Caught in the act! Transition Coordinator, Jennie Coston, was spotted adding her own personal touches that she crocheted to the tree in the Sugnet Building. A few of the MCESA departments have made their own ornaments that they have placed on the tree this year, which makes it extra special. 🎄

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.
