Rebel Pride Fun


MCC Elementary is full of Rebel Pride fun!  Our PBIS Program (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) has a theme this year of “3 R’s Rock Stars”.  We are recognizing our students who show the 3 R’s – Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Ready to Learn.  Students caught displaying these three traits earn Rebel Bucks.  Rebel Bucks are collected weekly from each classroom and students’ names are drawn for special recognition and prizes.  Our students are loving it!

In addition to promoting positive student behaviors, our PBIS Committee is working to create a positive school atmosphere.  We celebrated Thanksgiving with some turkey bowling.  The kids had a lot of fun and got VERY loud!  As Christmas approaches, we will have Christmas Spirit dress up days.  The staff Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest is always fun, with students choosing the winner.  We will be having Christmas Kindness Days during the last week before break.  Students will be making Christmas cards which will be distributed to people in our local community.  Students are also invited to bring donations for the United Way and Murray County Food Shelf. 

We will celebrate our final half-day before break with a school-wide celebration.  This is a reward for all the Rebel Bucks students have earned so far this year.  Special thanks to Miron and Alex Carney for helping us kick off our celebration with some fun Christmas music at West Elementary!   Two students’ names will also be drawn on our celebration day to win Rebel Pride t-shirts for their entire homeroom class.

We wish to thank all of the parents and community members who have shown support to our students during this holiday season.  We appreciate your presence at the many holiday performances and special activities.  We would also like to send our thanks out to those “Secret Santas” who have blessed some of our families in need with gifts this Christmas.

We wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year!
