Summer Fun at MTES
During the month of July MTES was host to the District's Extended School Year Program as well as our own Summer Jump Start Program. Mrs. Nicole Sharkey was the coordinator of our program. This year our Summer Jump Start added a Yoga and Mindfulness component to it. All students joined in on a Yoga session each Wednesday with a certified Yoga Instructor. The classes also spent some time in our MTES Learning Garden. Our Fifth Grade Mentors spent some time helping in the Garden as well. On the final day of the program the children enjoyed a Beach Party in the Gym and were joined by three of our Senior Mentors as helpers! The Beach Party incorporated learning activities with a Summer Beach Theme. The Beach Party included an Ice Cream and Watermelon Bar, Panning for coins in the sand, Mini Golf, a Boardwalk Wheel Game, Painting Seashells, Beach Towel Reading Station and Making a Beach Bag. A Fun Time was had by all!! Thank you to our Fifth Grade Mentors for your help throughout the program and to our three Senior Mentors for helping at the Beach Party!
