MCA Weekly Wrap-Up!

Primary & KinderPrep Family News - Sept. 21, 2018

Dear Families,

It seems like maybe this was our last week of summer weather! We can anticipate a little more fall-like weather next week! Please help your child remember to wear a jacket or sweater as the weather gets cooler.

This week we practiced doing a fire drill at both campuses, and our students and teachers did a great job! They listened and followed directions, and completed our first drill of the year very speedily! We will have monthly drills for the rest of the year to continue to improve.

Please make sure you read the important note below from the auction committee. They have been working so hard to prepare for the Legacy Auction, and it is going to be a wonderful time of fellowship and a time to give back to the school. I encourage you to buy tickets and bring a few friends for this special night with our MCA family!

There is a lot going on in October, so make sure you are looking ahead at the calendar! Parent-Teacher Conferences and Fall Parties will be here before we know it! It's going to be a wonderful fall at MCA!


Mrs. Howell

An Invitation from Parents in Prayer

Parents in Prayer invites all to come pray with other us any or every Thursday morning from 8:10-8:30 in room 209. This week we lifted up Mrs. Howell as she prepares for some doctorate exams this weekend. We praised God for an amazing Homecoming weekend and asked for all details of the auction to be covered in prayer and executed with excellence. We also prayed for the preschool Yellow room. Next week we will pray over the Blue room. What an incredible privilege it is to take all our needs to Him in prayer.

We need you!

We have several opportunities for volunteers to serve at the school on both campuses! If you would like to help out in the lunchroom as a supervisor, supporting teachers in the classrooms, or in many other ways, please let me know and we will get you started with the process! All volunteers at MCA are required to complete a Volunteer Application and submit to a background check.

Box Tops Time!

It’s time to start collecting Box Tops! When you buy products with Box Tops, please clip the Box Top so our school can earn money! You can send your Box Tops to the office at any time throughout the year, however, we will make our first submission on Oct. 15 so get those Box Tops turned in soon! Please make sure they are not expired and they are neatly clipped. We appreciate you helping support our school in this small way! Contact Mrs. Thomas if you have any questions.
