President’s Corner

Welcome! It was so nice to meet all the new families at the outdoor work party.The outdoor space looks fantastic and ready for the new school year. Thank you! Also, a big thank you to Brigitt Whitescarver for organizing the work party.

Whether you are a returning family or new to MPS, the beginning of the school year can feel so, so busy and at times overwhelming. Last year was my son’s first year in school and I remember how the influx of emails, sign up sheets, paperwork, names to remember, and schedules had me wondering just what I had signed up for. I promise it gets so much easier once school begins and you get to know everyone better.

When my husband and I began looking at preschools, we knew we wanted a play-based school. We weren’t specifically looking for a co-op, but once we toured the school, met teacher Marty and saw the amazing outdoor space, we were sold. Working in the classroom allowed me to see my son grow over the year, get to know his classmates and see Marty and Lisa in action with the kids. I really love being a part of the school and meeting all the MPS families. It is so nice to be a part of a community that is working together for their children.

I hope everyone has a great year. If you ever have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me or my co-president, Angelica Duffy (mother to Aisling, pre-k). We are here to help!
