Notes from the Principal:

On Monday, March 4, the district will be holding its annual Activity Free Night.  This evening is set aside for families to be free from homework and other events.

The Mike Clemens Center is fortunate  to have committed individuals as a part of our team.  Recently several staff members were recognized by their peers as they were nominated for the Employee of the Year and Educator of the Year.  Kathy Smith and Becca Mundy were then selected to represent the MCC at the district level. Please see the picture of all nominees included within this newsletter.

Our students in grades 3-8 will be participating in MAP assessments this spring.  The window for assessments is April 23-May 23. We will be coordinating our schedules here with several buildings in the district, due to students transitioning.  More information will be sent as it becomes available regarding schedules and needed supplies.
