As we all know, LOVE is far more than a wave of feelings. In fact, Christian LOVE shows itself through the active demonstration of our convictions towards GOD and people. We are excited to invite our grades 1 to 6 students to participate in three activities which will increase their understanding of the true meaning of LOVE!

  1. Our students will invest their artistic skills in decorating a wooden heart, honoring another student of their age group. They will share about their classmate in front of the whole class, and offer a “piece of art/heart” as a show of their appreciation! This activity seeks to increase the level of one’s awareness towards the value and qualities of others. We are surrounded with people created in GOD’s image: the students will bring into light this wonderful truth!
  2. We will also visit elderly people and encourage them. The students are preparing songs and will also offer them “fruit sticks” as a symbol of intergenerational unity through diversity! LOVE looks and tastes good!
  3. Finally, we are super excited to announce the creation of a LOVE in ACTION partnership between our school and l’École Mixte Oasis – EMOC, a Haitian Christian French school located in the south of the island, in Les Cayes. This school serves the needs of many orphans and very low income families, by offering them education, emotional and spiritual support. MCFS students will send them a personalized card and gift, initiative that will open a great channel of mutual encouragement and friendship between our two schools! Hearts are being shaped in a powerful way, LOVE being the greatest agent of change!

How it Works
Each month, the students who receive this honor will be rewarded a special invitation to McDonald’s with the principal and a special reward.

  • Demonstrates responsibility
  • Complete assignments on time
  • Show strong efforts to learn the subjects
  • Show outstanding behaviour inside and outside the classroom
  • Is well mannered and respectful to peers and teachers
  • Follows classroom / school rules and expectations
The MCFS student of the month is chosen based on qualities such as character, leadership, and citizenship, not necessarily academics. The student of the month must have the following characteristics:
The student of the month must also display excellent citizenship by aligning him/herself with MCFS school values. Lastly, he/she shows exemplar character through his/her compassion, honesty, trustworthiness, responsibility, optimism and loyalty in creating a positive school environment. Each month, the classroom teacher, special area teachers, and administrators can nominate students for that month. One boy and one girl can be selected from each grade level as long as they have met the criteria. Our goal is to have 100% student participation by June in each grade. The students will have demonstrated the “Big Three”:
  • Do the Right Thing
  • Do Your Personal Best
  • Treat People Right
