We sure love our MCCV volunteers! This is just a reminder.

Upon arrival at school, all volunteers please check in at the office. Please sign in and pick up your volunteer badge. Wear your badge at all times while you are on campus. It is important to come to the office, sign out, and return your badge before you leave the campus. This helps us know who is on our site, should we need to contact you or look for you in the event of an evacuation emergency.

Thank you!

This fundraiser for the 8th grade trip will include a tour of the haunted classrooms, a spine-chilling bake sale, eerie activities and creepy crafts and games. Come and pick up a pumpkin to take home and 'Franken-weinies' (hot dogs) will be served as well.

The event has been scheduled for two different times with two different 'spooky' levels:
