    Students should already be registered for the 2017-2018 school year. Early registration of students ensures that we will have enough teachers, supplies, and space for our students on the first day of school Wednesday, August 23rd. You will receive a phone call from office personnel if you have not completed registration materials for your student(s). If you have new neighbors, please make sure that they have contacted the school to register any new students. Your help will be invaluable in making sure we are ready for the first day of school. Thank you in advance for your help!

    WHAT’s NEW?

    MPS now has sets of chrome books for students to use. This is in addition to the iPads that are already in each classroom.

    The main office has been painted and is looking great! We cannot wait for you to see the change.

IN CLOSING

I am so proud to work with such an amazing community! We truly have the most wonderful students, parents and teachers.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your support of our school. Teachers and personnel are working hard to provide a quality education for your children. Your support and effort is critical in order to connect your child’s learning to everyday life.

I am strongly encouraging all parents to immediately become involved in your child’s learning this year. Please work with teachers and staff who can help you to provide your child with resources, encouragement, and support. School and home must work together on this educational journey to prepare our students in becoming college, career and community ready. If you are interested in serving on our School Advisory Committee (SAC) this year, please let me know.

I look forward to working together this year. Please feel free to contact me at school if you have comments, questions, or concerns. I am honored to be a part of your child’s education!

Sincerely,

 

Melissa Langietti
