Greetings Families, 
Welcome Back Everyone! 
I am so excited for the new school year! We have some wonderful programs and new faces joining us. I know it is going to be a fantastic year. To get the year rolling here is some important information: 


It’s time to start planning your future goals. Senior meetings will take place at the start of the year. Parents and guardians, if you are interested in participating in planning meetings I invite you to call or email me to arrange a meeting time. 

Some things to start thinking about: 

  • What are your goals?
    College? Employment? Trades? 
  • Where do you want to be?
    Cities? Rural areas? Near home? Far from home? 
  • What do you need to reach your goals? Transportation? Scholarships? Financial Aid?

Activity Period

The staff at MCS has been working very hard to bring the activity period back for all secondary students. Activity period is a free period that students may utilize for clubs, activities, free time, and special events. Activity period is available to anyone who is academic  and attendance eligible; meaning you are not failing more than one class and you do not have any unexcused absences. We encourage you to use your time wisely and work hard so you can enjoy the activity period perks. 

I am pleased to let you know we will be continuing our Positive Behavior Instruction and Support (PBIS) program this year. At MCS we value Responsibility, Respect, and Resilience. Students who embody these traits are recognized and rewarded through our Irish Buck drawings throughout the year. 

Students in grades 7-12 will be earning Shamrocks. Shamrocks are given to students who go above and beyond to demonstrate Responsibility, Respect and Resilience. I am so excited to keep the Shamrock system going this year. I have lots of prizes, so go get those Shamrocks!
