Principal's Corner

Spring Fever has hit and we love this warm weather! We are wrapping out our sap collection and are excited to see many of you at our Community Pancake Breakfast this Sunday, April 16th to celebrate the end of our season! There is less than 7 weeks of school left and we have so many fun opportunities ahead of us and so much learning left to do! Check out all the important dates below for all the upcoming events!

We Made the News!

Maple Syrup Collecting - Extra Clothes!

We are in full spring mode with mud and water! Please have a spare set of clothes (socks included!) for your learners of all ages as we are noticing all learners are getting muddy and/or wet and have no extra clothes! Mud boots are super helpful! Thank you!

Open House Review

A HUGE thank you to everyone who volunteered with the soup in the kitchen, at the hot chocolate bar, at the bonfire, face painting and with tours. MGCS is so lucky to have helpful adults that help grow our school.

Our Application is still open and we are still encouraging parents to apply and ask questions about our local, environmental school. ❤
