Message From The Principal
One thing I believe to be true, especially this school year, is that we can never say thank you enough. On that note, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the gift that showed up in our library atrium this week. Emma Cottage gifted us with over 200 notes of gratitude from families and community members. As I read the messages, it helped remind me of how very fortunate each member of the MCS staff is to work with such a supportive and appreciative community. Thank you for taking the time to spark joy in so many staff members this week with your kind words. They are just what was needed to close out the year.
Some of you have asked about report cards and finding out placement of your children for next school year. Both will be found in one location! Next Friday, June 18th you will receive directions for accessing report cards from the Parent Portal. On the report card there is a spot indicating who will teach your child next school year. Please note that the school board kindly approved the hire of a third second grade teacher for next school year, so there will be a few students going into third grade who will have the spot blank while we search for just the right teacher to join our team. The information you receive will also give you a contact person who can help if you have access questions.
Finally, special thanks to everyone who made the sixth grade celebration a huge success. I believe that COVID might have sent another silver lining our way. Having the celebration outdoors was lovely. Perhaps we will make this a new MCS tradition!
Have a joyful weekend,
Message From Student Services
Happy Spirit Day!… The last Friday of this crazy and wonderful school year.
Yesterday we celebrated our 6th graders and I wanted to share more about the class gift to the school. Below please find the words that Julian and Taliya shared.
“On behalf of the 6th-grade class, we would like to present to you our class gift, a new sign for the Marion Cross School driveway.
We were able to achieve this because of the help and support of parent volunteers, our families, and the Marion Cross School community.
We appreciate your enthusiasm, patience, and energy with our fundraising efforts. This gift will serve as a reminder of our time together at the Marion Cross School.
We also want to thank Ms. Ames for her 26 years of supporting Marion Cross School Students. You could hug a lot of trees in 26 years!
Congratulations MCS class of 2021!!
Have a great weekend!
