MPA Parent Talks

We have decided to call these meetings “Parent Talks,” and as the parent of an MMS student, you are encouraged to come and be a part of them! 
Parent Talks are more than just meetings; they include timely, meaningful topics presented by school administrators and/or outside speakers. 
Our next Parent Talk is this Wednesday, 9/25 at 9:15am in MMS Auditorium
(Come at 9am for coffee!)
Vaping Presentation + Meet our New School Resource Officer (SRO)
 
Principal Somers will introduce the new School Resource Officer (SRO) Officer Stuart Schwengerer, and Dennis Bludnicki from Liberation Programs will make a presentation on vaping and how to discuss the dangers with your child.
