Character Ed Theme –  Commitment

Attention Students…

  • Attention 4th Grade Students… If you brought jackets to school, you will want to bring them with them to specials today. 
  • At the end of April, the accelerated math classes in Junior High competed in a math contest hosted by Gibault High School. 10 students’ scores for each grade, 6th through 8th, were submitted for the competition. Five area schools participated in the contest including ICS in Columbia, Red Bud, St. Joseph Catholic School in Freeburg, St. John the Baptist School in Smithton and Millstadt and amounted to about 36 participants per grade level. We had several students who received awards for their impressive work.  In 6th grade Joel Kurfman was awarded 4th place for his score that was tied with the 2nd and 3rd place finishers. Due to pre-determined tie-breakers, his rank was dropped to 4th place. Jack white was the highest scoring 7th grader but unfortunately his score did not secure him an award. In 8th Grade, Michael Robertson tied the 1st place finisher but a tie-breaker question moved him to 2nd Place. In addition, Jacob Mathenia came in 3rd place while Molly Haag secured the 5th place ribbon and Lucas Pellmann was awarded 6th place. 
  • Attention 7th & 8th Grade Athletes that played 3 sports…. Please sign the 3 sport sheet in the gym. 

The Jr. High Math Teachers are proud of the effort put forth by their students and congratulate all students on a job well done! A special shout out to the award winners mentioned above!

Repurpose Used School Supplies for NiCE…..Students ~ this is an opportunity to help educate less fortunate children by collecting and repurposing your used school supplies.  As we approach the end of the school year when cleaning out lockers, backpacks and desk areas – please repurpose them instead of throwing them in the trash.  We will have tables and empty boxes set up in all the hallways at MCS and in front of the aquarium at MPC.  Donations will be collected from Wednesday, May 5th - 19th.
