Change in Summer Workout Schedule Our number one priority is keeping our athletes and families safe. With that in mind, we will delay the start of Jacket Camp (Summer Workouts) by one week and resume them on July 20th from 8:00-11:00 am. This will give us 14 days from July 4th, when people may have been out of state or in large groups that day. Again, our number one priority is the safety off all involved. #RTS

Looking Forward to 2020-21 As most of you have hopefully read or heard, Governor Abbott recently announced schools will be reopening for on-campus instruction for the 2020-21 school year. At this time, no specific guidance from TEA has been issued to districts regarding what that “reopening” will look like. TEA Commissioner Mike Morath has told districts across the state to expect guidance for in-person instruction to be released on or around July 2. MISD is currently planning for students to return to school for in person instruction on August 19, 2020 with adjustments made to help keep our children safe while also providing them with a quality education. Our focus will continue to be on the health and safety students, staff, families and community. As we have all discovered through this pandemic, it is an ever-changing situation and we will continue to monitor it and adjust accordingly. As we receive information and guidance from state and local officials, I will keep you all updated. Stay Well, Stay Safe, Stay Blessed, Stay Awesome! Mrs. Edwards

Halloween was a fun learning day at MES! 2nd grade learned about mixtures & reactions with baking soda & vinegar "ghosts". 4th grade had a "funeral" for dead (overused) words in Lang. Arts & 5th graders raced using "snot" to capture, then decode Figurative Language Phrases.
