Dear MTES Families,
We’re excited to announce that MTES will be participating in a District Wide-Elementary Virtual Field Day event on Friday, June 5th.
Field Day is an important tradition at our school. It is a significant day for our students and our staff, and we feel in these incredibly challenging times, this event is a unique way that we can stay connected as a school and support one another in a fun and meaningful way. Students must check in with their classroom teachers on Friday, June 5th, and then spend the rest of the day doing field day events. No other classwork will be required. Administrators, Teachers, Staff and Students will be participating in field day activities.
Any Manchester Township School District family may pick up meals at the High School or Middle School on Monday and Thursday from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.

Our school district has been at home since March 16th and our students and staff are now doing "Remote Learning"! We know that learning can take place anywhere and everyone is doing their best with this new style of teaching and learning. But as the days turn to weeks we are all finding out how much we miss the human touch and especially how much our staff misses seeing the smiling faces of our MTES students.
