Get Set For the Final Week of School!

Lower School Vocabulary Bee: June 6
Monday, June 6 is the long-awaited Vocabulary Bee in Lower School. Students have learned new vocabulary words throughout the year through our “Word of the Week” program. Developing a broader vocabulary is essential to learning to read, write, and communicate. The greater number of words children know, the more they can interpret ideas from others and express their own ideas verbally or in writing. Learning new vocabulary also builds reading comprehension, which is essential to learning to read more complex materials.

Twenty students qualified to be in the vocabulary bee this year. They will participate in the bee on June 6 and share their vocabulary knowledge. Lower School students and the participants families and friends are invited to watch the bee unfold.

2022 Moving Up Ceremony: June 7
Students in grade 4 and grade 8 will be honored at the Moving Up Ceremony on Tuesday, June 7 at 1:30 PM in the Nicholson Center. Families and friends are invited to this celebration as students transition to Middle and Upper School! Moving up to a new division is a milestone and reason to celebrate!

Dear Lower School Families,
It is time for me to say goodbye to my beloved Lower School students and families. After 35 years of pure joy as a teacher and administrator I leave MPA with much love and gratitude for all of you. I have truly enjoyed my time at MPA and value the relationships I have made over the years. I am grateful for your partnership and the opportunity to work with your child/children. I will miss you dearly but will hold the memories of my time at MPA close to my heart!

Have a wonderful summer! I send blessings for continued success!

With gratitude,
