PIZZA DAY

Friday is the first Pizza Day of the semester.

Have you signed your student up for the second semester pizza days? If not, there's still time. Each lunch is served with one or two slices of pizza, cookies, and a Capri Sun. You can choose either cheese of pepperoni pizza. To sign your student up for the remaining pizza days, simply stop by the office.
RE-ENROLLMENT

Re-enrollment for current families will open on January 18th.
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.

Open enrollment for new families will start on February 1st. New family enrollment is also considered on a “first come, first serve” basis.
COVID PROCEDURE

  1. Please notify the office if anyone in your family has tested positive. 
  2. We will discretely notify the teacher.
  3. The teacher will email the notice to each of the parents in the classroom.
  4. The office will then give each teacher a hard copy for the students to place in their backpack to take home.
  5. If you have any questions, please contact the office.
  6. Do not assume that if a student is missing from the class that this is the reason, they are absent.
  7. We have had tremendous transparency and support. We want this to continue.
MCS APPAREL AND ACCESSORIES

Make it a great start to the new year by treating yourself (and your family) to some cozy MCS apparel. Support the school and keep warm at the same time. Use this link MCS Apparel and Accessories to check out all the great items that are available. Find something you like, place your order , and it will be sent directly to you.
RECESS DUTY
 
If you have some free time and would like to volunteer, recess duty is great way to help.
 
  • The purpose of Recess Duty is to keep our children safe while they are enjoying fresh air and getting some exercise.
  • Another benefit is that this allows teachers much-needed time to regroup and prepare for the next classroom session of the day.
  • You will earn DOUBLE volunteer service hours when you help with recess duty!
 
The following link will allow you to sign up for recess duty on any of the available day(s)/time(s). Please feel free to sign up for any times that you can commit to volunteering. 
MOMS IN PRAYER

We understand schedule constraints so please feel free to come when you are able.
We look forward to meeting you and praying with you!
