Student Leadership

MCS is a Leader In Me School that encourages students to be proactive and involved in their school and community.  Our School Mission Statement clearly states that the students are encouraged to Lead by serving others.  One of the ways that our students demonstrate 'Leading by serving others' is to participate in our grade 9 Mission Trip each spring.  The following is a little trivia about the Mission Trip
