Mrs. Escobar’s “Give Back Class” that has been working to make our school and community a better place to live. On March 17th, the class took a walking field trip and visited places around town handing out St. Patrick’s Day cards and treats to local people and businesses. Their favorite stops were at The Common Grounds and Southern States. They concluded their trip with an impromptu trek to the Middleburg Fire Station where they were greeted with open arms and received a tour and fire hats while passing out their treats and cards.
On March 16th, Ms. Katie Brennen’s class titled “Time Travel to Colonial Middleburg” took a walking field trip to visit historic locations through out town. The students spent the week making butter, creating colonist clothing and learning about the rich history of Middleburg.
During the week of March 7-11th, eight 4th and 5th graders participated in MCCS’s first “Intro to Robotics” class with Mrs. Amy Lutter. The boys built and programmed their Lego EV3 robots on small teams. Later, they undertook programming challenges and as a group they even created a simple robot that could draw on paper.
We have offered two weeks of intersession classes to our students twice already this year. Our first two weeks were in October. Our second two weeks are currently going on and our next intersession classes will be offered to MCCS students in June when school is out .
This is something that we offer that we feel truly sets us apart from other schools. The kids are so passionate about the activities they choose to participate in that learning becomes fun at MCCS!
