Hello MECE Families!
Hoping everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! The first half of our school year was a
great success thanks to the wonderful MECE families and volunteers!! Thank you to all that came out to
our cookie exchange, Yard House social, and MECE play date and thank you to Stephanie Rasel and
Marina Kirchheimer for your planning with these events! The events were a great time and the start of
new traditions. As we return in 2024, look forward to lots of exciting things!
Our first PA meeting of 2024 will be Wednesday, January 10 in the Center Room. We will be discussing
our annual Auction, Family Fun Day, Square One Art, and the MECE Fun Run. Please join us if you can!
