Annual Fund Campaign
Dear MP&MS Parents,
We are delighted to be officially kicking off the 2018-2019 MP&MS Annual Fund Campaign! This is a special time for the entire school to band together in support of MP&MS. It’s kind of like a school spirit week…we’ve been calling it the “Annual Fun Campaign!”
This year, the entire school community will be invited to share aspects of MP&MS for which they are particularly grateful. For us, it’s joyful students. We’ve all encountered the steady streams of smiling faces while walking through campus. MP&MS fosters a uniquely happy and enthusiastic atmosphere for learning. We’re excited for the parent community to channel this positive energy as we rally together in support of the Annual Fund, and we invite you to take a moment to reflect upon what you are especially grateful for.
The MP&MS Annual Fund is a crucial component of the operating budget that supports everything we love about our school – it is vital to sustaining our exceptional educational program, talented teachers, a beautiful and safe campus, special technology curriculum, and tuition assistance.
Support of the Annual Fund helps to create and sustain a culture of philanthropy at MP&MS. Our dedicated teachers work thoughtfully to instill values of generosity and compassion in our children. Please join us in leading by example and making MP&MS a philanthropic priority with a gift that is personally meaningful to your family.
Whether it’s as a class volunteer, event host, field trip driver, or through your gift to the Annual Fund, thank you for all you do for the MP&MS community.
With Joyful Gratitude,
Skye Pillsbury (Clark, 6th)
Brian Taylor (Avery, 2nd & Olivia, 4th)
