MES morning program
wraps up an exciting month
Students at Middleburgh Elementary School began their day with songs and celebrations during a weekly morning program on Jan. 28. Led by Principal Kim Ross, kindergarten through third-grade students kicked off the event by reciting the schoolwide values of responsibility, safety and respect.
Students who achieved milestones or have stood out in their classes were honored as Students of the Week. Because Jan. 28 was the last Thursday of the month, the school also recognized January’s Kids with Character, students who have exemplified character strengths taught in each classroom
for their understanding and use of goal-setting inside and outside of the classroom. Following the celebrations, staff members took a moment to speak with students about stranger safety, mirroring a districtwide effort to educate children about safety issues and practices. Parents are encouraged to talk with their children about safety at school and in the community, and the district has provided a
resource of age-appropriate ways
(PDF) to handle these discussions. Congratulations to MES students
and staff on another successful morning program!
