Canned Food Drive

Student council had a successful canned food drive.  Thank you to our parents, students, and staff for your generous contributions.  With your help we were able to donate many barrels of food to Abode Homeless Shelter.  A big Thank you goes out to Mrs. Martin for coordinating the food drive.

Bucket Challenge for Mr. Graves!
Our school set a goal for the students in regards to the total amount raised by the book fair, Mr. Graves promised for the iced water bucket challenge if the students met the target. The students were able to reach the goal and Mr. Graves took the bucket challenge from ALL 21 classes! The money raised from the book fair will be used to donate books to Washington Hospital.
Math Competition

At the recent Math League competition, MSJE had 4 students place in the top 20. Leading the way for the Mustangs was Alexander L. who took top honors. Also performing well was Anish K. (13th place), Abhitha V. (18th place) and Tommy K. (19th place). There were 100 sixth graders participating in this contest. MSJE has four more competitions scheduled until the end of February 2015.

Campus Visitors

Student safety is our number one concern.  In an effort to ensure a safe environment for our students, ALL VISITORS MUST CHECK IN AT THE OFFICE, SIGN IN, AND WEAR A VISITOR’S BADGE WHILE ON CAMPUS.   Please do not sign out ahead of time. This is for your safety.  All staff is trained to question any adult they see on campus during school hours without a visitor’s badge.  This is for the protection of your student.  Please help us keep our children safe by following these guidelines.
