Students in grades 1-5 are also active in the Accelerated Reader program. Students work hard to achieve their goal for each nine-weeks. Reward parties are scheduled for each semester and at the end of the year. Students are recognized for their achievements in a variety of ways such as: Student of the Month (sponsored by local businesses), Jacket Stings, Fine Dining, and through our Character Education program. Each nine-weeks, students are recognized for being on the honor roll, perfect attendance, and meeting AR goals. Promoting academic excellence is first and foremost at MES.
We are fortunate to have a facility that includes two computer labs, media center, science lab, and gymnasium. With our building connected to the high school, students on the Morristown campus have the opportunity to share a cafeteria at the high school. Most recently, we have increased our security by having cameras and a buzzer system installed. Visitors to the building are asked to state their name and business before entering the building. Once inside, visitors report to the office, sign-in, and receive a name tag. If you are interested in learning more about our school, we encourage you to contact us and set up an appointment with our principal, Mr. Corn.
