MEC Ends 2022 on a Good Note

MEC Ends 2022 with Food, Fun, and Community Recognition!

MEC Students and Staff

MEC’s last day of the school year ending for 2022 was spent with a catered breakfast from the popular restaurant The Big Apple. Students and staff enjoyed hot pancakes, sausage, bacon, eggs, hash browns, and pastry from a local bakery. Mrs. Sable and Mr. Stephens served first and seconds to both students and staff.

Mrs. Pitkin kicked off a real-live “auction” for students. Items were donated by staff, including some really nice items students could “gift” to family and friends. Many students had never participated in an auction, so this was an exciting activity for everyone. Students could use their “behavior points” accumulated through the year to get items. Seeing their excitement during the auction was priceless!

We also held our quarterly Community Awards recognition ceremony to end the year. Superintendent Dr. Kara and Mayor Bogs from Monee assisted in the ceremony, as students were recognized for attendance, leadership, and school community involvement. Many students received multiple recognition awards due to their outstanding participation.

Students from Mrs. Murtaugh’s class received special leadership recognition for a proposal they presented to the school regarding a new level of student responsibility. They developed a proposal to allow the highest functioning students to be unescorted throughout the building. It is now called the TS (Trustworthy Students’) Privilege.

Staff also participated in a bit of fun! Students received 3 Golden Tickets every day during the last days before Winter Break and gave one to a staff member for being positive, saying something kind, and as a way to recognize them. All staff participated in an “Elephant” style giveaway of items donated. Congratulations to Mr. Perkins for earning the most Golden Tickets!

Students and staff would all agree that we ended on a good note in 2022 - food, fun, and community recognition! Here we come, 2023!
