Last month, on September 24, many of our Upper School students participated in a very special day at MCA: Grandparents’ Day! Several times a year, we provide an opportunity for grandparents to walk the halls of our buildings with their students, meet teachers and other members of our school community, and truly experience our faith mission in action. Our Lower School students will host Grandparents’ Day this spring. We find that students at all grade levels take great pride in serving as school ambassadors for their loved ones, introducing them to their classmates and teachers, and welcoming them to MCA.
Grandparents have a very special role at MCA: Their wisdom, faith, and experiences have so much to teach our students. Our grandparents also bring so much energy and creativity to our school. We value their contributions of time and talent to advocate for our mission as a private Christian school through the Legacy Knights club, providing generational support to both our students and their parents.
