            Welcome to the Mary Ethel Costello school family. The MEC experience is filled with challenges, new beginnings, supportive team members and lots of joy.  It’s our goal to enhance all our students’ strengths and develop confident independent learners.  We ask all our parents and guardians to join us this year as we strive for excellence in and out of the classroom.  Character education is an important component in everything we do here at school.  Please be diligent about continuing the “Good Character” conversation at home.  Take advantage of all we have to offer here at MEC by keeping informed about programs, activities and events.  Clear communication is a priority.  Please reference our web page, school calendar, class roll and your child’s agenda book for constant up dates.
