Rachel's Challenge



MCS Students Start a
Chain Reaction:

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" Return to our website to see how MCS students, faculty, staff and community members have honored Rachel Scott and accepted her challenge.

Chain ReactionCongratulations to our November winners for longest Kindness Chain: Ms. Pacheco’s second-grade class! Our FOR Club joined Ms. Pacheco’s class with a celebratory ice cream party for all of the kind acts they displayed. Ms. Smith’s Kindergarten class was our runner-up. Keep displaying those acts of kindness everyone – anyone can be our December winners! You never know what a little kindness can do!

MCS Crop and swim instructor Mrs. Karen Underwood have partnered with the Catskill Recreation Center to host swim meets and practices.
