IS NUMBER ONE IN MEAP SCORES
MCMA 3rd Grade students scored as the top school in
Macomb County for reading! The 3rd Grade math scores placed us as a
top ten school in the county. Our students continue to show their
outstanding performances on the MEAP tests. Our proficiencies were
above the state and county levels for all our math, reading, and
science scores. We are so proud of our students, staff, and parents.
Our collaborative efforts made this possible.
SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE STATUS
Michigan's recently enacted Schools of Excellence law recognizes high performing charter schools. MCMA is designated as one of the top ten high-performing K-8 charter schools. This honor was earned by having a three-year average proficiency rate of at least 90% in reading and math in the MEAP tests. According to The Center for Charter Schools,
"Earning the designation of a School of Excellence will put a charter public school in an elite class, which will help in attracting and retaining students and staff, and could also help bolster the school's
base of support within the community". We are excited to receive acknowledgment for the hard work accomplished by our students, staff, parents, community members, and administration. Thank you for all your support!
HEATHLY EATING CHALLENGE
MCMA is proud to have participated in the "Building
Healthy Communites" grant from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.
Our school communities has benefited in so many ways. The grant
played a part in making a difference in the lifestyles and health of
our staff, students, and families. Amy Malow was a driving force
behind the grant procurement and implementation and we are fortunate
to have her share her talents. Having such devoted families is one
of the "pieces in the puzzle" that makes MCMA a special place.The grant provides curriculum for our physical
education program, training for all staff, resources, and support
valued over $30,000. Nearly 90
elementary schools applied and just over 20 schools received
funding. More than 14,000 school children throughout
in 39 schools have participated in the Building Healthy Communities
initiative since 2009.
As part of a culminating event our MCMA community
particpated in a "Healthy Eating Challenge". Mrs. Malow compiled a
showcase of all the entries to share with our families. It can be
here.Thank you again to all our MCMA community members for
