MCS Students and Community Begin Rachel's Challenge
On November 4th, MCS students and community were inspired by the true life story of one girl's dream to change the world. Rachel Joy Scott was a remarkable 17 year-old who became the first victim of the Columbine High School Shootings. This tragedy, which occurred in 1999, claimed the lives of 12 students and a teacher, as well as both perpetrators. Learning about the life and legacy of this young woman through her journal entries and other writings, students, faculty, staff, parents, and community members became empowered to take her challenge--"To Create a Chain Reaction" This program, entitled, Rachel’s Challenge, equips students to bring forth a positive change to their school and to their community in small, but noticeable, ways. This program is provided to school districts by a national non-profit organization dedicated to creating safe, connected school environments where learning and teaching are maximized. Rachel's Challenge provides a continual improvement process for schools designed to awaken the learner in every child. Return to our website to see how MCS students, faculty, staff and community members have honored Rachel Scott and accepted her challenge.

This year, NYS FCCLA has partnered up with Maddie's Markto sew elephants for the Maddie's Elephants program.FCCLA has already obtained the pattern and began cutting out elephants, with the end goal of making 20 elephants for children diagnosed with cancer. The MCS FACS classroom but may run out pretty quickly. These elephants are hand made by a volunteer using donated materials so this is where they need help. They need donated materials (fabric and thread). Ideally they would like to work with cotton material which is the easiest to use but they accept any donations as they can make them work. Read more about this project on its official website.
