All MCC employees are invited to the annual in-service on Tuesday, Nov. 22. The event is being held on the MCC-Business & Technology Campus from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. The program will highlight MCC’s vision and goals, recognize faculty and staff, and discuss MCC’s Strategic Plan.
This year, the College is participating in a community service project aimed to support education. Employees can support the effort by bringing children’s books to the November event.
It is called the Turn the Page Drive and benefits Turn the Page KC, a local nonprofit initiative dedicated to increasing childhood literacy rates. The organization is asking for new or gently used children’s books for zero to 9-year-olds. Picture books, board books, “learning to read” books and chapter books are all greatly encouraged. Books that are donated with stains, tears and written-on pages cannot be used and will have to be thrown away.
If you need ideas:
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
My Mother is So Smart by Tomie DePaola
Rainbow Magic (series) by Daisy Meadows
Ramona the Pest (series) by Beverly Cleary
Piper Reed (series) by Kimberly Willis Holt
For a full list of books to consider, broken down by age group, Turn the Page KC has the information posted on their website.
If you want to participate, just bring the books you would like to donate to the Nov. 22 event.
Employees who would like to be recognized for awards received from an outside organization in the last year should fill out the in-service-2016-degree-certificate-award-form and send it to Shannon.Ross@mcckc.edu in the Human Resources department by Friday, Nov. 4.
