This week we honor the dedicated teachers and nurses working in our schools. This week is Teacher Appreciation Week, and May 8 is National School Nurse Day.
MESD nurses and teachers have chosen a different path than most others in their professions. Rather than work in traditional school or medical environments, they've instead chosen to serve the students who need them most here at MESD.
Our specialized services make a difference for students and we are fortunate to have skilled professionals willing to serve. Please take a moment to recognize and thank the teachers and school nurses you work with.
To our nurses and teachers - thank you so much for all you do on behalf of our students and community every day!
Today is Administrative Professionals' Day. Our administrative professionals provide a critical backbone to the work of MESD and strengthen our ability to provide service to students and community.
Some are the faces of our schools and programs. Others work tirelessly behind the scenes. In all cases, they deserve our thanks and recognition. Please take a moment to thank the administrative professionals that support you.
For my part, I know that MESD could not possibly be successful without you. Thank you for all you do every day of the year!
