School Improvement Plan

A message from Mr. Aviles about our SIP:

“Our theme this year is “A New Hope.” “A New Hope” was the first Star Wars movie; hence we have filled our PPT presentation with Star Wars characters. We chose “A New Hope” as our theme for this year because we felt that after our “Charting the Course” year last year there was a new hope in the air about what this year was going to offer.”

Important Information for Parents Regarding Canvas

Did you know that you can connect to your students’ Canvas accounts as an Observer and be able to see all assignments, due dates, and communications with your children’s teachers? Better yet, once you have joined with your child’s account this year, you will be forever linked to that account until your child is no longer an MCSD student all the way through his/her high school graduation!
