Letter from the Presidents

Dear Families,

We hope this email finds you and all of your family healthy and safe.

As we begin the last week of school we would like to say thank you to ALL of the faculty and staff at the Middle School. We know what a challenge it has been to shift to a completely different style and method of teaching our students. We know that like us you have found it difficult at times. But from the bottom of our hearts we say Thank you. Congratulations to Lisa Leonard and Deb Casey on your retirements!!

We'd also like to welcome our rising 5th grade families. If you have any questions or concerns or just curious about 5th grade in general, we are here to help you navigate this year's untraditional transition. Our children have all made the leap from Pond Cove to the Middle School and they have survived it (and so have we). Please don't hesitate to reach out. Our emails are on the signature off this letter.

The student council has chosen this week to be Spirit Week! Get out your Red, White and Blue, your Hawaiian shirts and your cape wear.

Many have reached out over the past few weeks asking about 8th grade celebration. There is a committee working diligently to make sure there is a celebration and their message to everyone is: "8th Grade Celebration is in the works! Stay tuned for details and a date coming this week."

The MSPA is looking for ideas and new ways of fundraising in the coming months of continued social distancing. We not only would love your ideas, but the help to launch and bring to fruition your ideas. As many of our fundraisers depend upon us getting together in large groups, we know that many of these events may not happen next year. We fundraise for Teacher Grants, which bring new and exciting programs to our students. Some fundraisers have been, mum sales in the fall, gift catalog sales in the winter, etc. Please reach out to Heather and Jen we welcome your input and help.

2020-2021 MSPA volunteer positions available:
  • Newsletter editor (mail chimp)
  • Facebook/social media editor
  • Website editor (WordPress)
The previous positions could all be done by 1 person - and would take about 1 hour per week of time total
  • Arts and Crafts Fair Co-Chairs and committee members (November 7th is the tentative date for the fair)
  • Basketball Bonanza Chair (March, 8th grade)
  • Basketball Bonanza Raffle Chair (5th grade)
  • Basketball Bonanza Concessions (6th grade)
  • 2021 8th Grade celebration chair and committee members (June)
Enjoy the start of the summer!
