Label all items coming to school

Nothing says “It’s October” like 90 degree weather! When this heat wave passes, we want to remind everyone, especially our students who are here for AM daycare, to please send in cooler weather outerwear. AM daycare students play on the playground, weather permitting, and there is still a bit of a chill in the air during the early morning hours.

Please remember to label all items coming to school. We are at the stage where we can finally identify the late-summer jackets/sweaters, just in time for the fall jackets to make their arrival! Thank you!

Back to School picnic

Remember to RSVP to the Back to School picnic by Thursday, October 3rd! Lots of delicious food, a nice big playground for all of the kids, and getting to spend time with the amazing families in our MCDS community – it’s a great way to spend Sunday afternoon!

First Week of School

We want to say thank you to all of our parents/guardians for a wonderful first week of school! It was busy busy busy, but also a huge success. We appreciate every ounce of trust that you’ve placed in us to care and educate your children. Thank you! And now, a few notes. . .

Our first PSO (Parent Support Organization) meeting of the school year is this coming Tuesday, September 10th at 6:30PM at the school. Joining the PSO is a great way to meet other parents while providing support for special activities that your children enjoy throughout the year. We hope that you are able to join us for our kickoff meeting next week. If you have any questions, you can contact our PSO Coordinator, Traci Papst (her email is listed on the PSO volunteer sheet that was sent home) or us here at the school!

Please remember that arrival time does not begin until 8:45AM when dropping off your children in the morning. If you arrive before 8:45 and are not signed up for AM care, you will have to wait until 8:45 when staff is ready for arrivals. We are still getting classrooms ready up until that time.

During afternoon dismissals, we have a large volume of students being dismissed from the front of the building. It has been very congested right around 3:45 so we are asking for your continued patience as we work through the process!

Thank you for your ongoing support and have a great weekend

First Day of School

We are so excited for our first day of school tomorrow! Please know that we are here for you as you go through a spectrum of emotions when you drop your little ones off for their first day. We have loads of tissues and a lot of love for both you and your children!

It’s going to be a great year and we are so happy that you are a part of our MCDS family. Here we go!
