MCDC Families,

This Saturday from 10:00am-3:00pm is NASA Day in the Park!  This is such a fun event, and MCDC gets to help kick it off with a parade!  We would love to have you join us on Saturday morning on the East side of Big Spring Park.  Last year we met beside the Huntsville Utilities building.  We will have a big banner, so we should be easy to find.  We do not have a definite time yet, but it will probably be around 10:30am.  Invite your family and friends! We will have drinks and snacks at our booth/table at the conclusion of the parade.  Hope to see you on Saturday!!

MCDC Families,

It was nice to talk to several of you last Wednesday morning at our board meet-and-greet.  I know that concerns about the weather and school closures may have impacted some of you that day, but you can always contact me or any other members of the board with any comments or questions.

As previously noted, we will have board elections coming up in May.  If you are interested in running for any of the positions up for election, please send me a short bio and indicate the position you’re seeking by next Tuesday (April 18th).  As a reminder, the positions up for election are:

 

  • Vice President (2 year term)
  • Treasurer (2 year term, must be a MSFC civil servant)
  • Member-at-large, representing enrolled families (1 year term)
  • Member-at-large, representing wait-list families (1 year term)

If you have any questions about the board or the positions up for election, please contact me or the other members of the board (especially those currently serving in the positions).

Thanks for being a part of MCDC,

Brian Mulac

MCDC Parents:

Thank you so much to everyone that has been able to bring in eggs and stuffers!  We are in need of a few more stuffers if you would like to bring in non-peanut candy or treats.  Hershey kisses, tootsie rolls, gummies, etc…

It looks like the weather is going to be BEAUTIFUL for the Egg Hunts!! 

Creepers and Toddlers will be hunting at 9am, Explorers at 9:30am and Preschool at 10:00am.  We would love for you to join us if you are able!  Please remember that there is NO PARKING in the grassy areas.  Use the medical center next door for parking and be sure to leave the 20 minute spaces free for those dropping off and picking up during the egg hunt hours.  I do not want a parent with a carrier or small child having to walk from the medical center.  If you have family joining us for the egg hunt, please make sure that they know the parking procedures as well.  Thank you in advance for cooperating!

Please make sure when you leave after the egg hunts that your child’s teacher knows that you are leaving and your child is in their care.  Thank you!

MCDC Parents,

            Please join us on Wednesday April 5th in my office (rm104) for a Meet & Greet with our Board of Directors.  If you are a new parent to the center, or you just haven’t had a chance to get to know our board, please stop by between 8:00am-8:30am.

            Our Annual Egg Hunt will take place next week on Thursday April 13th.  All of the egg hunts will take place on the playgrounds.  Creepers and Toddlers will hunt at 9:00am, Explorers at 9:30am, and Preschool at 10:00am.  We would love to have you join us for this activity if your work schedule allows.  We are still taking donations of eggs and PEANUT-FREE candy or treats.  Stickers, tattoos, etc….        

            As with any activity that we have, please use the medical center parking lot as overflow parking.  We have several spaces in the front designated for drop off and pick up only.  Please do not park in these spaces to allow those just stopping by to drop off or pick up; especially those with baby carriers.  Please also DO NOT park in our grassy areas.  These are the areas that we use for evacuations and emergency vehicles.

 

Have a great week!

We enjoyed an incredible visit from The Huntsville Symphony Orchestra today!  The preschool children were such great listeners and loved every minute!  We look forward to having them back again soon!
