We Are Here to Support Your Family During Remote Learning
Today's announcement that students will not return to school this year was not a shock and we know that it was made in the best interest of our students. However, it is also a sad time for our MACS family because we miss our students. Our main purpose for serving as educators is to serve our students in ways that will empower them for lifelong learning. Please know that your families are a part of our MACS family and we miss you. We are here to support in any way possible.
We know that supporting your child's remote learning can be a struggle and some families may be frustrated. If this is happening for your family, begin with contacting your child's teacher. As a district, we are committed to providing you with up-to-date resources, ideas for at home learning and ways to keep your child engaged in the learning process.
We have also developed a new Learning Support for Families Google doc, this will be published on our MACS website as well.
Did You Know It is Teacher Appreciation Week?
Now more than ever, we must maintain a strong partnership and continue to strengthen relationships. Families are serving their kids education in new ways from home with support from our teachers. We also remember and appreciate our parents, as they are a child's first and most important teacher in life. Thank you for all you are doing MACS families! We appreciate you and your time devoted to helping us celebrate our #MACSawesome teachers.
Check out some of the videos below, which were made by our fantastic Public Information Officer, Carrie Venable and YOU! Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to ALL!

21st Century- Future Leaders Academy (FLA) Programming Continues Remotely
Each week our FLA teachers will be sharing resources here to support our students during the COVID-19 school closure. Check out the first ones below and remember this is totally OPTIONAL for our students and families. The regular school day work should be the priority and these resources will serve as enrichment.
For any FLA student that works with Lexercise you will be served by 1 of your Lexercise teachers (Ms. Wertman or Mrs. Martin @Jones/ Mrs. Worrell @BHT).
