Growth Mindset

September 10, 2017

Growth Mindset is a must in 5th grade and Mrs. Wassman's classes stretched their brains the first week of school. The students had to use 4 strings and a rubber band to stack 6 red cups WITHOUT touching them with their body. This made working math problems seem easy!!

MSE Morning Show

September 10, 2017

These hard-working 5th graders produce the MSE Morning Show 5 days a week. They write the content, run the cameras, teleprompters and sound system, and organize special guests and announcements, all before 8:00 every morning! Thank you, Laila Shipman, Lucas Arcabascio, Nayeli Guerra, and Lilly Coots for your hard work!

Cooperatively Working

September 10, 2017

Students in Mrs. Cameron's third grade class learned to work cooperatively to solve problems the first week of school . The students had to create solutions to various problems in order to find hidden school supplies, and ultimately "save the principal" in a fun team-building activity. "Teamwork sparks success" and these third graders are off to a great start!

September 7, 2017

Weather Monitoring

Superintendent Hughes is keeping in constant contact with community partners and the Governor of Florida to make sure he has the most up-to-date information regarding the weather.
