Curriculum, Programs and Activities
The renowned Katy ISD curriculum provides a strong foundation for goals centered on high academic achievement, which are couched in the development of positive self-concepts. Children are motivated to participate in a wide variety of pursuits. Read, Deed, Run is one example of a program that provides opportunities for simultaneously building academic/intellectual, social and physical abilities. Celebrations applauding a selected writing sample at each grade level are held throughout the year, with student work enlarged to poster size and left on display to inspire all students to write well. The lovely library boasts many special programs (incentives to interact with engaging literature, author visits, etc.), all geared toward creating lifelong readers. Book Club, Math Club, Science Club, Art Night, Math/Science Night, Reading Night, Destination Imagination, cheering leading and academic tutoring outside of regular school hours and school musicals are among the numerous offerings for children that reveal the dedication of faculty members to go above and beyond, the devotion of parents to support school endeavors, and the eagerness of children to learn and make friends.
PTA and Volunteers
MCE is proud to have a PTA (Parent Teacher Association) which provides special events for families to enjoy and financial support to further student success. Winter Wonderland is among these special events. A group of dads, WATCH dogs, give their time and talents to periodically be present within the school day. The KEYS (Keep Encouraging Youth toward Success) is a highly productive program at the school. The CAT (Campus Advisory Team) takes an active leadership role in planning for MCE student success. Volunteers are always needed and welcomed at MCE!
Innovation abounds at Mayde Creek Elementary (MCE), and technology integration for learning is evident throughout the school. Each school day begins with GBC (Gator Broadcasting Company) presentations of the pledges to the U. S. and Texas flags, announcements and recognitions. All classrooms have SMART boards plus the school has computer labs, classroom computers and document cameras to support learning across the curriculum. I-pads give faculty and students abundant avenues for acquiring knowledge and practicing skills. Parents are kept informed of school happenings via the School Messenger which is delivered through email or phone messaging.
Recognition and Encouragement
Although terrific team work is a constant at MCE, care is taken to also recognize and encourage individual achievements. One example of this is the POD celebrations that take place on early dismissal days . A ‘pod’ is a gathering of young alligators, and the MCE mascot is the gator. A POD (Practicing Outstanding Determination) celebration gives teachers the chance to recognize in a student assembly one student per class who exhibits behavioral or academic determination to succeed at high levels. Children receive an award lanyard and have pictures with the principals displayed in a main hallway.
