We are about to embark on a new school year at MEI Schools and it is setting up to be an outstanding year.
> Why outstanding?
• We have an excellent team in place including our board, leadership team, and staff who are committed to putting students first and bringing glory to God in all that we do (Leadership Retreat Video, Staff Kick-Off Video)
• We have identified our direction and are pursuing it with passion (Strategic Plan Here)
• We have record enrollment with an additional 40 students at the secondary, a new grade 7 class at the middle (maxing out our classes at 5 at each grade level for the first time ever), and a completely full elementary with 70 students on wait lists)… welcome new Eagles!
• Parent support is inspiring at MEI Schools with unbelievably high levels of PAC involvement, parent attendance at various school events and meetings, and prayer support… we can feel it!
• We have many supporters in the community who are standing with us… thank you!
• Our student body is truly second to none… we are proud of each of you!
With all of the above as a foundation, here’s my question for students, staff, parents, & supporters:
> How will we fill the halls of MEI in 2017/2018?
Here are some things that I’m thinking about:
1) Let’s look to Jesus in everything we do together
2) Let’s have Tons of Fun together… every day seems to be a good day to be at MEI
3) Let’s place a high value on each person in our system and treat them with the utmost respect
4) Let’s fiercely protect fellow Eagles; this is our family and we will guard each other
5) Let’s dream up some great stuff and make it happen together
6) Everybody learn… and keep on learning and growing every day
7) Whatever God has put our hands to, let’s do it to the absolute best of our abilities
8) As great stuff keeps happening, let’s give all the glory to God
Are you ready to have a great year?! Are you excited?! I sure am.
May God bless you,
MEI Head of Schools
