MCA Weekly Wrap-Up!

Primary & KinderPrep Family News - August 24, 2018

Dear Families,

What a wonderful week it has been at MCA! We had many families come to our Elementary Back to School night for fellowship and to learn about the year ahead at Maranatha. Our "Appy" Hours continue to be a success as more and more of you learn about PowerSchool and using our Outlook email system. Please let us know if there are other technology elements you'd like to learn more about as we plan future "Appy" Hours throughout the year. It was a joy to see so many families participate in this year's Back to School Night- thank you for investing time into learning about your child's classroom and showing them your support and encouragement as we begin a new year!

Today we had a special opportunity in elementary chapel to hear our Head of School, Mrs. Fogh, share her heart about trusting God as she taught from 2 Chronicles. We all had fun saying the name, "Jehoshaphat", too! :) Please remember guests are welcome to participate with us in our chapels- you might see a special visitor in one of the pictures above! Our chapel at the South Campus is Fridays from 1:15-2:00 and at the North Campus from 2:15-2:45.

It is a blessing to teach, learn from, and worship with your children at Maranatha! We are so glad you are part of our Eagle family!


Mrs. Howell
