Striving To Be Florida's Premier Learning Organization

News

The Florida Standards have introduced a whole new level of rigour to our students, but our students have accepted the challenge.  Our mid year reports show that more and more of our students are 'catching up' and getting on grade level.  Five of our Terriers were recently recognized by the school board for being above grade level.  Congratulations, Terriers.  Do not let anyone or anything hold you back!

Mr. Glenn Ford was recently introduced as the MHES Support Person of the Year at our annual district banquet.  Mr. Ford is our In-School Suspension para-professional, but he helps out the school in so many more ways.  Thanks, Mr. Ford, and congratulations!

MHES recently hosted a family night in our cafeteria.  The turnout was tremendous, and everyone appeared to have a great time.  We cannot wait to do it again.  Thank you to all of our staff and school volunteers who came together to make this evening a success.  Thanks especially to Mrs. Kristi Hingson.  This evening would never have happened without your vision and leadership!

MHES sponsored "Christmas on the Caloosahatchee", our annual get-together to celebrate the season, on December the 11th at Tom Perry Park.  The evening began with a special singing of Christmas Carols in the Creek language by students of Pemayetv Emahakv Charter School on the Brighton Reservation.  Visitors could then wander among countless booths with information for for our community, free gifts, pictures with Santa Claus and much much more.  We concluded the evening with MHES's 46th birthday celebration, complete with firweorks!  Special thanks go out to the Glades County Board of County Commissioners, the City of Moore Haven, and the Accelerated Reaing Team at MHES for helping make such a wonderful evening.

MHES is proud to sponsor a YMCA chapter at the school.  We offer a safe place for your child to go after school, until 5:30 pm.  Students receive a light snack daily, and receive homework help and fun, outdoor activities.  The cost is a mere $10 a week!  Thank you to Superintendent Bass, Assisitant Principal Mrs. FeLinda Langdale, the Suncoast Schools' Credit Union, YMCA and the United Way for helping to make this happen.

Congratulations to Mrs. Garrett.  She was chosen by the MHES staff and community to represent our school as the 2015-2016 Teacher of the Year.  Mrs. Garrett has worked at the school teaching sixth grade science and social studies, and now teaches first grade, where she serves as the Grade Level Chairperson.  She is an outstanding teacher and an outstanding choice.  Congratulations, Mrs. Garrett, and thank you for all you do!

Congratulations to Pastor Charley Watts.  Pastor Charlie was chosen by the MHES staff and community to represent the school as our Volunteer of the Year.  Pastor Charley works hard to support our school and students every day.  He is a familiar face in our cafeteria and our school, practicing and reinforcing our mission of showing "trust, understanding and respect" for our students and staff to see.   He is a member of our School Advisory Council, and helps us to implement many new ideas-including dressing up as a hippopatamus to help with our school-wide fundraiser.  Congratulations, Pastor Charley, and thanks for all you do.
