End of Year Happenings
A Message from the Administrator
Greetings MCS Families,
What a year it has been! Starting fully remote last Spring to Hybrid this fall and finally to four days a week. Your patience as parents this year has been so appreciated by myself and our staff as we have worked through all of the challenges. It has been interesting to hear a majority of the students say they aren't ready for summer because they don’t want the year to be over. They have been such troopers through all of this and it brings me joy that they do not want to leave. On the other hand I think, for the sanity of our staff, it is probably best to take a break ;) I am really looking forward to a normal school year for 2021-22 year.
I would also like to thank every single member of our amazing staff. Our classroom teachers, our specialty teachers, our aides and office administrative staff. Each one of them has put in so much additional work to make sure that MCS weathered the COVID storm. This school year has had so many changes and they have adapted to provide the absolute best education possible for our students.
Report cards for K-4 will be sent home either today or sent in the mail on Monday. Final grades for 5-8 will be posted on Powerschool. ISAT scores were sent home yesterday with middle school students and 3rd-5th will be sent with their report cards. If you have any questions regarding grades, staff will be here through Friday. It was exciting to see this morning in Idaho Ed Trends that we were one of the Top 10 schools in Idaho with our Fall 2020 reading scores. I look forward to our finalized numbers from ISAT testing. We are looking at doing a Math remediation in August for students that need additional help. More information to come on this.
Lastly, a reminder that if you signed our 'Intent to Return' for next year and you have since found out that you may be moving or are no longer planning to attend MCS for the 21-22 school year please let the office know ASAP. I truly hope we do not lose any of our amazing families, but we know that things change throughout the year and families move out of the area. We currently have 6 spots available in 8th grade for next year. Kindergarten and 1st grade are full but we do not have a waiting list. Word of mouth is always super helpful, so if you know of anyone that may be interested in attending next year, please have them contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Again, I appreciate everything you have done this year to work with us to provide the best education to our students at MCS. Have a wonderful summer!!

Lunch Program Update for the 21-22 School Year
In an attempt to soften the impact for all the students in our community, during the 2021-2022 school year the MCS lunch program will continue to be run by the MSD under the SSO program.
What this means for our students is that free lunch will be available to all students daily, in the same capacity it has been this year. Qualifying for the free and reduced lunch program will have no bearing on the cost of your meal. The free meals will be available Sept - June to all students in attendance at our school.
We are happy to be able to continue to provide our students with these meals as we know this pandemic has affected all the members of our community in some way. This decision has a pretty decent financial impact to the school as we do not have a way to generate revenue for the program to help offset the costs associated with running the program like we do when we are able to run our own program. As a result we are reaching out to see if there are any parents who might be interested in volunteering their time to help serve lunch to our students during our lunch time which would be approximately 1.25-1.5 hrs a day. If you are interested or have any questions regarding our need, please reach out to our business manager Lashelle Wilson- email@example.com. We are looking for 2 parents a day but if we had multiple parents who wanted to help out we could set up a rotation so that you wouldn't have to serve everyday.
