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 Cathy Greenseth, Director of Communications (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.

    Please join us in thanking Mrs. Louanne Baier ‘64 for her support to the students and McDonell Central Catholic High School. On May 5, at the Chippewa Falls Chamber’s Excellence in Education Banquet, MACS recognized Louanne as our Unsung Hero. She has volunteered this past 10 years and continues to volunteer five hours every Tuesday and Thursday in the food service. Her kitchen skills are much appreciated by both students and staff, especially when those specialty items like potato dumplings are being served. Thank you and congratulations Mrs. Baier!

    One of our greatest hopes for the future is that the Church in Chippewa Falls will grow and thrive. Since last October, all the parishes in Chippewa Falls and MACS have been involved in a process to plan for the future. There have been site visits, meetings with parish and school leaders, and studies of area-wide, school and parish data.
