MHES would like to recognize Addison Helfinstine.  Addison read about a 'buddy bench' in a highlights magazine.  She learned that this bench could be placed in a school's playground, and students who felt like they did not have a friend could sit at that bench to invite others to spend some time with them.  But Addison did not just read the article and think about what a great idea it was.  Addison read the article and decided that MHES needed a buddy bench.  She worked with her mother to secure donations from the project, worked with Mr. Brickel to pick out the site for the new bench, and was the first person to sit on the bench when it was installed.  Leadership like this is not often seen in this world.  We are very proud of Addison, and look forward to more great things from her in the future,

Amazing work, Terriers!

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!

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.
