Thank you to everyone who participated in, volunteered, donated, and supported MVCS's second annual Golf Tournament and Helicopter Golf Ball Drop. Both events were bigger and better than last year, and by EVERY account, huge successes! Special thank yous go out to Development Director Leslie Lawicki and Marketing Coordinator Cindy Williams for the fabulous job they did planning, coordinating, and overseeing these events on behalf of our school. We have wonderful photographs from both the Golf Tournament and the Helicopter Golf Ball Drop for you to enjoy. You can click on the image to the left to see all of the photographs from the Golf Tournament. The link for the Helicopter Golf Ball Drop photos is available in the story below.
MVCS is thrilled to announce that Michelle Dudleston, a mom of one of our 4th grade students, is the Grand Prize Winner for the 2016 Helicopter Golf Ball Drop.

MVCS Crusaders participated in the annual 2016 PINK Day to show their support for all breast cancer survivors and warriors. We prayed for their health and for a cure for all those affected.

MVCS posts photos on our Instagram and Facebook pages regularly. Photo albums can also be found on our school website, under the "Student Life" section.)
It is time for another installment from our "STEM+ in ACTION!" series. Last spring we read about Mr. Ehrheart's 8th grade students dissecting clams and squid and Mrs. Reeder's 5th grade students designing and building roller coasters. This issue features Mrs. Shumaker and her fabulous 4th grade engineers. Click on the photo on the left to read about their bridge building brilliance. (To read the STEM+ in ACTION! stories from last year, scroll down through past news stories.)
Last year's Golf Ball Drop was met with such enormous response and excitement that we are thrilled to bring it back this year! Click on the photo to the left to enjoy a video montage from last year's fun as the students clapped and cheered while hundreds of golf balls fell from the sky.
This year, each golf ball sold will represent a blessing in one of the following key areas:
1. New tools and resources for students
2. Angel Fund tuition assistance for families hit by a sudden financial hardship or for whom the withdrawal of a child is imminent due to financial circumstances
3. A teacher bonus and benevolence program that was initiated last year to help our staff with funds for emergency needs. Teachers are the heart and soul of our school, and we desire to bless them as they GO THE EXTRA MILE daily for our students.
We would love to partner with you to bless our students and staff. We are excited about where we are headed and for all that God has in store for MVCS.
