teachers and students the week of Jan 16th:


Daily- Videos about exceptional individuals on the morning announcements with a Trivia question. Student names will be drawn daily for prizes! 


Tuesday 17th- PTA sponsored Rise Coffee & Tea in the BAR for all MBES teachers and staff. Rise employs several employees with special needs.


Wednesday 18th- Visiting Author Victoria Inman in the Learning Commons. There will be a few student stars from the book to speak. https://www.sparkacceptance.com/


Friday 20th AM- PTA will be collecting a $1 optional donation at the doors and students can wear silly socks and hats. Donations will be split between two non-profits who support exceptional children in our community: FOCUS - Comfort. Hope. Fun. Equip for Everyday Life (https://focus-ga.org/) and Gigi’s Playhouse Atlanta – Down Syndrome Achievement Center (https://gigisplayhouse.org/atlanta/)


Each grade level will have one disability to focus on. The committee has provided the teachers with videos, books and activities to help further understanding and inclusion of their differently-abled peers.

K - Visual impairment

1st - Orthopedically impaired

2nd - Deaf and hard of hearing

3rd - Learning Disabilities/Dyslexia/ Dysgraphia

4th - Autism

5th - Down Syndrome/ Intellectual disability


Have fun and have great conversations with your students. We are all more alike than different.
