From the Principals Desk

   As I look at the calendar I feel the spark of anticipation (sans fear) that comes with the end of the year activities!  There is much left to do and little time left to do it in!  I will address end of school activities next month, but would like to remind you that we begin our final round of testing next Monday.  I am happy to report that due to parents communicating trips, we were able to test ALL MCMS students in the first round of PARCC!  Job well done!   We ask that you please notify the office if you will be taking your student out for an extended time this spring.  Our testing schedule begins the week of April 27-30 with the 8th graders; followed the next week by the 7th graders from May 1-6.  Testing breaks for student led conferences and school improvement, then finishes with 6th grade dates on May 11, 13, 14 and 18.

   Also, this is one final call for our families to take some time together for our community Color Run on May 16th.  In order to guarantee your shirts, please sign up on or before April 25th.  Boosters will take entries up to and including race day, but the shirts are fun and designed to hold the color.  See you there!   Mrs. Beam, MCMS Principal


The MCMS and MCHS Booster Clubs are hosting a community 5K Color-A-Thon on Saturday, May 16th at 9:00 a.m.  The color run will raise funds to enhance and expand our athletics programs.  Come and enjoy a fun, colorful day with family and friends.  The event will end with a Color Blast After Party-Music, Prizes and loads of COLOR!!
