The Week Ahead

L'Anse Creuse Foundation Grant Winners!

Every year the L'Anse Creuse Foundation generously funds grants for teachers who want to go above and beyond and provide unique opportunities or resources to our students at MSE. This year we were fortunate enough to have many teachers at MSE take the time and effort to write a grant proposal and submit it for funding. Mr. Kosi, Mrs. Gentner, Ms. Rea, Mrs. French, Mrs. Watanabe, and Mrs. Kushel all took the time to research, propose, draft, edit, and submit a grant for resources. Through the process, the LC Foundation selected 3 of our wonderful teachers to receive their resources. Join us in congratulating Mr. Kosi, Mrs. Gentner, and Ms. Rea for being selected by the L'Anse Creuse Foundation!

Eagle of the Week!

The Eagle of the Week is one student selected every week and nominated by a teacher for acts that go above and beyond for the MSE Community. This week's "Eagle of the Week" is Copper S. who nominated by Mrs. Abeli. She wrote "Cooper's commitment to trying his best has not gone unnoticed. His diligence, perseverance, and the evident effort he invests in his academic pursuits are truly commendable. Cooper keep up the excellent work, stay focused, and believe in your abilities. Your dedication is a key ingredient for your success, and I'm confident that you'll continue to achieve great things.

14 Days of Christmas!

As we head into Holiday Break, we want to have some fun and students are welcome to participate in the 14 Days of Christmas by following the calendar below! There will be daily raffles for students who participate, so let's have some fun as we finish off our learning before break!

School Attendance

Every day of school is an important opportunity for students to learn as well as to connect to their peers and teachers. We need to reinforce that students learn best when they are IN school. While we understand the importance of keeping sick students home, we also ask that your student attend school every day that they possibly can. They need the social connection, the academic support, and the opportunity to learn and grow. Research clearly shows that academic progress slips once attendance becomes a problem. We are mandated by state law to file truancy on students who have more than 90 hours out of the classroom. So please remember we want your children here! If you are struggling with getting your child to school, or need resources to improve your child's attendance and academic success, please contact your child's counselor or Assistant Principal Mr. MacIntosh

MSE School Store

The holidays are right around the corner, and what better way to celebrate all things MSE than by buying your student some spirit wear! We have a fully stocked School Store with hoodies, t-shirts, crewnecks, sweatpants, and more all able to be purchased for your student or yourself! You can contact Mrs. Malaga at or call the main office at (586) 493-5200 to get in to shop the school store!!
