A Message from MCE's PTO
Hello Mustang families,

As we begin this school year, our MCE PTO is gearing up for new events. If you have ideas to share or are interested in learning about volunteer opportunities, please check out our Facebook Page (MCE PTO) or email We hope to see you there! 

Parent Pick-Up/Drop-Off Reminders

Thank you so much for working with us as we get back in the flow of our Parent Pick-Up and Drop-Off line! You can access the line by heading East on Albert St from Maize Rd, then Left (South) on Khedive St, bringing you to the entrance to the Right (West) on Liberty. To keep things going, we ask that families please stay in their vehicles, allowing only students to exit. Teachers are available to guide them to classes.

We'd like to give a friendly reminder to our MCE families to be neighborly with nearby Maize residents. Please do not block driveways or entrances. We understand that the line can get a bit congested, but if we all work together and give space and consideration we will be able to move more efficiently.

Quick Tip: To avoid losing your student's QR code and speed up the line, take a picture of it on your phone for quick and easy scanning!
