It was truly a joy to welcome parents to our all-school chapel on the field this past Monday! Our 8th Grade Worship team led us in our singing worship that framed our time of thankfulness. Mrs. Harrison shared how sunflowers grow and rotate to face the sun throughout the day as a great illustration of how we are to face the SON! 
MCS Families are invited to come and enjoy LUNCH on the LAWN with their MCS student(s) and other MCS families during an all school lunchtime.

Parents should enter the field through the BACK carpool gate.

What if we cannot come to the lunch? 
Grandparents and special family friends are also invited to attend. Any students who do not have guests attending are invited to join their teacher or other friends as all will eat on the lawn. 

What Should I Bring? 
Chairs, blankets, and lunch for your family.

Do you remember being new to MCS? Do you have a heart for hospitality? The Admissions Department is looking to build a team of parents that would like to help welcome our new families over the summer. We are looking for two to three boy and girl families from each grade to host two playdates over the summer, and help support our Parent Orientation Dinner and Elementary Field Day in late August. If this feels like something you would like to be part of, or would just like more information, please complete the interest form here, and we will connect with you within the next week.

Today was the culmination of our final Homeroom Competition of the year...The Mary Fila Volleyball Classic! Last week each grade level had a mini-tournament to determine the grade level Champ. Congrats to 6B, 7K, and 8T who were grade level champs! In the playoff round, 7K came out victorious and earned the right to play the staff team in the MFVC finale! Mrs. Fila...the woman, the myth, the legend was in attendance for the big game! She dominated this tournament, going undefeated for 8 years before retiring as 8th Grade Science Teacher...thus becoming the namesake of the tournament. In today's final matchup, 7K gave a valiant effort and made some big plays, but it wasn't enough to fend off the staff team. It was a great event, and we are already looking forward to next year's tourney!
