First Notice – Survey and Eagle Update

For those of you who follow me on this blog, I want to thank you for reading and keeping current on the things at MCA.

A quick note to you who are invested in MCA.  We are planning to invite parents to come to a conversation about results from the parent engagement survey at 5:45pm in the South Campus Eagle Eatery on March 29th in advance of the 6:30pm Eagle Update session.  I hope you will plan on coming.  We will review the results of the survey and discuss “Academics – how to gauge effectiveness?”  I hope to hear how parents gauge the effectiveness of academics, and share how we are currently doing so.  We want to make sure our communication is providing complete and appropriate information on this critical topic.

Hope to see you there.

40 Days of Prayer – Worship

I want to express my appreciation for those who came out to join in the celebration worship service this past Monday (March 7).  With Ms. Westerfeld, Ms. Mills, student Zeru Fitsum and the Select Choir leading us, we had a wonderful time praising God in song.  Then board vice-chair, Brian Howell, led devotional thoughts on joy and MCA.  Students Rebekah Fitsum and Gracie Neland reminded us of the value and purpose of prayer.  Senior Brooke Bowlin shared her heart concerning the impact MCA has made on her life through the 15 years she has been here.  Parent Bob O’Keith challenged us concerning prayer from the perspective of a pastor, dad, and co-laborer in Christ.  Secondary principal wrapped up the comments to pray specifically for God to work through us and around us, and to not let the fact that the 40 Days of Prayer have ended stop us from praying faithfully for each other and for MCA.

I came away from the event feeling refreshed and encouraged in the work God is doing with at MCA.  Thank you for praying faithfully through the 40 Days and as we go forward.  We want to honor God in all we do.
