A Message from Principal JJ Hinderberger
Dear Families,

Happy New Year! It is hard to believe it is already January 2020! As we begin a new calendar year it is a natural time for reflection and the development of new goals. As I reflect on the first half of the year, I am so proud of the academic and social progress that students have made. I am also really proud of the school culture at MRCS.



We all have an impact on our world, so why not try our best to make that impact a positive one? I encourage you to take time to reflect on the year 2019 with your child, identify the positive things that happened, and goals you may have for 2020. In order to cultivate a growth mindset, positive attitude, and reflection, it is important that we provide children with the opportunity to do so. Children learn through careful observation and experience. It is important that we model what good character looks like. Practice gratitude and kindness, and share your observations with your child. Thank others and create opportunities to spread kindness.



I encourage you to spend time with friends and family, play outside, read, and take time to be present with your child. We must support children in developing the character skills needed to make our future world a better place.



With gratitude,

Mrs. Hinderberger

MRCS Routine and Schedule Information
• Recess: All K-5 students have recess three times a day during the school day for 15 minutes each.

• Specials: “Specials” refers to a time every day that students go to library, counseling, music, and physical education class. Each class has one special for 45 minutes Monday-Thursday.

• Morning Routine: Prior to school starting, students either go into the gym for breakfast (starting at 7:30) or to the playground to play outside (at 7:40). Once the bell rings at 7:55, students walk to class. If students arrive after 8am they should stop by the office for a tardy slip before going to class.

• After School Routine: At the end of the day students are walked to the buses, RALLY, or the parent pick up zone.

• Unity Assemblies: Unity Assemblies are school-wide assemblies that take place in the gym every Friday at 8am. During Unity Assemblies we sing, celebrate, and build community. Parents are invited to attend!
  • Need to get a message to your student?
    Please call with any after school instructions or messages for students before 1:30 pm to ensure we can deliver them before the end of the school day. Thank you!
  • Keep your information updated!
    If any of your phone numbers or emergency contact numbers change, please let the school office know as soon as possible.
  • If you receive a call from the school…
    If you receive a call from anywhere in the building, the phone number that appears on your phone will be the main line. Please take a moment to check for messages before calling back. Unfortunately we do not have a way to know who called you and would like to connect you to the correct person!
