We have wrapped up a friendly door decorating contest at MCESA, and we need your help! Our Facebook page contains images with all of the decorated doors; the door (image) that gets the most number of “likes/loves” will win a prize! The contest runs through Sunday, December 11, 2022, so be sure to vote for your favorite door by liking an individual photo by the end of the day on December 11. Thank you for joining in on our winter and holiday fun! ❄️☃️ https://tinyurl.com/2uzbspey #mcesabettertogether

Thank you to all veterans for your bravery and sacrifice.
Congratulations to MCESA Teacher, Kelly Brandle, who recently received the 212 Award from Midland High School. The 212 Award is in reference to the fact that water is hot at 211 degrees, but one more degree causes water to boil. Thus, the 212 Award recognizes those who go that extra degree to make a difference in their job with students and co-workers. Way to go, Kelly!
Special delivery! The MCESA TRAILS cooking class visited the administration offices with a tasty treat they are trying out for Thanksgiving. We are extra thankful for their visits.
