Principal's Message

  • Fabulous MPE Families,

    I want to share the love this month not only because it is February, but also because of the support you have shown our school, staff, and students! You are the most important “teacher” in your child’s life and without you as part of our team we would not be as successful as we are. I have no doubt that with continued support and commitment from all stakeholders, the individual hopes and dreams of our students will be achieved. I am looking forward to have a successful spring semester! 

    February is a busy month with so much to celebrate! We will kick-off Black History Month by focusing attention on the contributions of African Americans to the United States. During the week of February 6th-10th, we will celebrate National School Counseling Week by acknowledging our amazing counselors, Ms. Lori Gonzales, Ms. Renisha Oubre and Ms. Angie Martin for their dedication and service to all students. We will be hosting Breakfast with Buddies at 9:30 am on February 13th (Pre-K/Kindergarten), February 15th (1st Grade), and February 16th (2nd Grade). Teachers will be sending  forms home for those “Buddies” that would like to participate in Breakfast and a Morning Meeting Activity. On Friday, February 17th, MPE students will participate in our annual Mardi Gras Parades. 

    Mark your calendar for PTO’s Bingo Night, which will be held on March 17th! Pre-order forms will be sent home to purchase bingo cards and tickets in advance. Don’t miss out on taking a chance on a dozen different baskets filled to the brim with gifts and games! What could be more fun than coming together with our Pelican community to play games and win prizes?!

    Consider ways you can become an active member of our PTO! Letters to indicate your interest in serving on the MPE PTO Board for the 2023-2024 school year will be coming soon. Take this opportunity to serve on the Board. The MPE PTO Board members volunteer as well as help to generate funds to purchase materials and supplies for our students and teachers throughout the year.

    Even though February is the shortest month of the year, take the time to make memories and foster relationships that will last a lifetime!
