Each child's safety and welfare is of the greatest importance. Consistent communication between home and school is essential to promote the best interests of your child and all children attending MCC Elementary School. I encourage you to become involved and to contact your child's teacher or myself if you have any questions or comments throughout the year. I hope you are all enjoying our web-site at This site, updated on a daily basis, is an excellent communication tool for parents. You can log into your account to check your student’s progress reports, attendance and lunch account balances.
