What a busy last week we have had at MES! Full of smiles and laughs with our MES Talent Show and Field Day last Friday and then we began this week with a trip to the Lazy Heart D Buffalo Ranch and the MES Save the World Day. We spent the morning doing community service around Olsburg. Sticks, limbs, and trash were all picked up and the students did a great job in taking pride in their community. The fun continues on Wednesday with a trip to the Astro 3 theater in Marysville for a movie and then pizza at Marysville City Park to reward the students for all their dedication to the Reading Counts Program. Bus will leave at 8:45 and return around 2:00 p.m. Last Day Of School will be on Thursday, May 19th with a 12:45 dismissal.

McCormick Elementary School is counting down the remaining days of school quickly. It has been a great year at MES and the students and staff are excited to finish the school year on a high note. I wanted to pass along a couple reminders for activities we have planned for the end of the week. Our annual MES Talent Show will take place at 12:15 p.m. on Friday in the Old Gym at the High School. The MES students have been busy perfecting many different talents. You will be amazed with tumbling, jokes, poems, and numerous other talents. You will not want to miss it! At the completion of the MES Talent Show, we will hit the track for an afternoon of field events such as the long jump, high jump, and softball throw. MES Field Day will begin 1:00 p.m. or shortly after. Parents and families are welcome to attend. Thanks, Mr.Schreiber
