MCA Weekly Wrap-Up!

Primary & KinderPrep Family News - Sept. 7, 2018

Dear Families,

We have had another wonderful, very busy week at MCA! Our classes are having fun preparing for Grandparents' Day next Monday! We look forward to seeing elementary grandparents at 1:30 in the gym, and preschool grandparents earlier in the morning in their classrooms. We will have some goodies and presentations for all of the grandparents (or grand-persons) who join us that day!

We had a very special guest in our elementary chapels today- Pastor Enosh, who ministers at a Children's Home in India. We were blessed to hear about how God has used our meager offerings to help children across the world learn that Jesus loves them!

There is a lot going on in the next few weeks, so make sure you take a look at all the info in the newsletter today! We want everyone to be able to join in the fun! Have a wonderful weekend with your families!

Homecoming Spirit Week Info!

Please see the info from Rachel Baumler, our elementary BOT coordinator:

Hi everyone! Homecoming is just a week from today and we are so excited for all the festivities! It is our goal to include as many elementary students in these events, so mark your calendars.

Next Wednesday- Friday your children will have some fun opportunities to express themselves in what they wear to school. These may be casual days IF your child is participating in the theme of that day. We ask that you keep it clean and remember that we represent Christ, yet let your kids have fun with it. (no make up, face paint or hair color)

Wednesday- Favorite Kansas City Sports Team day (jerseys, shorts, hats, etc.)

Thursday- Crazy Clash day (as crazy as you can get!)

Friday- MCA school spirit day (any MCA shirt and or anything green, black and white)

We hope you can all join in! Today you will also receive a flyer with more information on the bonfire, soccer game and football game. Come ready to cheer on you Maranatha Eagles!

Parents in Prayer

This week we prayed for the school, sports, activities and the Pre-k Red room. We prayed for them by name, lifted up their teacher, prayed for their safety, spiritual growth, and the love of learning. Come join us next week to lift our school, staff, and classrooms up to the One who knows and cares for them best. Thursday morning 8:10-8:30 in room 209 at the North Campus.
