To celebrate You Matter / Love this Life week, today we had a guest speaker. Ms. Alicia Hill, the owner of A Career Girl LLC, came to campus to discuss emotional well-being and how to manage stress. Students learned how to recognize signs of stress and anxiety and different coping strategies they can use to assist them when needed. Ms. Hill discussed exercising, deep breathing, eating a balanced diet, dancing your troubles away, taking a break when needed and sharing concerns with a trusted adult. Thanks, Ms. Hill for teaching us about stress and what we can do to stay physically and emotionally healthy!

Hello again, just another amazing day at Memphis School of Excellence Elementary Cordova. Our outstanding students have showed up and showed out once again. Here are some of the amazing moments from our 2022 MSEEC Science Fair. These pictures capture our MSEEC students amazing work and efforts on their science fair projects. Extremely proud of all the students who put in a lot time and effort to execute their projects. We have selected winners from each grade, 2nd-5th. Thank you all for showing up and supporting this event and our students. Another shout out to our amazing parents for assisting each child to completion. None of this is possible without your full support both inside and outside the classroom. What an amazing way to close out the school year. Cannot wait to see what our students are willing and able to accomplish next school year!

On May 18th, we did something amazing! Our MSE Walk-a-thon went extremely well. All of our students walked for Childhood Cancer Awareness.

I am so proud of my students and my school as a whole for coming together as a community to support this cause. It truly means a lot to me and the family at St. Jude. I am happy and honored to be able to bless a child and family at St. Jude with these amazing gift baskets. I want to thank every parent, student, teacher, and admin for making this possible. We will continue to accept donations until the last day of school.

I cannot wait to gift this basket and bring joy into one child's life at such a difficult time. I hope all the children at St. Jude continue to fight cancer until a cure is possible. I will keep raising awareness and do what I can to teach but also spread love + joy to those in need.

Using Zoom, First Grade Students had a great learning opportunity as they met with Brian Koell, Department of Natural Resource, Wildlife Biologist from Marquette, Michigan. Mr. Koell shared pictures of animals the DNR are currently tracking and explained how the collars and tags helped the DNR learn about their particular habitats. He also explained that they provide preventive health care by using GPS to locate the animals. He also talked about the tagging collars providing information of behavior changes on the animals if it seems like it is injured. At this time they can provide needed animal care. He shared they are like veterinarians making sure they can provide medical care for wildlife animals. First grade students asked questions to Mr. Koell after he discussed his education and highlights of his job. This was a great opportunity and look forward to inviting him to discuss other learning opportunities.


These ladies are great at what they do.

Hats off to our teachers and staff that do the hard work daily to propel our kids towards their dreams. WE SALUTE ALL TEACHERS! 💪
