A Message from the Administrator
Greetings MCS Families,
During our Friday Morning Meeting today, we discussed two very exciting topics with our students! First, was the donation of our new “Friendship Bench” and the other was about the upcoming Polar Walk that is happening on Wednesday.
Our new "Friendship Bench" was donated by a MCS grandparent. It has added to our playground area and the purpose/idea behind the bench is to provide a place for students to sit who are looking for someone to talk to or a friend to play with. This encourages other students to invite them to participate in a game or activity. The students already love it and are taking full advantage of it.
The Polar Walk will take place on Wednesday morning and Mrs. Erin Bacon, Director of the Safe Routes to School, spoke with our students this morning about walking safely. She focused on topics including walking to school, being aware of your surroundings, and how to safely cross the street and driveways. This information will be beneficial for our upcoming expansion as we are encouraging more families to walk or find a drop off/pick up point for their students.
MCS students are being sent home today with a travel plan form and a reflector generously donated by Gritman Medical Center. The travel plan form will help families locate/establish the best route for their children as well as coordinating drop off/pick up points. The reflectors can be attached to backpacks and will help students to be seen better. Our long term goal is to build participation of alternative transportation to school!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

MCS Winter Celebration
This is a time for students to bring their families and showcase their work in their classrooms. There will be performances by our dance club, the Merry Missives, and Mr. Bonuccelli will be discussing our upcoming expansion.
Mark your calendars for our Winter Celebration! This fun event will take place on February 13th from 5-7 pm!
The PAT is hosting a family Bingo Night on March 22nd. There will be dinner, a silent auction, bingo games and a live auction! Dinner will be served from 5-6 pm with proceeds from the food sales supporting the kids going to MOSS.
- Volunteers: We are still in need of volunteers! Please sign up at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d48a9ab2baaf58-family
- Location: We need to find a good location for Bingo Night that can host about 100 people, preferably with table and chairs available, access to restrooms, and that does not cost a lot. Ideas/help would be appreciated.
- Donations: Help collecting donations for bingo prizes, silent auction and our live auction would be greatly appreciated. If you would like to help please send me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org so I can give you a copy of the donation letters as well as a link to the document I have created, so we don't contact the same businesses more than once. Last year over 300 businesses was contacted in order to get enough prizes for our Bingo Night and our silent auctions, so we really need help on this.

So far we have prizes from Spokane Comedy Club, Palouse Ice Rink, Escape, Snowhaven Ski & Tubing, Bald Mountain Ski Area, Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre, Lewiston Civic Theatre, Avista Stadium, Westcoast Entertainment and Lake Pend Oreille Cruises just to mention a few. Thank you to our donors, we greatly appreciate your support.
