Dear MCDS Community,

A pandemic cannot stop us from celebrating our school and community! While we are extremely sad to have missed the opportunity to share time together at this year’s Celebrate MCDS in person, our resilient volunteer committee has been working hard on a virtual way for us to celebrate our school and raise the much-needed funds to keep MCDS strong. There is no greater time than in the midst of a crisis to link arms (virtually, of course) and move forward together.

Help keep MCDS strong

Celebrate MCDS is our largest parent party and fundraiser of the school year. We get a chance to celebrate our school and parent community as a whole! Now, more than ever, we all need a break to let loose and congratulate one another on making it this far. Our financial goal was to raise $150,000 from this event. We hope that, if you are able, you will show support for MCDS by making a donation to help us strengthen our foundation for the uncertain times ahead of us.

Instead of the typical separate paddle raise we have during Celebrate, we hope that all will consider “raising their paddle” toward one common goal: keeping MCDS strong. If you did purchase tickets or tables for our live event, we will be contacting you individually. The golden ticket raffle has been canceled for this year and all tickets sold have been refunded–raffle ticket sales are not allowed online or through mail. We hope to offer the popular golden ticket raffle again next year!

The option to make a donation begins today. Every dollar builds a stronger school ready to face any challenges to come! Thank you.
