Welcome

 

Welcome back to a new school year! There is no doubt, this year will be different in many ways than we have all experienced in the past. With the uncertainties of the last several months overshadowing the excitement of starting a new school year, the MPHS PTA is still excited to welcome back all students, parents, teachers and staff to the MP Junior/Senior HS. While the current circumstances will challenge us in many ways this year, the PTA is committed to still providing the enrichment, resources, community involvement, events, activities and services we have in the past. We will continue to reinvent how that looks as the situation calls and will constantly update you as the activities take shape.


Our theme this year is WE ARE...TOGETHER! There are many adjectives to insert into the … - better, stronger, committed, mightier, prouder, powerful, thriving, greater, and more! This year, we MUST pull together to stay #MPSTRONG!


We wouldn’t be able to provide all of the many resources and programs we do without the loyalty of our members. Please strongly consider becoming a member of the MPHS PTA. By doing so, you are supporting the many events, activities and resources we provide, including but not limited to the annual 7th grade bagel breakfast, student planners for all students, guest speaker, Cultural Awareness activities/events, senior scholarships, summer grant opportunities for all grade levels, teacher appreciation, field trip financial support and more. To become a member, simply go to https://mphs.memberhub.store/.  As a member, you will have access to the school community directory.  Also, as a reminder, in order for any graduation senior to be eligible for a PTA scholarship, a parent must be a member each year of the student’s HS career. NEW THIS YEAR: If you join BEFORE September 30th, you will be entered into a raffle to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card!  Don’t wait, join now! We appreciate the membership of all parents and teachers.  


Stay connected this year by reading the monthly PTA newsletter, intermittent eblast announcements, be sure to join our Facebook page and be sure to attend the 3 yearly General meetings. There is great and important information that is shared and we want to make sure you are connected and informed all year long. Our first general meeting is scheduled for September 22nd. This first meeting will be held in a virtual setting. Stay tuned for more information about the meeting and how you can “attend”.  


We also ask that you get involved in the MPHS PTA to keep it strong and to be able to continually provide valuable programs and services. There are no huge commitments but there are still ways to help us this year in the many activities, programs, etc. we have planned for our students and teachers/staff - there is something for everyone! In our first e-newsletter, and all subsequent e-newsletters, there will be a Volunteer Google Form to sign up to help in a variety of ways. This is also a great way to build new relationships with other parents and to be part of the wonderful Midland Park school community.


We look forward to a wonderful year “together”, however that may look!  Again, I encourage you to join the PTA this year and get involved with one of the many committees. Help us to make this a successful year for our children. If you have any questions or suggestions, please reach out to me via phone at 201-230-3972 or via email at kerrilynnschaefer@gmail.com.

We wish you and your family continued health and safety.  

Sincerely,

Kerri Schaefer

MPHS PTA President
