Since 1977, Park Road Books has been the cornerstone of independent bookstores and today is the only full-service independent bookstore in Charlotte. Located just down the road from our school in the Park Road Shopping Center, Park Road Books prides itself on finding the right book for the right person. In the past they have generously provided gift cards for our teachers during staff appreciation week and they routinely host author events and local book clubs. MPTS teacher Ms. Wilfong has firsthand experiences with the author meet and greets which have highlighted her very own children's books. Lets show our support and stop by the store which is currently offering curbside pick up as well as in-store shopping. Visit www.parkroadbooks.com for more information.
MPTS is proud to once again partner with Heart Math Tutoring for the 2020-2021 school year. Heart Math Tutoring is geared towards students in grades 3-5 and is a fun, effective way to make a difference in just 30-60 minutes per week working 1:1 with a student identified as being below grade level in math. This is an invaluable asset for MPTS students that need a little boost and we need your help!

The MPTS PTA will be recognizing local businesses who have been extraordinary supporters of our school over the years and who can use some extra support during these difficult times.
Our first honorary business is Zen Fusion located nearby in Dilworth; which offers both Asian and Spanish cuisine. The owners of Zen, Phong and Jenny, have shown incredible support to our school over the years. Their two daughters attended MPTS from K-5th grade and though they have since graduated on to middle school, Phong and Jenny have remained incredibly generous - catering lunches, PTA functions, and have gone above and beyond to show their appreciation to and for the MPTS staff over the years.
Let’s honor and celebrate them by dining in their restaurant (with newly updated COVID precautions) or ordering take-out. They have been huge advocates and supporters of MPTS for years, let's return the favor and support them!
