Dear Parents,


I am happy to report that our Advanced Drama production of "Much Ado About Nothing" was very successful. This was Ms. Marks’ first production of the year. I was very proud of all the students and staff involved in the play. Our next drama production will be "James and the Giant Peach" and it will be performed by the students in the Beginning Drama classes. Students are currently rehearsing so they will be prepared for opening night on January 25th.

Our parents are always so crucial to the success of all that goes on at MCAA. Already, many parents have volunteered to build sets, helped with ticket purchases for shows and dances, and have helped with refreshments. Also, many are a part of the PTSA and the site council and volunteer to be chaperones for dances and field trips.

Our students are very talented. Last year, the students in our Painting and Drawing classes began painting murals on classroom doors, giving our school even more of an arts school look and feel. They will soon resume this endeavor.

Finally, quarter 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 the counselor, Christy Spade, for help.
