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.
THANK YOU

Thank you to Better Air Design LLC, Pablo Guerrero, and Craig Cox for all their hard work installing the Heat/AC mini-split units in our Kindergarten and 4th grade classrooms as well as in the administrative office. This school improvement has been much needed. We are so thankful to be warm and cozy in our rooms!

A LOOK INSIDE THE CLASSROOM

Mrs. Sytsma's 1st Grade
MCS 1st Graders are awesome!

Together Mrs. Sytsma's first graders read an astounding 18,000 words! That is quite the accomplishment.

To celebrate reaching such an amazing accomplishment the students brought in blanks and pillows to build fun little forts at their desks. They then spent some time hanging out in their forts and reading.

The next TAPP meeting has been rescheduled to Thursday, February 18th. If you are interested in attending the meeting it will be held at 3:15pm in the school library.

FRIENDLY REMINDER ABOUT ILLNESSES

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.
UPDATED SCHOOL CALENDAR

We have made some updates to the school calendar.

FREE & EASY WAYS TO HELP THE SCHOOL

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!)
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."
