Traditions are part of what make MCS special. From our whole school community annual traditions of Mayfest and skating on the green, to traditions in each of our grades that students look forward to being part of as they move from grade to grade.
Bike to school day is a PTO organized event that takes place twice a year, in the fall and the spring. With the coordination of PTO volunteers and the Norwich Police Department, Main Street is closed as MCS students and parents bike from Huntley Meadows to Marion Cross School.
Bike to School October 2021
HERE is the video (I am so excited for you guys to see this!!) It is also super special, because it does not just follow the kids on Norwich roads but also has the (last year) 6th graders song as the background music. (A little explanation for this: Travis Ramsey asked the 6th graders to write songs last year as their music projects. Then these songs made it to Tuck Stocking of Tuck's Rock Dojo, who recorded these songs for them. This is one of 8 songs they wrote, and its called : Two) - Kata Sasvari, MCS Parent
It's worth seeing, if you are able; and you are welcome. You couldn't ask for a better opportunity.
For acknowledging the joy of life through
Every dance, every song, every drop of rain, every chance to celebrate
Sweetness and community.
While much of the students' learning happens in classes or individually, some of it occurs when we gather as a bigger group, and at MCS that bigger group often convenes as Rep. REP, short for “repertoire,” is an all-school sharing time held on Thursdays from 2:15 PM to 3:00 PM. Rep is our opportunity to gather as a whole school to celebrate ideas and talents and risk-taking.
In this informal performance setting, children and adults present instrumental and vocal music, poetry, stories, plays, skits, dance routines, magic tricks, and gymnastic demonstrations. Much of the shared work is organized and rehearsed by the students. It is a valued time in the life of the school community and parents are invited to attend.
