This week at MTMS: September 28th – October 3rd

Looks like we have a wonderful week of weather ahead! And as we march toward Fall, I watch my child – and I imagine all of our kids – marching forward, growing, and learning how to adjust to different times. I hope that each of you are finding moments of victory, and taking a beat to celebrate them. PTA-wise, your new Board is learning their roles, taking some training, and working through what these “different times” mean for the PTA. With that in mind, please join the PTA. We need your energy and ideas. We also, frankly, rely on your Membership to support our annual committments to Teachers and Students at Mt Tabor Middle School. Please see below to be reminded of other ways to support MTMS PTA by just going through your every day motions.
