July News from MCES

Happy 4th of July!

We hope you have a very happy and relaxing Independence Day Weekend!


Lord God Almighty, in whose name the founders of this country won liberty for themselves and for us, and lit the torch of freedom for nations then unborn: Grant that we and all the people of this land may have the grace to maintain our liberties in righteousness and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
Amen.

Back to School Picnics

We are in need of several families at each campus to take the lead as MCES Parent Ambassadors to:

  • Help organize the Sign Up Genius for the Potluck Items

  • Plan some age-appropriate activities for the children at the picnics

  • Help greet families at the picnics and be a support person to new MCES families.

If you would be willing to assist as a Parent Ambassador, please fill out the following form: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E094BABAE29A5F58-20192020


Please mark your calendars for the following dates! We will be having campus-based Back-to-School Potluck Picnics at each campus, bringing together the whole community across several grades. Each family will be asked to bring something to share, there will be fun, age-appropriate activities, and plenty of time for children and parents alike to socialize.

  • Young 5s, Kindergarten & 1st Grade: Tuesday, August 13, 5:30-7:00 pm in St. Michael Gym
