MES Menu Change for Tuesday, December 7th: Chicken Quesadillas, Refried Beans, Garden Salad, Mandarin Oranges, Fresh Fruit and Milk
Hello MES Families, After speaking with Mr. Homburg and being as safe as possible during this time, I have decided to make the change for MES concerts to happen during the school day. The decision was a tough one to make, but with the positives we have had lately, I feel it is important for some room in the Performing Arts Center as all of our performances always bring in a full house. Below is the schedule for performances for the week and EVERYBODY is invited! We will video the performances and send the link out for each one. Again, thank you for your support of MES during this school year! Performance Times: Kindergarten: Friday, December 10th from 11:25am to 11:40am First Grade: Thursday, December 9th from 10:25am to 10:40am Second Grade: Wednesday, December 8th from 9:25am to 9:40am Third Grade: Wednesday, December 8th from 12:50pm to 1:05pm Fourth Grade: Friday, December 10th from 2:50pm to 3:05pm Fifth Grade: Thursday, December 9th from 1:50pm to 2:05pm.
We have rescheduled the Emporia State admissions visit for next Monday. If you are interested in learning more about ESU please make plans to visit with the rep during seminar and lunch.

Come see Christian Albin as Captain Von Trapp this Friday & Saturday! "Captain Von Trapp is straight forward, authoritative, and holds high morals. After his wife's death he reverted to militaristic ways as a means to cope. Throughout the production his character softens and develops. The Captain is a great demonstration of what many Austrians were forced to go through during this time. He is an example of holding to what is right when those around you do not." - Christian Albin
Come See Sadie Lange as Maria This Friday & Saturday! "At the beginning of the musical Maria is somewhat immature and childlike. She is a dreamer that is fascinated with the world and music. Her passion often directs her actions. Throughout the musical Maria matures, often setting aside her own wants and feelings for the benefit of others. By the end of the musical her passion is redirected from self-awareness to a deep desire to help those around her." - Sadie Lange
The Sound of Music Premieres This Friday & Saturday
Come See Hannah May as Liesl Von Trapp This Friday & Saturday! "Liesl is a young woman who desperately want to be seen and treated as an adult. She is sassy and reactionary at the beginning of the production. She has a deep care for her siblings and aims to be like their mother was before her death. Liesl's character adapts to those around her. She tries to please the adults when they are around, get attention from Rolf, and be a fun older sister to her siblings. Throughout the production Liesl grows in her character and maturity. Liesl is an example of being passionate and using passion to motivate towards what is right." - Hannah May
