Myrtle Creek Elementary School’s Weekly Newsletter

For the Week of June 10, 2019

From the Principal:

This is my last year at MCE as I have taken a position in Sutherlin.  However, I want to express my appreciation for having the opportunity to work with you and your children.  It is hard to leave the students at MCE behind as they all hold a special place in my heart.  I wish you all well and hope that all of our MCE students are heading for bright and happy futures!
