.com/stppschools. These are all great ways to stay current with all of the events happening at our school and around the parish.
As always, open communication between home and school is essential to the success of each child at MES. If you ever have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Smith or your child’s teacher at 985-626-3950. Together, we will help our students achieve success!
Yours in education,
Chantelle O. Smith
Principal, Mandeville Elementary School
