Welcome Back!  We hope that everyone had a wonderful winter break and are now ready to head into the second semester of the 2019-2020 school year and a new decade!  

We welcomed more students and staff members to our MCC team in January.  It is always exciting to meet new people, but change can also be challenging.  We welcome you to share any concerns or questions that your students ask as we continue to learn and grow together.

Goal Setting Opportunities!

The new year brings time to reflect on previous goals and create new ones.  As we begin second semester, remember to encourage your child to set goals, take time to ask them about their progress on the goals daily, and help them reach the goals they have set.


We will continue to go outside for recess as often as the weather allows.  Please help your child dress appropriately for the weather elements!

Educator and Employee of the Year!
