MCDC Parents:

Next Thursday March 22nd, is our Annual Egg Hunt!  We will be hiding eggs on the playgrounds for the Creeper, Toddler, Explorer and Preschool Classrooms.

Creepers, Toddlers and Explorers will hunt for eggs at 9:30am and Preschool will hunt for eggs at 10:00am.

We will be taking donations to help with the egg hunt.  You may bring in plastic eggs, candy, or pre-filled eggs.  We are a peanut-free facility, so please make sure nothing you bring in has peanuts in it or is processed in a facility that processes nuts. 

Some great items are stickers, tootsie rolls, starburst, chewy lemon heads, small laffy taffy or small airheads.  Anything that will fit inside a standard Easter egg.  (The smarties candies are too big) 

Any donations can be dropped off in the front offices by Wednesday March 21st.

Thank you so much for your help in making this event a fun one!

Wouldn’t it have been wonderful to have ready to prepare meals on hand while we were stuck at home?  I wish I had been prepared!

Join us on the 31st and you can prep 10-20 meals to have on hand in your freezer!  Wildtree now has meals that comply with Weight Watchers, Keto, Whole 30, Paleo……

There is also an option to have Wildtree shop for your groceries!  It could not be any easier to save on your grocery bill and feed your family healthy meals!

Even if you cannot join us for the meal prep, consider ordering a kit and you can do everything at home.  Wildtree will send you all the instructions and our Wildtree representative, Janet Agee, is always available to answer any questions.

MCDC Families,

We had an unplanned Fire Drill this afternoon due to a busted sprinkler head/pipe in the outside closet by the Preschool C classroom.  There is standing water in the back corner of Preschool C and outside.  Please avoid these areas.

As of right now, the water has been turned off to our building until repairs can be made.  I do not have an estimate on those repairs yet, as this has just happened and facilities is on their way.

I will keep you updated.

**Remember for text alerts: text @MCDCF to 81010
