Happy Easter

We hope you had a wonderful Easter with your family and you have a renewed spirit in your heart.

Thank you so much to Nicole Stewart, Kristen McElwee, Kelly Koscso and the all parents that volunteered to help make the Family Fun Day and Auction such a huge success!! Everyone had a fabulous time and truly enjoyed themselves.

All of your hard work is greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you to Kelly Koscso and all the moms who volunteered to help make the the Square 1 Art masterpieces. They helped each child make their own handprint art work. We hope you ordered a special keepsake

for yourself or a family member.

Thank you to all the parents that helped out with the Easter parties.

Everyone had a great time!!!

Thank you to all of the First United Methodist Church volunteers!

Police Visit

Thank you to the Boca Raton Police department for coming out and teaching the children about car safety, what number to call in an emergency, and what to do if you get separated from your parents in a public place.

Special Readers

Miss Gina's class was treated to two special readers (MECE alum) that came in to read to her class. The children really enjoyed listening to the stories that were read to them. We hope your child will come back and visit us someday too!

MECE Sunday

The children did an absolutely fabulous job singing at MECE Sunday! The members of FUMC truly enjoyed hearing them and watching their enthusiasm as they sang.

Thank you Janice Nelson for providing our fun Sunday School activities. Thank you Cindy Walls for the fellowship time (and cookies) on the lawn!

Parent Workshop

Thank you Stephanie Rasel for sharing your time and talent. Everyone had a wonderful time of discussion and sharing! Mark your calendar now to attend our next Workshop on Wednesday, May 15. Parents Morning Out is available with reservation for younger siblings. Ask Cathy for a $10 coupon while attending a MECE event.

Kindergarten Fieldtrip

Our Kindergarten went on a fun-filled fieldtrip to Sandaway Discovery Center in Delray Beach. They had a wonderful time learning about how important the ocean is to our environment, got to pet a stingray, see sea turtles and watch the feeding of a nurse shark. They highly recommend visiting there.

Take your valuables with you
Please make sure you take your valuables with you. Do not leave them in your car. Another local pre-school recently had a smash and grab while a parent was picking up their child.
Here is what MECE parents and students say about why MECE is so special!

Distracted Driving Information

The Palm Beach Health Department requires us to have parents sign a flyer regarding car safety two times annually. This is called the Distracted Driver brochure and is included in our newsletter each month. You will receive a separate email through the Procare app. I think it works best to "sign" on a computer. If you are unable to get it to work, then please hit reply and acknowledge receipt of this information when you receive that email.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

Wednesday, April 24th

Look for an email from Sign-up Genius to

sign-up for your meeting time. Be sure to find your child's teacher's name to sign up for the correct class. There is no school this day as all teachers are in conferences and assistants are babysitting during the conference. Be sure to allow time to shop the Marketplace.
