Every year, the MCS administration team and Board conducts a parent survey to gather feedback regarding achievement of mission, core values, and progress across all areas. This input is highly valued and used to inform decisions as we continually and prayerfully endeavor to grow and improve. Your role in our efforts to provide students with the very best Christian education is vital! We ask that you take a few minutes to complete the attached survey. 100% participation is desired!

Please complete the survey by Sunday, May 31.

Thank you for your constant support and partnership and thank you in advance for your participation in this important survey. 
Have A Great Summer!

Digital Yearbook Signing
We are excited to announce that the MCS yearbook signing tradition is alive and it’s fully digital! 

Jostens has just launched a new platform, Yearbook Digital Signing Pages, that gives every student the chance to create virtual signing pages, invite their friends to leave messages, and print out the final pages to keep with the yearbook as a permanent keepsake.This is free for every student.

Please note that this digital signing program is hosted by Jostens, and family participation is not required or expected. It is a family choice to make a digital yearbook page, and families should guide and monitor their students if they choose to use this feature. 

Register an account for your student at yearbooksigning.jostens.com to help them get started collecting messages!
