New Course at MES
Mrs. Moncrief and Mrs. Robins have been working with second and third graders to establish and improve their keyboarding skills.  This week, students learned the "home row" keys. Students have enjoyed becoming familar with the new program and are establishing skills that will help them with new testing formats.

strange Science at MES
This year MES students have the opportunity to visit our Science Lab each week. Our very own "Science Diva", Mrs. Glass, guides them in completing hands-on, interactive science experiments.  Not only are our students learning about science, but they are enjoying every minute of it!

Teachers of Tomorrow visit MES
Third grade students were in for a real treat when the "Teachers of Tomorrow" of Marion High School visited and performed a live puppet show. The high school students had recently completed a study of children's books and had created an original puppet show using the story If Only I Had a Green Nose by Max Lucado. Students enjoyed watching the show and the message about accepting our unique qualities and resisting fads and peer pressure was well received.


Patriot Pride!

Marion Elementary students were greeted this morning with a big surprise.  Senior high Patriot football players and cheerleaders were on hand to help greet students and take them to class. You can tell by their smiles that students were excited! The halls were buzzing with school spirit and Patriot pride all day long.

       While teachers work hard to ensure students obtain the best academic instruction on a daily basis, we also believe it is important to take time to teach students to be good citizens who care for and respect each other.  We believe it is important to help build good character in all students.

      At MES, we call positive students "bucket fillers."  "Bucket Fillers" are those who help without being asked, give compliments, and generally spread their love and good feelings to others.  Bucket filling is a common act in our classroom and one that does not go unrecognized. 

      At the beginning of the school year, we read the book Have You Filled a Bucket Today?  This wonderful book explains to students that to fill a friend's bucket, they also fill their own bucket because it feels good to make others happy.  We also discussed what it means to be a bucket dipper.  A bucket dipper is a person who hurts other people's feelings, essentially dipping into their invisible bucket.  Ar MES we strive to be a bucket filler each and every day! 

      Have you filled a bucket today?

Be a Bucket Filler!!!!!!!!
Everyone has an invisible bucket.
You can’t see it, but it is there.
Its purpose is to hold your good feeling about yourself.
Be a bucket filler – Say kind words to others and your bucket and theirs will be filled.
