Our school has been tremendously blessed by the kindness of others during this holiday season.  Several community members contacted me with hopes of “adopting” a family they could help this Christmas.  In the end, 12 families in our district received gifts, household items, gift cards, etc. from their “Secret Santas”.  MCC staff would like to take this opportunity to thank those Secret Santas for their tremendous generosity!  

We would also like to thank the Slayton Pizza Ranch for providing a small pizza certificate for each of the 40 participants in the MCC Backpack Program.  This program provides food packages for elementary students in need that go home in their backpacks each week.

Many thanks to Finley Engineering for their donation to the MCC Children’s Fund.  This fund helps pay for items that students may need, but cannot afford.  These items include winter clothing, tennis shoes, hygiene supplies, eyeglasses, etc.  This fund is a wonderful resource for our staff to access as we strive to help meet the needs of all students.

We also extend out thanks to all of the community members and parents who have sent gifts, goodies, helped with classroom activities and attended programs this holiday season.  Your support helps to keep our school vibrant and strong.  Happy Holidays to you all!
