Dear MET Parents,
Thank you so much for your support this week in helping our students transition back to school. It has been a very successful week all around! Our youngest students' transitioned comfortably to their new classrooms which provide ample space for exploration and interacting with other students in their grade level and outside of their class group.
Dear MET Parents,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!
Thank you to all for a wonderful start to our new year together. From Monday's New Family Orientation Day through the first three days of classes, we have enjoyed renewing friendships and discovering new ones. "Discover" is our word/theme of focus this year. Building on last year's "Wonder-Discover-Share!" This year we seek to use our knowledge, senses, and insights to find answers and solutions to our questions. For new students and returning families, we start by discovering our new class settings, new teachers, and new curriculum, which in turn will bring new inquiries to explore.
We’ve opened the new school year with a lot of enthusiasm and positive energy. We have 268 students in 13 homerooms, four new teachers and 28 new students. Our renovations include a new classroom, two new offices, and a new hallway.
We're ready to start a new year of athletics! Check out the links below for information about our Athletics Program and how to register.

Dear MET families,
The first week of school is always filled with mixed emotions of happiness, curiosity, anxiety and adventure. These emotions are sometimes linked with food. It is important to continue to have healthy routines at home to ease the process of adaptation.
Returning students are happy to enjoy our delicious meals, and some new students take a bit of time to adapt to their new environment. I encourage all parents to be patient and to feel confident that it is only a normal process. Sometimes anxious children forget to eat, do not feel hungry, and do not get enough sleep. Please help them begin their mornings with a wonderful breakfast.
At school, we will provide them with a delicious snack around 9:00am and a healthy lunch that includes a colorful salad bar, soup station, fresh fruits, and a balanced warm meal. If your child rides the bus, we will provide a light snack before boarding the bus (crackers and a fruit). You could also pack a light snack to be eaten only before boarding the bus.
Always have a welcome snack prepared at home, to receive all these champions after a school day. This will make them feel happy and comfortable. Soon some of the students will be having birthdays, so do not forget to access this link to place an order for your cake to celebrate.
