Hello Maine-Endwell Families,

It is hard to believe that the holidays are just around the corner!  As we enter the holiday season, we expect to see some snowy weather.  This is just a reminder to check our website (www.me.stier.org) for any cancellations or delays due to inclement weather.  In addition, closings and delays will be announced on the radio and television stations and our School Messenger phone call will go out in the morning.  However the quickest way to be alerted to a closing or delay is by following District @MECSDSpartans, Superintendent @VanFossenJason or myself @MESHPrincipal on Twitter. We remind all of our driving students to plan on arriving at least 10 minutes prior to class to allow for safe travel to school in different weather conditions.

 

#Upstander Program comes to M-E Senior High School

Recently, our high school has partnered with Siena College, AT&T, and Broome County Executive Jason Garner to provide anti-cyberbullying training.  Sienna college students worked with a group of high school students to become ambassadors for the Upstander program which focuses on identifying and taking active measures against cyberbullying. 

 

The great day culminated with an assembly for the entire high school put on by Siena College and our own students.  If you are aware of any bullying happening online of any Maine-Endwell Students we encourage you to:

  • =         Screen capture the message
  • =         Report the incident to the main office by phone or online at http://www.me.stier.org/DASA.aspx
  • =         Be an Upstander, let the person know respectfully that you do not condone their online behavior.

 

Student Safety:

 

We value the safety of our students and encourage them to make positive decisions while not in school.  Over the next few weeks and during our holiday assembly we will be reinforcing the importance of making good decisions while driving including not driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and not texting while driving.  Please reinforce these ideas of safety by:

  • =         Talking to your children about the importance of driving safely
  • =         Checking up on your child’s destinations and arrival times when driving
  • =         Discuss strategies for driving in hazardous weather conditions
  • =         Modeling safe driving habits

We want our students returning back to school happy and safe in 2018!

 

No Parking in Main Loop Fire Lane

 

Last year we were notified by town municipalities that parking in the main loop in undesignated areas was violating the fire code.  In the event of an emergency, ambulances and or fire trucks would need to access the main loop and would not be able to do so.  So as of November 1st, we have designated the opposite side of parking in the loop as a fire lane.  Please make sure that as you come to enjoy school events that you do not park in this area as your vehicle will be ticketed or towed. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you!

 

Student Activities:

 

Our athletic teams are now into the winter season after again having an extremely successful fall season and have barely missed a beat.  Go Spartans!!  Thank you for continuing to support our athletic programs.  These programs teach our athletes valuable life skills such as ethics, mental fortitude, and how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. 

 

Some of our talented musicians will travel to other schools to participate in the NYSSMA Area All-State competitions.    A few of our musicians will be representing us in Regional showcases in the near future.  What an honor!  In addition, all of our musicians will perform during our winter concerts that are scheduled for December 4th and 11th.  We are also excited to host our elementary buildings this year for a holiday musical celebration before winter break.   We hope you are able to enjoy the holiday music at one of our shows.

 

Our Winter Assembly is scheduled for December 22nd at the end of the day.  This is a show where we invite students at staff to showcase their talents in the spirit of celebration and coming together.  The assembly is during the school day and seating is reserved for students.  However, you will be able to watch the show online from the comfort of your home to see the talents of our students.

On behalf of our staff, I would like to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season.  Thank you again for all your support and everything you do for the Maine-Endwell Senior High School.

 

Sincerely,

Thomas Burkhardt, Principal
