Dear Parents,
I am happy to report that our Advanced Drama production of “You Can’t Take It With You” was very successful. This was Ms. Marks’ first play of the school year. I was very proud of all of the students and staff involved in the play. Our next drama production will be “Cinderella” and it will be performed by the students in our Beginning Drama classes. Students are currently rehearsing so they will be prepared for opening night on January 31st.
“Music Week” began December 3rd and features four consecutive nights of music performed by our students. Also, our dance students will be performing on December 7th and 8th. 
Our parents are always so crucial to the success of all that goes on at MCAA. Already, many parents have volunteered to build sets, have helped with ticket sales for shows and dances, and have helped with refreshments. Also, many parents have attended PTSA or site council meetings and others have volunteered to be chaperones for dances or field trips. 
Finally, second quarter progress grades should have made it home by now. If you find your student is struggling academically, please do not hesitate to contact the teacher. If you have trouble reaching the teacher, please call the office so that we can help connect you with the teacher. You may also contact our counselor, Christy Spade, for help.
