PA News and Notes

Dear Parents,

We can hardly believe another school year is coming to a close. It is has been a pleasure to serve you in our capacity as co-chairs of the MSPA. We hope that you benefited from and enjoyed the programs and events that the PA was able to bring to the parent community this year. As always, please let us know how we can better serve you in the year ahead.

Yesterday afternoon, we hosted the Appreciation Celebration for our faculty and staff. The event spoke of the deep gratitude we have for the faculty and staff who do so much for our children. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the gifts and raffle items we provided. The faculty and staff enjoyed an afternoon of camaraderie and fun. Thank you to Tamsen Brown, Elizabeth Flowers, Anne Millington, Raynya Simmons, Joanne Chen, Amy Jones, Samantha West for all they did on behalf of all Middle School parents.

Many thanks close out our year. First, we give a big shout out to our grade-level representatives this year: Bee Chaffers, Allison Hong, and Michelle Fallon. Thank you for a great job and for the time you devoted to leading our grade level efforts. Thank you, also, to Debbie Scudiere in her role as MSPA treasurer. We could not have pulled the year off without you. Thank you to Dr. Anderson for her support and vision. We send a big thanks and a warm goodbye to Marlena Alex who kept us rolling with our newsletter each week and who was a great source of support to us. Thank you to all the parent volunteers who served this year for our various events. It has been a wonderful year and we mostly want to thank all of you for your support, understanding, and laughter throughout the year. The reason the MSPA exists is to support you and to build our middle school parent community.

Finally, I want to thank Alison Siegel who will be stepping down from her two-year term as Co-Chair of the MSPA. It has been a total joy to work by your side. You have brought vision and momentum to all that we do. You will be missed. I send out a big thank you to Michelle Fallon who will be serving with me next year as the new MSPA co-chair. We look forward to bringing new and exciting programs to our parent community. You will be hearing from both of us soon as we dig deep into planning next year’s events.

We hope that you have a wonderful, safe, and peaceful summer with your families.

Thank you!

Alison Siegel

MSPA Co-Chairs


P.S. – Some reminders from last week:

  • Welcoming New Middle School Families— In September, we will host a Welcome to the Middle School coffee for these parents and their host parents. We hope that you will keep this in mind as you plan for the year ahead.
  • MSPA Survey and Volunteer Sign-up—In the next few weeks, you will receive a survey from us seeking your input as to how we can serve you better as the parent advisory. Please help us by taking a few minutes to complete our survey. You will also receive a sign-up genius link for our volunteer committees. Volunteering with the Middle School Parent Association is a great way to get involved with the school and to meet other parents. We can’t do it without you!
  • Seeking Speakers—A core function of the Middle School Parent Association is to bring in dynamic speakers for our parent and student community. Do you have an area of expertise that you can share with other parents and/or students? If so, please contact Erin Hull, at erindhull@msn.com. We have a wealth of talent and expertise in our own community and we would be grateful if you would be willing to share it with us. Are you shy? Then perhaps, you could recommend a colleague or friend to present to us. We hope to hear from you as we are now putting together our speaker calendar for next year.
