MCDC Families,

Below is a link to an At Home Guided Learning Plan with activities you can do with your children at home to connect with family and friends that you are unable to see this year. This is from Teaching Strategies that publishes our curriculum Creative Curriculum. I hope you enjoy trying some of these with your children. I’d love to hear how it goes! Happy Holidays!!

MCDC Families,


Next week we will have our Usborne Books and More Book Fair in the library on Wednesday and Thursday with Kate Pokemire.  MCDC gets a portion of the sales in free books or cash back.  There are several ways you can purchase books. 


  • Use this link to purchase books online.  The books will be shipped directly to your home!


  • Stop by the library on Wednesday and Thursday to shop.  If Kate doesn’t have what you are looking for in stock, she can always place an order for you.


  • Send in money with your child and we will take them shopping for you!  Just make sure to give your child’s teacher the money, and we will take the children shopping one at a time while they are here at school.



Happy Reading!!

MCDC Parents,


We will be returning to our normal operating hours effective Tuesday September 8, 2020.  Normal operating hours are 6:45am-5:45pm.  Our staff has done a great job of getting into a sanitizing rhythm to allow us to return to our normal hours. 


Children may be dropped off in their classrooms at 6:45am, but no earlier.  Please do not enter the building until right at that time as teachers will be busy setting up their classrooms and sanitizing.  It can be a distraction when children arrive early and wait in the classroom.  At pickup time, children must be picked up and out of the building by 5:45pm.  Please ensure that you are here in time to pick up your child and their belongings and exit the building by 5:45pm.  Our late pick up fee is $1.00 per minute per child.


Please let me know if you have any questions!  Have a wonderful and safe Labor Day Weekend!!
