MCE New Playground Updates...

If you have driven by MCE you probably noticed that the three trees have been taken down in preparation for our new playground in our front lot. The playground construction is slated to begin in August! We will also be planting six new trees to replace the three removed in the area. Watch for updates to come!

We are Looking for Walk-a-Thon Sponsors!

The annual MCE Walk-a-Thon will be held on Thursday, September 28th! We are looking for business sponsors to help us. The funds raised from this event will help us create our MCE STEM lab! The room is ready it's just waiting for all things STEM to come! At MCE we know we are preparing our students today for jobs that haven't been created yet so we want to give them the best opportunities available. If you can help please call Mrs. Theissen at 317-539-9225 or email her at
