Message from the Principal
Dear MCS Community,
Celebration was the theme of the week! We had much to celebrate this week. The second grade culminated their unit on immigration with a simulation of the immigrant experience coming to Ellis Island. They spent the day immersed in song and dressed in clothing from the period. A huge thank you to Mrs. Dustin, Mr. Petrone, and the many parent volunteers who made the day a success. Fifth and sixth graders treated their families and the community at the instrumental concert Thursday evening. Their performance was impressive and appreciated by an enthusiastic audience. Appreciations go out to Mr. Ramsey who has spent countless hours teaching instrumental students. Also, it is worth thanking Joy, Mr. Fenton, and Mr. Buck, who work alongside students and demonstrate the values of learning to play an instrument. Finally, the week ended with a whole school celebration to recognize the stellar behavior that has been shown since we returned from December break. The PBIS committee designed a scavenger hunt that had students shooting basketballs, singing The Bells of Norwich, building snowmen, and much more!
I would like to wish you a week filled with opportunities for your family to spend quality time together.
Stay warm and get outside,
