As we round the final turn into Quarter 4, the finish line is in sight!  Planning for Prom and Graduation is underway and starting to take on more definition.  In regards to prom, it will be held Saturday, April 30th.  This year we are back to our normal prom routine with the details highlighted below:

I am proud of all the hard work our Jr./Sr. Advisors Ashley Haken, Darla Bly, James Wajer and Patrick Freeman have done to make sure we have a great prom this year! 

 I sent out our seniors’ last week of school schedule along with other end of year planning information last week.  Here are some important dates to keep in mind as we wrap up our school year: 

Congratulations to the class of 2022!  Best wishes as you take these next steps in your life and find your footing for the future.  Please know that you are always welcome to come back to MCC and visit!  We will miss you!

 Summer School

New this year, we will be having an enrichment Summer School option for both elementary and high school students.  Based on the book Hatchet by Gary Paulson, students will explore the outdoors and do some of the activities that the book’s main character Brian did while stranded in the wilderness. Students will read excerpts from various novels by Gary Paulson and other adventure writers.  This program will be for students entering 5th-8th grade.  A summary of what the week will look like is below:

 Students will meet July 11th-15th at MCC HS from 7:45am-12:45pm for stretching, light exercise, outdoor activity, book reading, small group discussions, lunch at MCC West, and large group games. The week will culminate in a special project with a poster based on what students learned about literary features and about themselves by reading and discussing the book readings.  More information on how to register for this exciting program will be coming soon- so stay tuned!

 It is an exciting time at MCC, and there are lots of events for students to look forward to.  Our community is amazing and continues to put the students of Murray County first.  Thank you for your unending support.
