We’ve Got Spirit, Yes We Do!
The first Friday of each month, show your MQP spirit on Spirit Day! All students are encouraged to participate in this monthly service project by bringing in 2 items for donation to CROSS Services (local food shelf). In return, students may wear authorized Spirit Wear. Students who choose not to participate are required to be in school uniform.
First Friday Spirit Day is a way to thank our students for contributing food items to benefit those in need in our community.
Thank you for your generosity!

What is CROSS?

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me… I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.
Matthew 25:35-36, 40
