Welcome to the Middlesex Parents’ Association (MPA). We are an organization comprised of all parents of Middlesex students. Our mission is to foster a strong, integrated community of faculty, staff, students, and parents through supporting communication and sponsoring activities that enrich the school community.
During the 2015-16 school year, the MPA has five Saturday morning meetings which present key information for current parents. Please refer to the meeting schedule at the end of this letter. Parents are encouraged to attend in person or to join the live electronic broadcast of each meeting. Head of School Kathy Giles as well as select faculty and staff attend and participate in every meeting, and we also invite thought-provoking guest speakers to address topics relevant to you as a Middlesex parent.
The MPA is a parent-run, all-volunteer organization. Getting involved with the MPA is a great way to meet other parents and support the school, whether you live far away or nearby. This year, the MPA will not request annual dues. All parents are automatically members of the MPA. We do hope that, throughout the year, parents will choose to contribute to requests for volunteering and donations for activities and events, such as class BBQs, the Faculty and Staff Appreciation Luncheon, and the Casino Night Breakfast.
We encourage you to complete the electronic Parent Volunteer Form and let us know how you would like to be involved.
The MPA provides online access to each of our meetings so that all parents have the opportunity to attend our meetings, whether in person or virtually. Instructions about how to join the live electronic broadcast of each meeting will be provided in the POND parent newsletter. Notes from all of our meetings are also posted online.
Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions or ideas to share.
