We have a couple of new events to add to your calendar!

August 31st- We will be having a Wildtree Night!  If you haven’t heard of Wildtree, you are in for a treat! 

Wildtree was founded on the premise that food should be safe, natural, and easy to prepare - all at the same time.

Instead of using MSG, GMOs, or artificial food dyes, Wildtree products are made from the finest natural and organic ingredients available. Instead of “good for you” foods with all the flavor of sawdust, Wildtree products are taste-tested winners. Instead of lengthy, complicated, time-consuming recipes, Wildtree products enable you to create spectacular, great-tasting dishes with just three or four ingredients.

We maintain a peanut-free facility and thoroughly test our products for safety, nutrition, taste, and ease. We look for a “thumbs-up” from our Product Testing Committee, and are committed to product excellence. If it’s not right, we do it again.

Today, our vision of helping people live healthier lives continues to strengthen! We are excited to offer you and your family our ever-growing line of the finest organic, GMO free, and all-natural products in the marketplace.

You will have the opportunity to make 10-20 meals (depending on your family size) on the 31st.  You will be able to prepare these here at the center anytime between 3:45pm-6:45pm.  You may do it before you pick up your children, or after.  More details about the meals and how to sign up will be coming this week!

September 27th-29th: Usborne Book Fair: We are excited to have Usborne returning for three days next month!  You will not only have the opportunity to purchase wonderful, high quality books for the children in your lives, it will also benefit MCDC with free books for our library and classrooms!

 

*Note: Although I am an Educational Consultant with Usborne Books and More, the book fairs held at MCDC are always conducted by another consultant.  I have not in the past, nor will in the future benefit financially from the book fairs held at MCDC.

October 17th: Pinot’s Palette Benefit for MCDC: Join us for a fun night of painting that will benefit MCDC!

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!
