MCC Full-Time School is a parochial elementary institution, fully accredited by the State of Illinois. The curriculum of the school is in line with the standards proposed by the ISBE (Illinois State Board of Education). In addition, we offer a curriculum of Islamic Studies which includes a comprehensive program aimed at the explanation and implementation of Islamic practices and principles, as well as mastery of the Arabic language. When this institution first opened its doors in August 1990, it had a total enrollment of 25 students and only offered kindergarten, first and second grades. As a testimony to its tremendous growth, MCC-FTS now has an enrollment upwards of 480 students, over 55 staff members.
Welcome to MCC FTS
Alhamdulillah, this is our 25th Year Anniversary! MCCFTS has been “Building Character & Developing Minds” for a quarter century, mashAllah! This year’s fundraising dinner on March 8, 2014, will be a celebration of this momentous occasion. During the months leading up to our annual dinner, we will hold fun and festive monthly events in anticipation of our big celebration. Here’s what we have planned:
October - “Top 25 Favorite Things About MCCFTS” - Students, parents, teachers and staff submit their TOP 25 Favorite Things about MCCFTS. We will summarize the submissions and present the most popular responses at the annual dinner. All participants who submit entries will be entered into a special drawing taking place on October 25th during assembly. Principal Mr. Quadri will select four entries at random and these people will each win a $25 Amazon gift card.
November - “PSG Popcorn Party featuring 25th Anniversary Movie Reel” - MCCFTS Parent Support Group (PSG) will provide popcorn to all students during their lunch hour on Monday, November 25, while enjoying a special film reel of videos put together by Azam Tai over the years.
December - “A Sweet 25 Years Blizzard Ice Cream Fundraiser” - Let’s celebrate the sweetness of our 25 years with an ice cream fundraiser! Order forms will go out to all students with deadlines for ordering and Dairy Queen Blizzards will be delivered to class a few days later to all students, teachers and staff who place the orders. All funds raised through this fundraiser will go toward supplies and materials for the 25th Anniversary Art Installation being commissioned in celebration of this momentous occasion. Stay tuned for more information.
January - “25th Anniversary Student Art Installation” - On Saturday, January 25, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., 25 students will work together to create a special art installation commemorating our school’s 25th anniversary that will be presented at the annual fundraising dinner and eventually hung in the school. Local artist and MCCFTS parent Alisa Dzananovic will lead the group in creating this spectacular art piece incorporating recycled materials. Students must be between the ages of 11-14 years old to participate. If your child is interested in helping, please email email@example.com. Slots will be filled on a first come, first served basis (students must be available to participate on Saturday, Jan. 25, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.). Please donate your used magazines and newspapers to the special recycling boxes labeled “25th Anniversary Art Installation Magazine/Newspaper Drop-off” in the lobby of the school.
February - “Sharing the Celebration – “25 Days of Giving” Canned Food Drive” - What better way to show thankfulness to Allah(swt) than to share in His bounty. In the spirit of giving, we are asking families to bring canned food items to donate to those less fortunate. From February 1-25 we ask you to please drop canned food donations in the designated space in our lobby. Mark your calendars – donations will be accepted February 1 through 25, 2014.
