Re-enrollment for current students is underway!
If you are interested in re-enrolling your student, we strongly recommend you do so before open enrollment starts. Enrollment is a “first come, first serve” basis and we can not reserve a space without registration paperwork and payment. We have enrollment paperwork available to pick up in the office.

Enrollment for new families will open on March 1. New family enrollment is also considered on a “first come, first serve” basis.

Please bring your box tops in by Friday, February 26th. The Box Tops for Education program is just another way we are able to help raise funds for our school. You can find Box Tops on popular items such as Cheerios, Betty Crocker and Pillsbury items, Kleenex and many more. Check your cupboards, cut the box tops out, bring them by the school and we will do the rest. Thanks for your support!

Mrs. Bailly 2nd Grade
Wow! The Apex Team, MCS students, families, and friends, truly blessed the school. The 2nd grade set goals and voted on class fun to celebrate reaching their goals.
The results were in... check out some of the fun we had celebrating the goals reached in 2nd grade.
Yoda taught class, extra recess, pajama day, popcorn, game time, and a movie. The snow was an exciting addition to the extra recess time and the Mars landing of Perseverance, was an amazing event to watch!

We know there is a lot of information out regarding what you need to do if you have been exposed to or infected with COVID 19.

It is our school policy that if anyone in your household has been exposed to the virus and/or is being tested, we ask all students to stay home until a negative test result is received. Should anyone in your household receive a positive test result, we ask all students to stay home for the 10/14 days that your doctor has specified.

To do our part, we will continue taking temperatures before your student enters the school and ask that if your student has any of the following symptoms, please keep them home.
  • Temperature above 100.2 (without the use of a fever reducing medication)*
  • coughing
  • shortness of breath
  • headache
  • sore throat
  • muscle or body aches
  • loss of taste or smell
  • congestion
  • nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea*

*Note: Any family members that have fevers and/or vomiting, we ask that you keep all students home for 48 hours after the symptoms have subsided.

We have made some updates to the school calendar.


RXfundraising and Rite Aid are willing to give a portion of every dollar spent on prescriptions and purchases made at Rite Aid to support our school.
This program is similar to the Amazon Smile and Fred Meyer Rewards fundraising that we are currently involved with. If you happen to use Rite-Aid for your pharmacy (or if you’ve been considering switching to Rite-Aid) you can attach our school to your rewards card and a portion of your purchases will be donated back to the school. The link below contains the simple, straightforward instructions you will need to get started.

MATCHING CONTRIBUTIONS: Does the company you work for (Boeing, Microsoft, etc.) match contributions you make to a non-profit company? Take a moment to find out. When you donate money to the school for a fundraiser or any other reason, follow your company's system to record it and designate MCS to receive matching funds! (If someone you know works at a participating company, they can also designate MCS!)

Because kids are spending much more time at home than before, there is a much greater opportunity for conflict to arise between siblings. Parents during these times are faced with many new challenges—and sibling conflict is one of them.
When it comes to sibling conflict, it’s very common for all of us to focus on the wrong problem—their relationship with each other rather than our relationship with each of them.
Healthy parent-child relationships are characterized by two things. First, the child needs to feel unconditionally loved. Second, the child must see their parents as the undisputed authority figures in the home.
People who care enough to study Love and Logic materials (such as this tip) rarely have an issue with the “love” part of this equation. It comes naturally! The part that they struggle with is the authority part, which I struggle with as well!
Perhaps it’s helpful to remember that when we provide strong leadership and not just friendship, we will see:
Happier kids who tend to get along far better with us.
More secure kids who have fewer conflicts with each other.
Kids who respect us enough to stop arguing with each other when we ask, “Guys? Will you stop that, please?”
When we display relational weakness, chronic sibling conflict is a sure result.
Kids almost always fight with each other more when
they lack consistent and loving limits.
Too frequently, all of us slip into the habit of addressing symptoms rather than core causes. When we do so, we find ourselves endlessly spinning our wheels, dealing with recurring symptoms, or discovering new symptoms that continuously erupt in new and unpredictable ways. Real and lasting solutions to recurring family issues involve taking strategic steps toward reestablishing loving authority in the home. The first step involves asking the following questions:
Are we setting enough limits that can be enforced?
Are we enforcing these limits with empathy and logical consequences rather than trying to do so with empty threats and lectures?
Are the kids able to manipulate us, their parents, against each other?
Are we trying too hard to be their friends rather than focusing on remaining friendly authority figures?
We hope that this tip will help you get at the root of sibling conflict and sibling rivalry. For additional insights, listen to our audio, Sibling Rivalry: Teaching Your Kids how to Get Along.
Thanks for reading! Our goal is to help as many families as possible.

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."
