Three MSE 5th graders start every day by writing and delivering the day’s menu, birthdays, weather, Pledge of Allegiance, and announcements.  And all this takes place before school starts at 7:50.  These highly responsible students are the 2019-2020 Morning Show Producers, and they are all business! Thank you to Henry, Ashley, and Alyssa, for starting everyone’s day off right at Maude Saunders!

Paxton Athletics invites everyone to come support the Cats Against Cancer basketball tournament sponsored by Cancer Freeze. All proceeds for this event will be donated to Cancer Freeze and allocated to the Shawn Martell Family. Shawn, whose wife Tiffany is a teacher at Paxton, has been diagnosed with a carcinoid tumor in his colon and will be having surgery soon. Shawn has been in service of our country for 20 years as a Combat Search and Rescue Helicopter maintainer. It is an honor for Paxton Athletics to partner with Cancer Freeze in their efforts to assist this wonderful family and great servant of our country. The schedule for the tournament can be seen here:
