Welcome back to school MCA… here are your afternoon announcements for Thursday, September 1, 2016.

Here’s an important message from Mrs. Mewes about your schedule: If you have a conflict in your schedule, be sure to fill out a blue conflict sheet so that the problem can be resolved. If you need a conflict sheet, you can get one from the Office, the Commons table or from Mrs. Mewes’ office. Please be sure to look at your schedule carefully so can identify if there are any problems.

Calling all MCA ladies! PEARLS for Teen Girls groups will be starting up Monday, September 19th from 3:45 to 5:45 p.m. Come and see what PEARLS is all about!

Here is an important message about bus passes from Mr. Weigel: Soon MCA will be using permanent M-Cards. Until then we will start the year with one way M-Card Lites. Remember, that once you swipe your 1 way M-Card lite you have 90-minutes from the time of first the swipe to make all of your transfers. After that your 1 way M Card lite is expired. Also, remember to discard 1 way M card lites once they are used so you don’t accidentally get on the bus with an inactive card.
