Requesting Survey Input from Parents

IMPORTANT! We want to hear from you! As a PTSA we are thinking about ways to build a more concrete community in our school. What can we do to help all kids feel like they belong and are responsible for themselves and to each other? Please take the time to do this survey! Parent Survey has 10 questions – 5 minutes! Please let us know what you think. Thank you so much for your support!

Yearbooks Are Here!

Forget to pre-order your yearbook? No worries! Keep Calm and . . . still get one for $20.00. Available during the last week of school – be on the lookout in the lobby or (weather permitting) outside the front entrance, before/after school from June 21st-23rd.

Yearbook Volunteers Needed for Next Year!

We are looking for parent volunteers to help out with the 2017-2018 MP Yearbook. We need lots of parent volunteers to take photos in class rooms, at field trips, and events. Just take photos at the events you are already at and email them to us. We also will need help “tagging” the photos. If you are interested in helping out email us at
