MCHD is excited to partner with the NC Diaper Bank to collect diapers for local families. Bring diapers to drop-off through Tuesday, December 19th. Both opened and unopened units of diapers are accepted. Size 5, 3T-4T pull ups (boys), wipes, and feminine hygiene products are especially needed. Thanks for your support of this project!
You are invited to the MCHD Upper Elementary musical "Character Matters" on Monday, December 18th at 6:30pm in the Multi-Purpose room. They will stage a Fairy Tale Advice Council Meeting to offer constructive solutions to well-known story book characters. Baby Bear learns to forgive Goldilocks, Humpty Dumpty decides to take responsibility for his actions, and much more! Come see our poised and confident Upper Elementary leaders and the fruits of their Montessori education as they perform their musical!

MCHD School Board’s Development Committee is guiding the efforts to build a turf playing field on campus (next to the Multi-Purpose room) to replace the empty mulch patch. We’ve lined up a contractor to make a more permanent 40 foot by 60 foot playing field suitable for soccer, volleyball, and badminton. They’ll build a retaining wall, fix drainage issues, and add artificial turf and fences. They’ll even provide attachment points for volleyball nets and other equipment.
The entire project totals $60,000 and we’re hoping to break ground next summer (2018). Through donations and pledges, we’ve already raised about half of that! We’re hoping other MCHD families or friends will consider pledging to our campaign, either through monthly, semi-annual, annual, or one-time gifts.
Prospective Families are invited to MCHD for an Interactive Open House. This hands-on interaction with the teachers, materials, and classroom will be held on Monday, October 30th at 9am or 11:30am. This event is for parents only. RSVP to reserve your space at either session.
