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.
