Head Lice Common Occurrence

Your cooperation is essential to control head lice problems.  The school nurse checks children for suspected lice.  However, we strongly urge you to check your child's hair, clothes and bedding for any sign of lice and nits daily.  If you have any questions about how to treat lice, please call the office.

Priority: Promoting a Culture of Tolerance

We are committed to collaborating with our stakeholders to achieve changes that create and promote a culture of tolerance and acceptance at MWES!  Here's how we plan to do so:


1.  Social-Emotional Learning Curriculum - Teachers will be trained on the Responsive Classroom (http://www.responsiveclassroom.org) curriculum from June 13-16, 2017.  The program will be implemented during the 2017-2018 school year.


2.  Playworks - Recess aides and 2 teachers will receive a 3-hour on campus training on the http://www.playworks.org/about/how-playworks model to incorporate structured play opportunities for our students during recess.


3.  Student Counseling Services - On March 7, Restorative Justice Advisor Marco Flores and Nora, Belmont High School's Restorative Justice Teacher gave the teachers a refresher on community circles.  They also worked with the teachers on planning future circle topics.


4.  Play Leaders - starting March 6, 15 trained Student Council members (3rd-6th graders) assumed leadership roles on the school yard to support the younger students.  3 groups of 5 students will alternate on a weekly basis to 5 different play areas.


5.  Beyond the Bell - On March 3, Edwin, a temporary staff member was assigned to this after school program.

Character of the Month

Students show responsibility by being role models for others, having self-control, and doing the right thing.  For example, students have shown responsibility in the following ways:  by picking up after themselves; 4 students turned in money found on the yard; a 1st grade student returned his friend's bracelet; 6th grade students help 3rd grade students with their writing assignments; and 2nd grade students read to kindergarteners.

Neighbors report that parents drive very aggressively and do not obey stop signs.  Let's also be good neighbors by not blocking driveways and parking legally.  Parents may not be aware, u-turns are illegal in front of the school on San Rafael.
