Community service is an important part of our MCS community. All students participate in community service activities and events throughout the year. Students learn to be a part of the global community and share their time and abilities to help others.
MCS families have worked together on several community service projects over the years. Our families donated and delivered 600 pounds of food to the Eastway Elementary Backpack program, supplying students with backpacks of nutritious foods to supplement what they are receiving at home.
We also gathered hands, big and small, to cut and tie large pieces of fleece to create blankets to donate to Project Linus. This national program provides blankets to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise need handmade blankets and afghans.
Families also donated food and supplies for a local animal shelter, a project initiated by some of our Upper Elementary students. And, during our popular Scholastic Book Sale, we collected hundreds of gently used books to share with our local community through Book Harvest.
In recent years, we have held a Gear Sale to offer collected items to the public at low prices and then donated the unsold items to a number of local organizations including: Welcome Baby, Reading Seed, local shelters, libraries, and other organizations in need of baby and children’s items.
As a school, we create and donate art through a non-profit created by a former MCS student: Art for Hospice.
