LCAP Parent Volunteers Needed

LCAP Parents Needed

MCS has a great opportunity for parents to get involved in their child(ren)’s education at the District level – by joining the LCAP Advisory Committee!

The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) Advisory Committee provides feedback on progress toward goals outlined in the LCAP and advice to the Board of Education regarding annual revisions to the plan.

MCS is looking for applicants who not only represent our ethnic and socioeconomic diversity, but also the wide array of programs and services provided by the district (such as Honors/GATE programs, Special Education, Athletics, Visual and Performing Arts programs and Foster Youth services). Translation will be provided as needed.

The first meeting is Tuesday, October 26 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in Staff Development Rooms 1 & 2 at 425 Locust Street, across from the district office or Microsoft Teams. Click on the links to the right for more information.

Before School Care

Good News! Beginning August 9th, Sonoma Elementary will be providing Before School Dolphin Care for Students! Parents, Do you need assistance with childcare supervision in the mornings before school? We want to help. School starts at 8:52am and the morning recess for students in grades 1-6 starts at 8:40a.m. We know that for some families they would appreciate an option to drop off their student earlier in order to make it to work on time, etc. We will open our campus at 7:15am every weekday for students to attend a supervised Before School Care program. They will need to arrive at 7:15am since we cannot accommodate multiple arrival times. Students will be supervised by our classified staff members. A wide variety of activities will be available such as art, puzzles, board games, books, computers, and more! If you sign your child up in advance you may drop them off at 7:15am and they will be supervised by the Before School Dolphin Care Team until it is time for breakfast. They will be served breakfast and then be released to the playground for the morning recess which begins at 8:40a.m. Click on the link on our home page to enroll. You can download the flyer on the right.
