As part of your religion grade, each student will be required to perform six hours (90 minutes each quarter) of community service. Serving at mass will only count as 60 minutes. These hours must be done in the community and not part of any activity during school hours or activities associated with projects done for the extended family. These hours are also counted towards the 20 hours for the Citizenship and Community Service Award. All community service hours will be turned into the Religion/Homeroom teacher, not the office. The Religion teacher will instruct and help the students to understand the importance of developing an attitude of service. They will help by giving good examples for community service and by reflecting in class on what makes a good community service project. (See the student-parent handbook for further clarification.)
Community Service Award for Grades 6-8
Each student who meets 20 or more hours of community service with a minimum of 5 different types of activities will be presented an award with the following levels:
- Gold: 60+ hours
- Silver: 40-59 hours
- Bronze: 20-39 hours
The community service hours are individual hours that the student volunteers, without pay to help someone in the parishes or community. Community service hours must have the principal’s approval. There will be a form to use to turn these hours into the homeroom teacher. If there are any questions, it is advisable to get prior approval from the principal. These hours may not be done in the student’s own home. Hours need to be turned in immediately following the completion of the service hours. All community service hours must be turned in by May 1st of the school year. Hours turned in after this date will not be counted for any awards. The following hours are examples of hours that may not be used as community service hours for this award: class projects, hours that will also be used for confirmation hours, or hours during school time. Volunteer hours for baby-sitting for school functions, and helping at family fun night, or Buttons and Bows may count.

All students are welcome to participate in the annual Science Fair, usually held during the third quarter of the school year. The 2021 MCS Science Fair will take place on February 19th. Judging will take place on February 19th and awards will be presented at school on February 22nd.
The exhibiting individuals must do investigation and display work. Source of advice and equipment must be stated.
No exhibitor may repeat an exhibit presented in previous local, regional or international science fairs unless it is a an expanded version of the project from the previous year or has been authorized by the science fair committee.
No dangerous chemicals, open flames, explosives, exposed electrical wiring or poisonous reptiles are allowed.
Starvation or diet altering experiments on animals is not allowed. Live animals are not to be displayed at the science fair.
Size limits: Exhibit size is limited to 15 inches deep (front to Back), 42 inches wide (side to side), and 8 feet high (floor to top). Any projects exceeding these dimensions are oversized and will be disqualified.
Construction of exhibits must be durable and safe, with movable parts firmly attached. Pins must be attached in such a way that they do not stick out and are dangerous.
Each exhibitor must assemble his or her exhibit without major outside help, except for transportation and unpacking.
Exhibits requiring electricity must specify the current needed when submitting application. All switches and cords for operation must be covered. Electrical outlets will be furnished only with advance notice on a first come first serve basis. Judges can evaluate without actual operation of the exhibit. Poor electrical wiring and connections will result in disqualification.
The projects should not include names or photos of the student's face or faces so that the student would be identifiable. This year we will have the students make tent cards so that they are identified for the viewing on Saturday but not identified for the judging.
