MCS Welcomes 65 New Students For the 2016-2017 School Year

Thursday, September 15, 2016

Manhattan Country School Welcomes New FamiliesManhattan Country School is excited to welcome 65 new students this year. The school held a breakfast reception Friday morning to welcome their families and provide an opportunity for them to meet MCS faculty and staff and fellow new families.

Among the new students joining MCS, 63 are in the Lower School (the majority in our doubled 4-5s, 5-6s and 6-7s classes) and two are in the Upper School. Nine are joining siblings who already attend MCS, while two are children of MCS alumni. And we have three sets of twins!

Our cohort of new families represents 28 different zip codes. They reside in neighborhoods in Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx and Westchester.

Returning families, please extend a warm welcome to the newest members of the MCS community. We invite all families to join us on Thursday, September 22 for our Welcome Back Parents’ Reception at 6 p.m. and Opening Parents’ Association Meeting at 7 p.m.
