Elementary robotics club provides students an opportunity to explore the world of robotic design and function. Students work with the sponsor to determine the best design for their robot, how to build it, and how to use technology to control the movements of the robot. It is an amazing hands-on experience designed to explore the STEM fields.
At MCS, we offer a comprehensive collection of extracurricular activities that enhance our students’ educational experiences. Our activities serve as an extension of our academic and spiritual growth programs and are designed to develop students spiritually, socially, physically, and academically. We feel every student should have the opportunity to participate in activities that empower them to discover and explore their God-given gifts and abilities, develop their leadership skills, and deepen and strengthen their relationships with peers and the staff.
When students immerse themselves in activities beyond the classroom their level of pride, commitment, and fulfillment in school increases significantly. Studies show that students who participate in extracurricular activities experience more academic success and have a reduced risk of absenteeism. When students join our extracurricular programs they develop a loyalty to MCS and experience true Lion Pride!
Students in grades K-5 have the opportunity to develop their investigative and experimental skills in an effort to prove (or disprove) a scientific theory they are interested in.
Students follow a set of guidelines to create an experiment of their choice and then design a presentation board to display their findings at the annual science fair. During the science fair, students present their experiment to a panel of judges.

Chess club provides students an opportunity to learn about the game of chess.
