A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you,
so you must love one another.  By this everyone will know that
you are my disciples, if you love one another.
John 13:34-35

Bully Prevention Month

October is national Bully Prevention Month. MCS students participate in activities and discussions designed to raise awareness of bullying and how to prevent it. Jesus calls us to love one another as he has loved us. As his disciples, we are called to show his love by being kind to each and every student in our school and by making sure that everyone in our school family feels loved and accepted.
