4. Lost and Found
Our lost and found is packed full of all kinds of things! Please take a moment to come just inside the front doors to check for your kids’ belongings.

5. Parking Lot Reminders
Mornings have become darker and rainier and visibility is not good for drivers or pedestrians. Our parking lot attendants have been witnessing close calls and questionable driver and pedestrian habits.

  1. Number one rule – drive slower!
  2. Please only use the far right lane for drop offs – do not drop off in the left hand lane or in the back lane of the parking lot.
  3. Please also do not zoom ahead in the left hand lane to pull into the front of the right hand lane.
  4. And pedestrians – please come across to the school ONLY at the crosswalk.

Thank you for keeping everyone safe!
6. MRCS Day of Giving
Spread the word and make plans to join us for the MRCS Day of Giving on Tuesday, November 28.

7. The Card Project
Everyone who submitted art should have received a sample card last week, along with instructions on how to order. The cards are beautiful! The priority delivery deadline has now passed, but orders are still open until Sunday, November 19. Orders submitted between now and November 19, will be delivered the first week of December.

These items make great gifts and the school is receiving approximately 20% back in fundraising money. Thank you for your orders!
