Launch Into Learning

In response to the overwhelming need our community has for safe and educational learning spaces for Fall 2020, MCM has created a Launch into Learning initiative in which Day Camp, After-School Programs, and All-Day Programs for children PreK4-5th grade will be offered. The current school day offerings for Launch into Learning will end Friday, January 15th.  

As JPS planning to transition to in-person school on January 19th, MCM’s Launch into Learning is also transitioning its offerings.  On Tuesday, January 19th we will host After- School Programming only. MCM is currently looking at transportation options with Spann Elementary, McWillie Elementary, And Obama Magnet. 

 All After-School attendees will have MCM’s signature education programing, outdoor play, museum exploration, and story time. Prices include all supplies for inhouse programming and an afternoon snack. Capacity will be limited in accordance with local and state laws. Please contact Patti Reiss at or 601.981.5469 if you have questions.
