Welcome back to school!

We are so happy that you are here at MCE! We hope you are ready for an amazing school year!

First day of School

We will be having our welcome back celebration in front of the school and at the bus drop off. Members from the community will be present to welcome the students back to school. This is a large event and an exciting time for all of us. Below are details about that morning. 

  • The parent drop off lane for the morning will be closed. Don’t worry it will be open in the afternoon. If you are dropping off your child. Please park and walk them in. 

  • New Mexico Gas and Oil Association will be handing out backpacks for every student whether they ride the bus or get dropped off.

  • Ink Theory will be present in the morning selling shirts to our students and families. Create your own Dragon Spirit Shirt 


You choose the size and color of shirt and they will create it for you on site!

Adult $20    Youth $15     

Add Foil for an additional $5    

Add a secondary school logo for an additional $5

  • First day am only- Parents will be allowed to walk their child to the classroom. After school please follow our pick up procedure, which will be reviewed at the Meet and Greet and the updated Student Handbook online (will be posted August 1st). 

  • Sensory sensitive entrance will be available the first day of school. If you have a child who would benefit from a more calm/quiet entrance into the school, you can use the library entrance. Please follow the signs that will be set up that morning. 

  • Backdrops will be set up for parents to take pictures of their child(ren) for the first day of school. This is a fun way to capture the beginning of a new school year.


We look forward to working with all of you this school year! Please call if you have any questions.
