Greetings Parents,

On behalf of our faculty and staff, we welcome you to Macon County Elementary School (MCES).  This year promises to be a year filled with golden opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be better.  Moreover, we embark on this journey with a pledge to our families (students and parents), that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms. 

During the 2016-2017 school year, we will continue to build and refine best teaching practices, honor our tradition, and focus on excellence in education.  Our aim is to embrace opportunities, unlock potential and inspire excellence in all stakeholders.

Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities that extend beyond the classroom.  We invite and strongly encourage our students and parents to work in partnership with us as we transform from “Good to Great.”

We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!  We extend a special yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We want, need and value your support in your child’s education!  Your active participation is key to the success of your child during his/her fundamental years.



Marcus A. Barber, Ed. D.,
