      By virtue of a child’s attending MCE, his or her parents/guardians automati-
cally become part of the Home and School Association of MCE. The support of
every parent is important as an example for our children and for the overall vi-
brancy of the school. Various opportunities for you to participate or provide other
resources will be communicated throughout the year. We strongly encourage
every parent to participate. This organization seeks to strengthen the school pro-
gram by bringing school families together in a variety of ways throughout the year.
One of their major goals is to raise money for school improvements that would be
difficult to afford otherwise.
