Class of 2022 Alum Open House Invitation

5/16/2022 5:04 pm

Our original 5th grade class are ready to truly lead the way into the “real world” as they graduate from high school this year! We want to send them off and they want to visit the place they call their elementary home.


All MCES Alumni in the Class of 2022 will all be invited to an Open House at MCES on Thursday, June 2nd between 3pm and 4pm. They will be able to tour our building, interact with our current fifth grade class, and connect with any staff members who would like to come visit. We are hoping this becomes an annual tradition for our aMAYSing school.


More details coming soon!

Race for Education Update

4/8/2022 4:29 pm

Race4Education was aMAYSing!


It was fabulous to see all of the smiling faces and hear the laughter. It has been far too long since we we have been able to hold a school wide event that included everyone!


Thank you so much for the Race4Education Lead, Shelby Maltese for organizing the event.


To date we have raised over $17,000 for our students and school.


A huge thank you goes out to all of the volunteers who helped prepare, set up and clean up for the event as well. Also special thank you to the teachers who ran with their students and helped facilitate the day. Mr. Coco's hair is all cut off thanks to some students and the 5th grade team ended the day by all taking a whipped cream pie to the face. Thank you to Ross Orthodontics for donating the water and snacks for students as well as giving them a reusable water bottle. This event would not have been successful without the help of the staff and volunteers.

Community Outreach -- Help Needed

4/8/2022 4:08 pm

Community Outreach Opportunity

Mays Chapel United Methodist Church (MCUMC) partners with MCES to provide weekend meals to families dealing with food-insecurity.


The program is called FELT (Feeding Empty Little Tummies) and currently serves 12 families.


TeamGantt provides a monthly donation to support this program and off set some of the cost  Unfortunately, due to rising prices, this is not covering as much as it previously had.


MCUMC will gladly accept donations at anytime in a bin located outside its front doors. This is an ongoing effort led entirely by volunteers, so there’s no urgency. Food or monetary donations will be accepted on an on-going basis. This partnership has no religious affiliation and there are no barriers to entry.


Please reach out to Meredith Reynolds with any questions. meredith.bray.reynolds@gmail.com
