MCA Weekly Wrap-Up!

Primary & KinderPrep Family News - Oct. 5, 2018

Dear Families,

Next week is a very important week at MCA! We have had an amazing team of parents working so hard to prepare for the auction, and all that work will pay off next Saturday when our school will be blessed by the generosity of our community! If you haven't yet purchased your auction tickets, please make sure you buy them online TODAY!

This week I got to spend some time visiting classrooms, and always, I was so blessed to hear teachers speaking God's word and biblical truths to our children, and not just in Bible class! Our chapel speaker this week, Travis Strong, spoke to our students about the opportunity they have to show the love of Christ through our upcoming City Union Mission food drive. Because of the investment you have made in sending your children to Maranatha, they get to live out God's word in action.

Thank you for supporting Christian education, not just at the auction next week, but throughout the year!


Mrs. Howell

Picture Re-takes

Inter-State Photography will be at MCA on Thursday morning, October 18th, for picture re-takes. Forms are in both offices if you are interested in having re-takes done.

Special thanks!

Two of our elementary parents worked the American Royal BBQ fundraiser at the Kansas Speedway and asked for the funds to be distributed to Maranatha.

Miriam Muasya earned $58.50 to be designated to our general elementary fund.

Sara Bryant earned $76.50 to be designated to Kindergarten.

Thank you for your generosity, Miriam and Sara!

An Invitation from Parents in Prayer

Prayer is powerful!! We would love to have more parents come alongside and pray with us on Thursday mornings from 8:10-8:30 in room 209 at the North Campus.

Box Tops Time!

Keep sending in those 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.
