Have a Great Summer MCAA

June 1, 2021

Relax this Summer

As summer begins, we would like to thank you for an amazing, safe school year! The students, teachers, and parents deserve a break! Please encourage your child(red) to unplug and play outside. Our staff, with exception of Dr. Patterson, will not be answering emails until we return for pre-planning (July 26). Thank you for respecting their down time.

Report Cards and Other Important Information

We will be mailing report cards and other important documents on Thursday (6/3). If addresses in ASPEN are not current, the documents will be returned to us and we will contact you.

Milestone (EOG) and MAP scores are updated and loaded in ASPEN under "Assessments". If you have any questions about the scores, please let Dr. Patterson know.

Save the Date: Sneak-A-Peek (August 2)

MCAA's Sneak-A-Peek will be August 2nd at the following times:

9-10am 3rd Grade

10-11am 4th Grade

11-12pm 5th Grade

During the above time noted, parents and students are welcome to come meet their teacher(s), see their classroom(s), get transportation information, and join our PTSA and Foundation.


We are working on a plan to have a collaborative, mentoring program with Marietta Sixth Grade Academy's drama department. Our location gives us the advantage of working with Mr. Josh Waters and his sixth grade participants. We are hopeful that the end product will be an amazing performance by our MCAA Rockets. If you are interested in this club for the 2021-2022 school year, please complete the survey below. Thanks so much!

Science Olympiad Information

The Elementary Science Olympiad (ESO) is the perfect complement to our science program. It supports our normal classroom routine with building, testing, and researching. Elementary Science Olympiad events take advantage of the natural curiosity of each child, and allow for in-depth and hands-on experiences. Science Olympiad tournaments are academic interscholastic competitions consisting of a series of events that students prepare for all year. The events span various science disciplines of life science, earth science and physical science. Each child will become an expert in two event areas. For some events, they will conduct research, study, and prepare to take a paper-pencil test at the competition. Other events are lab events where students will become experts in identifying and classifying. The third type of event is a constructing event where students will be challenged with building and testing a structure or rocket right at the competition.

To apply, students are required to be in 4th or 5th grade. Students will be expected to do a lot of the work at home on their own time. ESO students will need to attend weekly practices after school on Wednesday’s until 5:30pm and Thursday mornings starting at 8am. Team members are expected to be at every practice. As we near the competition in March, more practices will be added. Students will be expected to demonstrate the MCAA Expectations of Excellence at all times and be team players.
