Parents were overjoyed and dressed in their pajamas and some wore coordinating pajamas with their children.  Early Head Start viewed the movie in the cafeteria as a group. Many of the classes at M.E.

On Tuesday, December 13, 2016, the parent and staff kickball event was planned to kickoff at 1:00 p.m., but due to inclement weather, we entertained the boys and girls in the gymnasium of M.E. Lewis Elementary School.  They teamed up and engaged in obstacles course and competed with other groups as well as females against males.  The students and teachers watched from the stands and cheered as their favorite team or teacher scored points.  The women had to pull off their heels and share whatever size tennis shoes were available.  The students were very tickled to see the ladies with the men tennis shoes on.
