Parents

Parents are an integral part of the McDonell Area Catholic School (MACS) community. As the most important educators in children's lives, parents lay the Christian foundation for the educational partnership we incorporate into our curriculum. The partnership between MACS and our families is vital for student success and we are grateful for the valuable role parents play in our community. The MACS parent organizations are a wonderful avenue for parents to get involved by volunteering, serving, and getting to know other families.

Communication
If your contact information has changed, please notify the central office by contacting Administrative Assistant Kathy Adams at 715.723.0538 x3301. This would include address, phone, and email for child's records. You can also change your information in the Parent Portal of Infinite Campus.

     Infinite Campus Parent and Student Portal

Infinite Campus App Download at iTunes or through Google Play. The school district ID for this download is GBKXLN

Infinite Campus is a portal for both parents and student. A login is handed out when a student is first enrolled. Check the portal regularly to keep students on track with assignments, announcements, lunch balances and more. Most of the parent information from the school is sent electronically. MACS news is sent at least once a week and includes upcoming events and a monthly newsletter. If you are not receiving the news or other MACS related emails, please send your name, student's name, and grade to Clare Nelson, Marketing and Communications Coordinator (Email).

     SignUp - VolunteerSpot

SignUp (formally known as VolunteerSpot) is a scheduling service our school system and parent organizations utilize to organize volunteers for an event. Volunteers login with their email and then choose the date, event and duty they would like to perform. Notifications about the event and reminders will be sent through email. 

Social Media
If you're interested in keeping up with MACS on social media, be sure to visit and like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter @McDonell_HS and check in with Instagram #TheMackWay.

    McDonell Senior, Calvin Betters is trying to beat the world record of 5,340 chin-ups in a 24-hour period. From July 23 to July 24, 2022, he hopes to complete 5,500 chin-ups. To support the community while accomplishing his goal, Calvin wants to raise $5,500, a dollar for each chin-up, for United Way of the Greater Chippewa Valley. Please consider supporting Calvin and United Way!

    Currently, Calvin is looking for the aid of a total of 24 volunteers to judge his record as well as keep track of time. There will be 12 two hour shifts, each shift requires a total of two judges. The key part of each judge is that they can not already know or be affiliated with Calvin so as to ensure that the official guidelines are followed. If you are able to volunteer as a judge, please sign up at signup.com If you are not looking to volunteer, but are interested in making a donation, please visit 4giving.com

    We offer our prayers for Aly and her family as they prepare for her surgery on May 29th.  We pray that great faith, perseverance, patience and endurance are among the first fruits of the Spirit that are granted to her, in this time of great pain and anticipation of healing.  We pray and ask You to come and take Your place, in spirit, in the doctors, nurses and specialists. Bless all those who will aid her in her medical needs.  May she receive healing in Your blessed name Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.

    Terry Shepardson, a Vietnam veteran whose wife passed away recently. He will be making a long journey to move back to his hometown. Please pray that all goes well for him on his move back to his hometown of La Crosse, WI from Myrtle Beach, SC.

    The innocent lives of Ukrainian and Russian citizens who find themselves in a war they do not want.

    Our spiritually adopted babies and those struggling with everyday needs, all MACS students, families, staff, and alumni.
