A Message from the Administrator
Greetings MCS Families,
Our Winter Showcase is a time for our community to see the exciting things that are happening at MCS. We will have classroom displays, the chance to go on a virtual field trip with our new Google Expedition Kits, a performance by our Merry Missives, and a chili dinner that will support our Marimba Club and our students going to MOSS. You will also have the opportunity of walking through classrooms that your child may be in next year.
Feel free to invite any friends and/or family that may be interested in MCS. I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday evening!

Polar Walk 2018
This is a fun event that helps kids and parents overcome the challenges of active travel in the winter time by bundling up and walking to school. It is unique to Moscow and the Safe Routes to School program. This event is called the “Polar Walk” not only because it’s chilly in February but also to help raise awareness of the environmental impact of CO2 emissions from cars and it’s effect on the polar ice caps.
Come walk with us on this day!
