There have been two different donations to Stable Grounds over the past month. The winners of the Middlebury Pumpkin Race donated their race net proceeds and the Essenhaus donated the funds raised during their December Community Give Back Event.

We wish to remind everyone to be mindful of parking in the correct locations when visiting our schools. Areas designated for handicapped parking are clearly marked with signage and/or blue stripes. Please do not park in those areas unless you need handicapped parking access. The MCS Police Department has the authority to ticket those who fail to comply with this request. We must work together to provide an opportunity for all MCS students and community members to enter and exit buildings and parking lots in a safe manner. We will support our officers who work to enforce these expectations. Let's be respectful of all individuals and set a positive example for our students!
We want to take a moment to thank our cafeteria workers. They work hard every day to provide wonderful meals for our students. Take a look at some of the awesome foods they are preparing!!
