From time to time many of you have asked what specifically the school is in need of.

We’ve received $500 from a Corporate Sponsor but we are  $1,000 away from our goal

We would like to purchase a software program called procare that could be used for both our Extended Day, Camps and Little Angels programs.  This program would enable parents to easily sign their children in and out with a quick click of a button.  Billing is done directly from this system which saves our teachers a lot of time and paperwork as they have to spend a lot of time doing this manually.  Having this in place makes things convenient and accurate for our parents and most importantly helps our teachers who are already doing so much.   If you are interested in helping us reach our goal, please contact Sara Marshall in the Advancement Office smarshall@monsignorclarkeschool.org

 

Attention MCS Alum....Leave your Legacy
Through the purchase of a tile, you help support Msgr. Clarke’s initiatives and create a lasting legacy to come back and see every time you visit. Personalized tiles will be enjoyed by visitors, teachers, students, friends and family each and every day for many years to come.  Every year each graduating 8th grade student designs their own tile.  MCS Alumni can now order online!!
