Wednesdays at MCES have been designated as STARS (Sisters Taking Action to Realize Success) T-shirt Day. The first STARS Day was November 15, 2017. At the close of the day, the girls met with STARS advisors, Ms. S. McIvory and Mrs. I. Parker, for their after-school meeting. The girls were so excited to share the pride they felt while wearing their shirts! Many people wanted to know all about the program and complimented the girls’ positive attitudes.
