Parents Association Events

Parents are an integral part of the MMS community, and the Parents Association provides a friendly and vibrant forum for supporting the school. Parents sponsor social events to welcome new families, contribute to annual giving, organize the holiday book sale, and stage a benefit in the spring. Room parents facilitate relationships among families and provide support for classroom teachers. Monthly meetings feature speakers on education and parenting topics.

“The parents' picnic made me feel welcome, the social events for parents helped us meet other families, and at PA meetings there is very much a sense that any contribution of time and effort and involvement will be welcome.”
