Staff Appreciation Week kicks off at MPTS on Monday, March 9th! On Thursday, March 12th we will announce the winner of the annual Lois B. Lee Teacher of the Year Award at a very special catered luncheon for the entire MPTS staff. In order for all teachers to attend, we must have two registered CMS volunteers to cover each classroom from 11:15am - 12:45pm, during the luncheon. We realize this is a large time commitment, but hope you will consider covering your child's class, a favorite past teacher's class, or even the class of a friend, so that ALL teachers may attend the luncheon. If you are able to volunteer please sign-up below, many classes still need 2 volunteers.

"Family Code Night" is a whole-school, whole-family MPTS event for kids grades K-5 and their parents. You'll play in parent-child teams to complete fun Code.org puzzles and challenges at your own pace, and learn core concepts in coding. Afterwards, you'll go home with a special "Code On at Home" guide to continue coding puzzles, learning and fun at home. No coding experience needed, laptops available if needed, a great experience to share with your kids!
5:30pm - 7:15pm
The program is free, but space is limited, so please sign up today!
Parents who want to help out as event Volunteers are welcome. And parents and kids with tech experience, or kids who have done the "Hour of Code" already, are encouraged to register as Code Coaches. We'll send you an advance prep memo and we'll meet up a few minutes early for orientation. We'll see you at Family Code Night! If you have any questions please contact Cathy Moore, Greg Boehm, or Mrs. Connor.
