We completed Iowa Test of Basic Skills for the 2016-2017 school year in September for grades 3-8.  We will share individual scores with parents at Parent Teacher Conferences October 20 & 21 as well as the below mentioned Kansas Assessments from last year.  I can't begin to express the joy we have in the achievement of our students!

Kansas State Assessment Scores 2015-16
MCS performed extremely well on the 2015-16 Kansas Assessments. We just received scores from last year's assessment and I am proud of our students. Compared to the Salina Diocese and the State of Kansas, our students performed exceptionally well. Our students keep Christ in their daily lives and get an outstanding academic education.

If you want your children to be part of a Christ-centered school that excels academically and still provides athletic and academic programs which are comparable or exceeds public education, please call the office for more information about enrolling your child at MCS. Our classes average 16 students per class and our students receive more attention than public school which are averaging over 25 students per class. Check out our scores!

Principal's Corner

Dear Community and Guests,

Advent is the season of expectation of the Christ, and it is somewhat penitential in tone.  It is four weeks long, or slightly less, the first two focusing on Jesus' final coming as Lord and judge.  The final eight days anticipate his coming in history (Christ-mas).  Since the tenth century, the First Sunday of Advent has marked the beginning of the Church year in the West.  The Third Sunday of Advent, traditionally named Gaudete Sunday, expresses a joyful note of anticipation in the season.

The Christmas Season is the celebration of Jesus' birth and epiphany.  It is second in significance only to the Easter Season.  Its feasts include:

Christmas-December 25

Holy Family-The Sunday after Christmas

Mary, Mother of God-January 1

Epiphany-The Sunday after January 1

Baptism of our Lord-The Sunday after Epiphany

MCS wishes everyone a glorious Advent Season as we celebrate Jesus' birth and manifestation.  Please be safe during your travels.

Mr. Hulshoff
