On April 13, 2017, just three days before Easter, Colonel Matthew Reid and a group of approximately 300 Marines from Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, departed for a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan. Known as Task Force Southwest, their mission is to help the Afghan Army, police, and government re-gain security from the Taliban in Helmand Province. It is a dangerous mission and Mission Viejo Christian School has pledged their support and prayers for these brave men and women. (Click the photo for the rest of the story.)
MVCS is pleased to announce that we have formed a Battle of the Books (BOB) Club. All students who will be in 4th and 5th grade during the 2017-18 school year are invited to participate and try out for the competitive team. MVCS’s team(s) will compete against other south county schools in March 2018. Each school is allowed to field up to two teams of five members each. Students will be tested on their reading retention of 20 pre-selected books. Readers may get a head start on the reading over the summer by reading as many of the first month’s four books as possible. For more details, click on the image to the left.
MVCS is thrilled to offer a variety of Summer Sports Camps from August 14 through 18 for students entering 4th through 8th grades.
