The first Kite Day took place in 1957. Now, over 50 years later, this fun-filled day features games and activities, a picnic lunch and, of course, kite flying! To read more about this year's Kite Day, click here.
Begun in 1958, the Book Fair exemplifies the MCDS community's love of literature and reading. The week-long celebration includes a festive Opening Night Buffet and Preview, a luncheon with a noted author as speaker as well as student assemblies with visiting authors. Proceeds from the Book Fair benefit the MCDS Library.
