All MNCS Elementary students will be having Genius Hour on-site Friday, October 6th.

There is NO cost for Genius Hour and it is sure to be another fun Experience Friday for our students!

October 13th: McGowan's Farm

We are excited that MNCS Elementary (K-6) will be going on a field trip to McGowan’s Farm for History Fest coming up on October 13th! This will be an all day field trip and we will be leaving shortly after students arrive for the day and returning before buses arrive for after school release.

We will be experiencing a taste of what it was like in days gone by…with a variety of entertainers and activities ranging from Historical Interpreters of 17th century Scotland and the Old West, launching a catapult, cider making, cannon shooting, and so much more!

Lunch: Please bring a bagged lunch if your student is not participating in the school lunch program. All students will need to bring a water bottle.

Cost: $6.00 per student. Online payment is available HERE. You can also pay via cash or check. Please put in an envelope and write your child's name on the front and return to the child's Advisor or Brianne Fuhrmann, MNCS Elementary Administrative Assistant.

Chaperones/Volunteer: If you are intersted in chaperoning this trip, Please let your child's Advisor or Brianne Fuhrmann, MNCS Elementary Administrative Assistant know. Thank you for your willingness to participate and contribute your time!

To ensure the safety of our students, we require criminal background checks on the following:

1. Any volunteer who accompanies students off campus (i.e., chaperones for field trips).

2. Any volunteer who is responsible for working with students on campus (including virtual experiences), but not under the supervision of a licensed teacher
