This meeting is for parents/guardians only. We look forward to seeing you there!
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
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!
We hope everyone is having a wonderful day. We know many of our
alumni, with younger siblings here at MCDS, started at their new schools
this week, and we wish them all the best of luck in this new chapter of
their lives. We hope everyone had a great first day!
