Boots & BBQ is a casually themed event featuring delicious food, complimentary craft beer tastings, silent auction, raffle prizes, and live musical entertainment from Shadowood. Last year’s Boots & BBQ event raised an overwhelming $28,000 for the Alexis Jarrett Memorial Playground! We are excited to be hosting this year’s event at Pontoon Brewing and we expect 250 attendees. 100% of the proceeds from Boots & BBQ will benefit MDE School and it’s students by going towards the MDE School arts and enrichment programs.
MDE School is proud to be celebrating its 11th academic year and serves 54 students with special needs. MDE is an accredited school that aims to maximize students’ academic potential by offering individualized academic plans, as well as, enrichment programs, adaptive PE, music, art, drama, field trips, clubs, and life skills. We serve K-12 children with special needs who have varying disabilities, including but not limited to, Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, communication disorders, and learning differences.
OUR MISSION AND VISION:
The mission of MDE School is to provide a loving environment for all children with delayed communication and language processing skills, while keeping a 4-1 ratio. We believe that all children should be given the opportunity to learn in a child-directed, developmentally appropriate environment, where learning takes place in a meaningful and natural manner. Each child’s self-worth and self-confidence is highly regarded as we foster the development of healthy, self-assured individuals. Children experience dedicated, loving and compassionate educators to guide them to achieve their maximum potential.
MDE School successfully serves children with special needs who cannot be served in a traditional educational setting. Parents often enroll their child at MDE out of necessity. MDE serves children with varying diagnoses including Autism, Down Syndrome and other learning differences. We offer individualized academics, adaptive PE, music, art, drama, enrichment programs, life skills, clubs and field trips so our students can fully experience a complete educational environment.
MDE was started by Mindy Elkan in memory of her husband Marc David Elkan (MDE) who suddenly passed away 11 years ago on August 16, 2008. Mindy was inspired to continue his legacy by establishing a school for children who learn differently.
MDE has been uniquely serving children with special needs for 11 years and is the only school of its kind for children with special needs who learn differently in Cobb county. Through our whole-person approach to learning, we are able to address their academic, social, developmental, cognitive and physical goals allowing our students to maximize their potential. Since its inception, MDE school has grown from 3 to 54 students.
