Hustler Athletics Celebration

On November 17, seniors Tyler Mecchella and Patrick Corley signed their letters of intent to play college baseball. Tyler signed with Eastern Florida State College. Patrick is headed to King University in Bristol, TN. We congratulate these young men, their families, Coach Dooley, and the team!

This signing celebration kicked off our Winter Sports Media Day where coaches and athletes from our basketball and soccer teams took pictures and talked about the season with local media. Go Hustlers!
Senior salute

Senior Night provides an opportunity to recognize and celebrate our senior athletes for all of their hard work and accomplishments. We honored our fall sports seniors on November 4th at Hustler Stadium. Thank you Class of 2022! 
A spot of their own

Seniors let their creative ideas take over while painting their parking spots. They turned our once dull parking lot into a true masterpiece of street art. 
Continuous Improvement Survey

Like last year, we will be working with the Excellence with Integrity Institute ( to implement continuous improvement surveys here at MCC.

In the coming weeks, we will survey students and staff and in January we will survey parents. Each of the surveys is anonymous, takes about 20 minutes to complete online, and gives our key stakeholders the opportunity to share both what works well at MCC and what opportunities we have to improve.

We will open the survey to parents on January 25, 2022, and close it on February 11, 2022.
The AEP advantage

Students at MCC have many opportunities for success. One of them is our Academic Enrichment Period (AEP). Here is how it works. The school is on a 6-day cycle (A through F Day). Each class meets five out of six days in the cycle resulting in one period scheduled as an AEP.  During an AEP, students can seek help from available teachers or use the time to work on assignments or homework.

MCC Anglers are born to fish

The Anglers Club recently met to practice techniques with casting. Members enjoyed a competition for prizes with a casting accuracy event. Later this month, they will put their casting skills to use when they fish the Indian River Lagoon. The group has begun planning for an MCC school-wide student fishing tournament. Look for more details soon. 
Academic and career planning

School counselors begin working with our students before they even step foot on campus as freshmen. Throughout their years at MCC, counselors ensure all students develop an academic and career plan reflecting their interests, abilities, and goals. Sophomores recently completed a career interest inventory in Naviance to discover top matching career options. They were also instructed on how to start the college search process. This week freshmen received an introduction to topics related to Student Services such as Naviance, courses, graduation requirements, resumes, and transcripts.
A deeper look into DBQs
