Click here to take survey
Music Boostera were planning on taking a trip to Seattle next year for the "4 Year" music trip. However, next school year the mid-winter break is the last week of February. At the last Music Booster meeting it was decided to ask the parents about this trip as it will not happen in February due to winter weather and traveling through mountains to get to Seattle.
Consider attending our meeting on Monday, March 3 at 6:30 PM in the library at McDonell. If you have additional comments, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call President Robert at 715-225-0549

McDonell Area Catholic Schools thank you for choosing a Catholic education for your child’s growth and development. For over 130 years, we have dedicated ourselves in partnership with our parents to the formation of community, academic excellence and the spiritual and physical well-being of each student in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
Pope Francis addressed the importance of Catholic education on June 7, 2013 when he received several students from Jesuit-run schools in Italy and Albania, in the Paul VI Audience Hall.
“… School can and should function as a catalyst, being a place of encounter and convergence of the entire educational community with the single objective of shaping and helping [the students] to grow as mature, simple, honest, and competent persons who know how to love faithfully, who know how to live their lives as a response to God’s call and their future professions as a service to society.”
MACS mission, vision, and core values align with the Pope’s message. We realize that during these difficult economic times, it is a challenge for many of us to invest in our children’s Catholic education. But if you take time to talk to our faculty, staff, alumni, and other parents, you will hear the value that is and will be gained from making the investment. We are blessed with a community of dedicated stakeholders/supporters, excellent teachers, administrators and staff, and supporting parishes to ensure that our children benefit not only from a strong faith-based education but one that continues to build from over 130 years of experience in striving for education of the highest quality.
God bless you.
