MES Parent University
One of the things we're most passionate about at the MES PTA is helping parents to feel better connected and more knowledgeable about everything going on at our school. That's why we brought back our Parent University series of meetings starting during the 2022-2023 school year!
Whether you're a new MES family or you've been here for a bit but still have questions, this series is the place to get answers! These sessions are intended to be informal but informative, where experienced MES parents and school personnel can share their wisdom with our broader community. Meetings will be scheduled throughout the school year and will focus on different topics as needed by our community.
Have a question that you want to see covered during an upcoming Parent University session? You can submit them via this google form, which will then be used to inform future sessions.
