There it is sitting on my desk. A ring in all its glittery beauty. You know, the kind of ring that little girls love to wear. It is silver in color with a great big plastic green stone. Its earthy value is little, but it represents so much more. In fact, this ring is extra special. This ring represents hope and expectation.

The little girl who brought it in wanted to make sure that this treasure gets added to the dress-up box in the Pre-Kindergarten classroom. She was all smiles as she presented this prize to me. In addition to dropping off the ring, she stopped in to pay tuition. Her little purse full of quarters. I hope you are imagining a big smile with a sincere heart that was bubbling over with joy. This little one is ready for school to begin!

Today as I work my way through the paper work and phone calls of the day, this little ring reminds me of a day soon when we get back to the business of listening to stories, hearing hearts, learning, and spending time with your children, our students. I have sincerely missed the best part of school, the students. See you soon! That sounds so good.

For our synchronous learners, we are looking forward to seeing you every day too!

One of the best resources for helping to fill our school with students is YOU. YOU can spread the word about what makes MCS such an outstanding choice! We are continually offering the Family Referral Program! Take advantage of this opportunity to receive a tuition credit for each new family you bring to Monroe Christian School!

Referring families will receive a $500 tuition credit (2020-2021 school year) for K-8th grade students or a $250 tuition credit for Preschool and Pre-K referrals. New families that have been referred will receive free registration for the upcoming school year.

Please be reminded that for the 2020-2021 school year, Monroe Christian School will be using a new school management system MySchoolWorx (MSW). This system will provide parents with online access to your student's teachers, grades, assignments, classroom activities, school-wide events and more.

Our scripture theme for this year is based on Hebrews 11:1-3
"Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible."
