Myers Park Traditional School's Staff Appreciation Week is next week March 22nd - 26th! This year, more than any other, our MPTS Teachers, Staff and Administration have shown all of us what Superheroes really are. Not all heroes wear capes, but ours all wear masks!
Each homeroom class is partnered with a special Staff Member so everyone feels the love! You should have received an email with your class pairings but if you did not or if you have any questions please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s how we can make our teachers and staff feel extra special!
Monday: Make sure your teacher and staff member have the energy for Superhero work. Bring in a favorite snack or treat. For a list of your teacher and staff member’s favorite treats, click here.

Don’t miss this year’s virtual Book Fair! Support our school and help your child discover new books, favorite characters, and complete series. We have Book Fair exclusives, new releases, value packs, and more. Share the love of reading and shop the Fair.
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!
