We are thrilled to announce that Medfield Heights Elementary has won its 3rd Access for All Grant through the Young Audiences of Maryland. With this support, Medfield Heights Elementary will host renowned Flamenco dancer and choreographer Anna Menendez on November 21st for (2) back to back morning assemblies. More information coming home in your student's folders!
The PTO is thrilled to continue to support dance and cultural performances in celebration of our school's incredibly diverse student community! Thank you to PTO member Tony Tsendeas for your continued grant writing assistance.
Anna Menendez will engage students in a masterful performance of Spanish dance and Flamenco, while exposing them to the concept of how rhythm expresses emotions. Students will learn basic Spanish vocabulary, use map skills to locate and identify various Spanish-speaking countries, and gain an appreciation of Spanish culture and traditional dance.
Anna Menendez is a Flamenco dancer and choreographer who studied extensively in Spain. She was the recipient of the Artists’ Fellowship award from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities for excellence in Flamenco dance in 2003. She has performed in many operas and with the “La Truco Flamenco” dance company in Spain, appeared in the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and performances with Carmela Greco.
Support our NEWEST recycling program at Medfield Heights Elementary School. Thank you to Ms. Cafuir and the Medfield Heights Recycling Club for bringing the Entenmann's Little Bites recyling program to MHES! Every pouch collected promotes school sustainability through the Terracycle program and raises money for the school.
Pack these tasty treats in your kids lunch - and kids can put the empty Little Bites pouches in the collection box on the school stage.

Each year, MHES invites our families to enjoy a light breakfast with their children and/or grandchildren during American Education Week (November 13-16) in the cafeteria and library. This event begins at 9:00am, and ends promptly at 10:00am in order to set up for the first lunch period.
Monday, November 13th, is Breakfast with Grandparents
Tuesday, November 14th, is Doughnuts with Dads
Wednesday, November 15th, is Muffins with Moms
Thursday, November 16th, is Breakfast with the Principal (for any students who didn't have any visitors during American Education Week-teachers will track)
In order to make sure we have enough food, we are asking that families RSVP for any day they plan on attending. We cannot accommodate visitors who haven't RSVP'd first. If you are unable to attend on the day that best fits your role as a parent, RSVP for an alternate day of the week, Mon-Weds.
Please complete the survey below to help us prepare!
If you have more than 1 child, please enter them separately!
Claire's Gourmet orders will be ready for pick-up today in the library between 2:20PM - 6PM. Please bring your own boxes and bags to carry home your delicious goodies!
A special thank you to MHES grandparent and retired teacher, Onelee Jakowski, who has volunteered to teach FRENCH during school for selected students starting in mid November. Children will learn basic french conversation, songs, folk dances and culture. We are thrilled to have so many dedicated parents, grandparents, and volunteers lending their talent and time to support MHES students and staff. Viva La MHES!
