This Lent, Pope Francis has asked all the faithful to “renew our faith, draw from the living waters of hope, and receive with open hearts the love of God.” This is a beautiful challenge that we have all been given. At MSSE we will journey through this time with our students in giving them opportunities to Fast, Pray and Give.
While the majority of our school year has been online or hybrid we continue to see positive evidence of learning from our students! Standardized STAR testing was completed in late January and we are proud to report that the majority of our students increased their test scores since August. What an amazing accomplishment for our students and credit is due to our families and our MSSE teachers. We continue to hold high expectations for our students by providing them with every opportunity for academic growth while continuing to build a sense of community.
L.A. County has announced that students in grades K-6 may return to full in-person learning with proper safety measures in place. Since October, we have been operating within the county-approved cohorts in grades K-8 and waiver for grades K-2. We are grateful to all families, whose children have returned to campus, for their cooperation in following all protocols and safety measures. I know our MSSE Family will continue to work together to ensure the well-being of everyone on campus as more students return.
We continue to welcome new students into our MSSE Family. It is such a blessing to see our school grow and be able to serve more members of the community! As we begin to prepare for next school year, prospective families can see our enrollment information in the Admissions tab or contact the office to meet with me.
