New School Year

Good afternoon and Happy Monday!

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!

As we count down to the start of our school year, here are a few reminders before our first official day on Wednesday, September 4th. If you have not yet done so, please fill out the 2019-2020 Emergency Contact form that Jamie emailed to you and bring it in to school by Tuesday, September 3rd. We absolutely must have this form in hand for your child’s first day. We also need a signed copy of the Medication Permission slip. Staff are busy setting up classrooms this week, so please feel free to come by and drop off paperwork!

The next tuition payment for the 2019-2020 school year is due September 1, 2019. Jamie posted the tuition today; it will be reflected in the ledger balance portion of your account. If you need help accessing your EZCare account, please contact Jamie or Cathy at 610-777-3080.

Student orientation is taking place on Tuesday, September 3rd. Each student should have received a postcard from their teachers, indicating a block of time to come visit the classroom, as well as a small list of items you should bring to school. If you did not receive your postcard, please let us know and we will get you the information ASAP. If there is anything we can do for you before the school year officially begins, please do not hesitate to contact us via email at or by phone at 610-777-3080. Thank you and have a great rest of your day!

Usborne Book Fair

Our Usborne Book Fair week begins on Monday, April 29th. This is also the week of Donuts with Dads, Muffins with Moms, and Family Fun Nights – it’s going to be a busy one! Below is a message from Kourtney Phillips, our Usborne Book Fair coordinator and consultant:

Hi! I have included a link that parents can order online if they are unable to make the book fair. Remember for free shipping they must select ship with organization.

Usborne Book Fair Week

  April continues to fly by, and we are fast approaching our all-encompassing Usborne Book Fair week (Family Fun Nights, Muffins with Moms, Donuts with Dads!)  Hard copies of the flyer were placed in cubbies to go home, and I’m also attaching a PDF copy of the flyer to this email.  Please let me know if you have any questions, thank you and have a great day.  Enjoy the sunshine!

Welcome Spring

We first and foremost want to say thank you to our PSO for the fantastic job they did planning Grandparents’ Days! We hope everyone had a fabulous time, and we loved seeing the looks of pure joy on the faces of our students – and their grandparents! – all day.

A few reminders as spring settles in:
* Please label all spring jackets. We are only now remembering which winter jacket belongs to each child, just in time for the weather to turn!
* Please send in a warmer weather set of extra clothes; teachers will send home the winter set of extra clothes.
* Please send your child to school in shoes they are safely able to run and jump and play in. We are spending more time outside on the playground.

Thank you!
