HOOPCOMING 2020 RECAP
We had a record alumni crowd at our third annual Hoopcoming event recently! Nearly 70 alumni and their family members gathered together to enjoy basketball, good food, and the opportunity to reconnect with other alums. Both the girls and boys teams defeated Walker. During the alumni-student halftime competition, Pearce Stamps-Auston '03 made a terrific half-court shot that helped the alumni defeat the senior boys. Thanks to the Alumni Council Events Committee for making this event such a success. We hope for an even a bigger crowd next year!

CLASS OF 2009 10-YEAR CLASS REUNION RECAP:
For the first time in Mount Paran Christian School history, there was a strong collaborative effort for the graduation classes to celebrate their class reunion. The Class of 2009 – the first “large” class to graduate – held their reunion at Tin Lizzy’s in Kennesaw on October 12. Approximately 30 attendees enjoyed private use of the rooftop at Tin Lizzy’s, with classmates reminiscing about their days at MPCS and visiting with some of their former teachers. Special thanks goes out to 2009 class members Wes Watt and Taylor Kinsey, among others, who helped make this event a successful one. Thank you also to Travis Cochran and TCPICS for taking the event photos. Photos are available for purchase by viewing the link below.
Alumni Children Invited to PreK STEAM Sessions
We want to help make your ten-year class reunion an event to remember! In order to have the best class reunion possible, the MPCS Alumni Department will partner with you in jump-starting your planning and assist you in coordinating and organizing your reunion. Our goal is to help simplify the task of organizing your reunion by giving you helpful hints and ideas. When planning your reunion, you have a choice. Each reunion class can either organize their reunion without any support from the alumni department or they can choose to collaborate with the alumni department and thereby adhere to the basic guidelines as established by the alumni department. To get more information and discuss your ten-year class reunion, please contact John Braswell, Alumni Relations Manager. You can also request an MPCS Class Reunion Guidebook.
