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.

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.
Congratulations 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.
Congratulations to Ms. Asher’s 1st grade class for demonstrating the most acts of kindness in the elementary school for the month of December.
