Knight Notes are stickers that students receive for exhibiting desirable behaviors. This year the theme of Knight Notes centered on “The Amazing Race.” 

The school set a goal of receiving 5,000 Knight Notes and students achieved that goal in January.  Mr. DeLyser and Ms. Hudson, the physical education teachers at MES, helped the students celebrate by designing fun “Amazing Race” activities for the students to enjoy during their PE classes. 

Positive behaviors celebrated include: attendance; being on time; being safe; being in control of your body; having pride in your community, self and school; using kinds words; picking up items even if they are not yours; putting forth your best effort; resolving conflicts; telling the truth; staying focused; taking ownership of actions and valuing differences.
