MACC Students' Penny War

In October, MACC students conducted a penny war to raise money for a non-profit of their choice. The competition included a bucket decorating contest, daily penny winners, and a vote for the organization that would receive the money raised. Students and staff raised over $1400 that will be donated to the U.S. Wounded Soldiers Foundation, an organization that supports veterans wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are proud of our staff and students, who worked diligently to raise funds to help serve those in need, proving that anyone can make a difference in the lives of others with commitment and effort.

Explicit Instruction

Join MAISD staff to learn about the benefits of Explicit Instruction. Participants will receive Anita Archer's book, Explicit Instruction: Effective and Efficient Teaching. Sessions in the series may be taken in any order and may be taken as separate workshops.
