To this day, I enjoy taking classes and learning so that I can bring valuable information back to our school and classrooms.  I have been teaching at MCS since 1987 and have been MCS’s Administrator/Principal since February of 1995.  Over the years, I have had the opportunity to teach or substitute teach in every grade level from preschool – 8th grade.  Each grade level offers interesting subject material while each stage of learning is fascinating.  I enjoy being an integral part of the learning process.  I enjoy those “aha” moments when ideas and skills click for students.  My daughter, Sydney, attended MCS preschool – 8th grade.  My husband Randy has served and continues to serve on the Finance Committee.  MCS: It’s parents, students, and school mission has become a cherished part of our lives.  When I am not at MCS, you will find me exploring a national or state park, taking photos, or spending time with my family.

I love the Christ-centered culture at Monroe Christian School.  We have something rare and very special here – a staff who loves Jesus and ministers that godly love to the students and their families.  That, in combination with providing academic excellence, makes me proud to be a part of this community.  My two boys attended MCS and received an excellent education.  Both are successful adults who were blessed with a great Christian foundation at MCS.  I love living in the Pacific Northwest and exploring God’s creation here.  I especially enjoy beachcombing; collecting sea glass, shells, interesting rocks, and other treasures.  I also love to read and work on puzzles.

Mindy Orcutt–Secretary since 2018

I attended Monroe Christian School from kindergarten through 8th grade and now my two children both attend here.  It is such a delight to see the joy and excitement in the children here and to know that MCS is providing a godly foundation at this critical stage in their lives.  I am enjoying getting to know the students and their parents and blessed by the opportunity to work here.  I enjoy spending time with my family, reading books, and drinking coffee.


Monroe Christian School is a Christ-Centered Community equipping God’s children for service in His kingdom.
