MP Update for June 7

No school Monday/tomorrow for staff work day.

Spirit Day Friday – Pillow Head Day

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month!

We express our school’s support of our LGBTQ+ students, staff, community members and allies. We see you and we stand with you!

LGBTQ+ Pride Month is celebrated each June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City, an uprising to resist the police harassment and persecution to which the LGBTQ+ community was regularly subjected. This event marked the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against people who identify as LGBTQ+.

While we have made progress on the path to equality, we recognize there is work remaining to achieve equality for our LGBTQ+ community. We have proudly raised a Pride Flag at MP and invite you to join us in affirming our support for our LGBTQ+ students, families and community; and also in recognizing their vast contributions to society. See below for info about the Pride Book Fair in partnership with Third Place Books.
