News from the Principal

Dear Families,

WOW!  What a fabulous week at MCS.   Monday began with a hall walk for the Mt. Abe Girls’ Basketball Team.  They won the Division II State Championship.  Congratulations! What fun to recognize former MCS students: MOLLY MURRAY, JESS MURRAY, CORA FUNKE, EMMA RADLER, and JALEN COOK.  These young woman are certainly magnificent role models for our future sports stars!

On Tuesday, we welcomed our incoming Kindergarten class for registration. We have 19 new students joining MCS this fall.  Since many of these new kindergarten friends have siblings here already, I am certain it will be a smooth transition. Thank you to Sharon Lynch, Carolyn Tatlock, Violet Nichols, Hilary Mack, and Trish MacHarg for their work to make this day such a success!   Thank you families for bringing all of the completed paperwork!!

Also on Tuesday we hosted our Monkton Mentoring Dinner.   Mentors, mentees, and their families enjoyed a wonderful evening of food, fun, and games.  We were so pleased to have such a great turnout for this event.   A photo booth provided the opportunity for super silly pictures!   A special thank you to all of our fabulous mentors who meet with our students each week and provide the gift of their time.   I also wanted to recognize Ms. Carolyn Tatlock, our MCS Mentoring Coordinator, for all of her work to plan and prepare for this event.  Ms. Stacy Carter and Ms. Holly Esterline provided support to make this evening such a success.

Plans are well underway for our Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium testing for students in grades 3-6.   Testing will begin on Tuesday April 3.    Students are encouraged to remember P (positive attitude),   A (act respectfully),  W (work hard), and S (safe choices)  as they give these assessments their absolute best effort.   In order for your child to do his/her best,  please make sure that he or she has  plenty of rest at night and a healthy breakfast to start each day.

On Thursday, March 29, we have an Early Release day.  Teachers at MCS will begin the process of planning for 2018-19.   On Friday, March 30, we have ANESU-wide curriculum work for teachers.   K-2 teachers will be focusing on looking closely at word study.  Our grades 3-4 teachers will be working on science curriculum.   Grades 5-6 teachers will be engaged in mathematics content in the morning and looking at the new science assessment tool in the afternoon.   A very busy two days, for sure!  

Even though there is still snow on the ground, we are planning ahead for our MCS Garden.   Parent volunteers are needed to help with this worthwhile project.  We would like to develop a committee of about 10 people who are interested in supporting the garden.  With this number of people we can share the work!   A Saturday morning work time will help us to prepare the raised beds and the lower garden for planting.  Please contact me if you are interested!

Have a wonderful weekend.
