Visiting the school?  Please sign in and out at the office.

Left something in your classroom? If you need something from your classroom after school gets out, please go to the classroom to see if your teacher is still there.  If the room is empty and the door is locked, you will have to wait until the following school day to retrieve your items.

Early pick up? Notify the teacher in advance and sign the child out in the office. The office will call the child. Do not go directly to the class.

No dogs on campus.

Please check the lost and found in the MUR for lost clothing or accessories.

Just a reminder to all parents.  Please remain behind the school gates, and not  in the corridors or outside classrooms, until the dismissal bell rings.

  • Showing proof of a recent negative TB test
  • Being fingerprinted by the district (at the district offices in Concord)

Fall Festival Help and Support

The Fall Festival is coming back to MDE!. This is a long time tradition for many years.  We are proud to bring back this beloved event to MDE - but can't do it without your help! Sign up on SignUpGenius today!

This is one of the biggest events of the year and requires many volunteers to help set up, run game booths and clean up.  This is a fun event to volunteer for.  The kids and parents love the Fall Festival.  There will be a haunted house, food, bounce house, slide and many games.  Some of the games are Tic Toe Boo, Duck Derby, Cake Walk and many more.

Please help us out by signing up to volunteer for a shift.  Most shifts are short, easy and fun.  If you sign up for a game booth, your assigned game will be given to you prior to the Fall Festival.  Working a game booth consists of running the game, taking tickets and passing out prizes.  The best part is the interaction with the kids.  Other positions needed are at the prize booth, slide, and the bounce house.

Thank you for supporting MDE.  We can't do it without you.

MDE needs more Parent Educators for our Parent Educator Program (PEP)!!

PEP is a program created by the Center for Human Development to reduce risk factors for adolescent drug use and to promote resiliency in children.  The Parent Educator Program trains community volunteers (parents) to present health promotion curriculum to elementary students.  Currently, PEP is offered to 4th graders each year at MDE, but we need more trainers!! 

No prior teaching experience is required.  Volunteers should have a good rapport with children and a commitment to alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention.  Many current and prior trainers have found the training beneficial to their own parenting skills, but the real reward is being able to make a difference at your local school!  If you are interested in joining the MDE PEP team, please contact Krista Parker at kptimes2@mac.com - please also view the attached application.
