Dear MCS Families,
It is my distinct pleasure to have served all of you this past year. Collectively, we have weathered two years of pandemic responses and as we are emerging out of that time into a new space, I am hopeful.
I am filled with gratitude for each staff member, student, parent and MCS Foundation Board member. As I reflect my journey over these last 10 months, there are so many faces that fill me with joy. I look back and see those moments of light that have carried me through, a laughing moment from students sharing a morning joke, parents waving enthusiastically from the fence as their child runs in on a cold winter morning, staff shifting to a new, yet familiar space to bring field trips or sports back into our daily lives.
Those moments of light helped us all navigate this last year and have come through the other side with a stronger sense of what really makes MCS our community approach. During our last new parent information night, held virtually on Monday evening, one of our newest parents to MCS said it well when she shared that MCS and the experience her son has had in only a short time is unlike anything they have experienced in any of the other schools they have been a part of.
Our MCS Community is our people, all of you, how we engage with our students, how we interact with the families and how we connect with each other.
Psalms 23:2 says, “He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters.”
I look forward to seeing you all in August and hearing about all the quiet waters you were led to and all the green pastures you rested in.
