Help us fill the audience!
Dear MSC family,
The 7th and 8th graders have been rehearsing for the spring musical since February!  They have been focused and dedicated and want to invite the MSC community to come see and celebrate all their hard work!
The evening performances are on May 15th and 16th at 6:30pm in the MSC auditorium.   Your child will see the show during the school day, however, we want to encourage families of MSC to come out and support this school wide event.  Soooo....
Mark your calendars and let’s fill the seats in support of our 7th and 8th graders!  
Please be advised that every 15 days, we must clear the items in the Lost & Found box. All items are donated. Please come to the Main Office (Room 516) to claim any of your lost items. If your child has after-school, please check the lost & found box at the lobby near the Nurse's Office.

Please email with your photo and information (your name, your child's name and your child's teacher). Your ID card will be ready in a week. You can pick up the ID card from your child's teacher.
