Thank you – Halloween Spooktacular

Dear MCS Families,

On behalf of the PTO, we’d like to express our sincere thanks to all who came out to the Spooktackular event on Saturday. There were so many smiling faces! Who else LOVED seeing the younger kids doing a conga line in their costumes??? 

With 130 new students in our school this year, it certainly made this event bigger and better than ever! …and bigger is an understatement – we had over 450 people attend the event this year and 35 vehicles in place for Trunk or Treating – breaking all previous MCS Halloween Spooktacular records!

Competition for best Trunk was at an all-time high this year – a huge thank you to volunteers and their creative trunks. This year will be difficult to top. Kids and parents alike loved this part of the event.


Apologies to any middle school students who had to miss the haunted hallway. The hallway had to be closed early when an outdoor fog machine set off smoke detectors; the wind was just right to blow the fog back into the open doors of the school. At the request of SKFD, we had to close the hallway early to ensure a safe event.


Events like this can only happen with your involvement. We have some other events coming up and we’d love to see you and have your participation:

  • AT OUR NEXT LARGE EVENT –  Sunday, Dec 4th, MCS PTO will host the Annual Christmas Festival right here at MCS which will run from 9am to 3pm and will be open to the entire community (not just MCS families). There will be a Scholastic Book Fair presence the day of the event and the week before the event.   
  • TAKE THE LEAD ON AN EVENT – We have several exciting event options including the Annual Golf Tournament (tentatively June 2023 – no golf experience necessary) as well as the Mother/Son (tentatively April 2023) and Father/Son (tentatively May 2023) events.
  • VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME DURING AN EVENT – We have many other events planned which will require help from volunteers – be on the lookout in the Friday MCS emails or Monthly PTO Newletter emails for more opportunities.

If you’re interested in helping with the Christmas Festival or the associated book fair, taking the lead on future events, volunteering your time, or just want to know more – please email the PTO to express your interest or attend the next PTO meeting on Wendesday November 9th at 7pm (either in person at MCS, or via Zoom).
