Every Day Matters!

Hello, and Seasons Greetings, MES families!

Report cards will be coming home in backpacks this week. Along with your student's report card, you will also be receiving the first of what will be monthly attendance snap-shot updates, informing you of where your child's attendance stands for the month prior. These notes will serve the purpose of providing you with an ongoing look at your child's average daily attendance. 
Here are some attendance facts for your to keep in mind as the rest of our school year progresses:
  • MES' school-wide attendance goals for the next three years are:
             - 2019-2020: 90%
             - 2020-2021: 93%
             - 2021-2022: 96%
  • When students' average daily attendance falls below 92%, they are what is considered "chronically absent." This translates to missing 18, or more days of school per year, or missing 10% of the school year.
  • Missing just one school day, arriving tardy, or leaving early on a regular basis has a cumulative impact over time. See the graphic below, or watch this video for more information.
While we understand that due to illness and other normal family events, it is sometimes not possible for your child to be at school, we want to partner with you in a positive way to ensure every MES student attends school as often as possible, and will grow to be successful, contributing members of our society! This means celebrating our shared success, and offering support and assistance whenever possible. If you have any questions, or if there is a way we can better support your child at school, please don't hesitate to call: 503-829-4333.
Thank you for partnering with us, and enjoy your Holiday Season!

Hola y Saludos de la Temporada, Familias de MES!
Los reportes de calificaciones van a ir a casa esta semana. Junto con el reporte de calificaciones de su estudiante, también va a recibir el primero de lo que va a ser  el reporte de asistencia mensual, informando cómo está la asistencia de su hijo(a) del mes anterior.
Estas notas son con el propósito de que usted tenga conocimiento del promedio de su asistencia diaria. 
Aquí hay unos factores de asistencia para que los tenga presente conforme el resto del año progresa: 
  • Las metas de asistencia de MES para los próximos tres años son: 
             - 2019-2020: 90%
             - 2020-2021: 93%
             - 2021-2022: 96%
  • Cuando la asistencia de los estudiantes va debajo del 92%, se les considera "ausencia crónica". Esto se traduce como 18 faltas, o más días de escuela por año o faltando el 10% del año escolar.
  • El faltar un solo dia de escuela, el llegar tarde, o salir temprano de manera regular con el tiempo tiene un impacto acumulativo. Vea la grafica a continuación, o vea el video para mayor información. 
Mientras que entendimos no es posible que a veces, su alumno puede asistir clases, por el salud, or otras cosas familiares, queremos interapoyar para trabajar juntos por el éxito de su niño/a. Como siempre, si tiene preguntas, llámanos en la oficina: 503-829-4333.

Way to go, MES Eagles!

Our eagles donated hundreds of cans of food and other items to support our community during our canned food drive. We look forward to helping those in need. Well done, kids!
