one of the core missions of the mpapa is community building. being a part of a community is a fundamental human need and a key element in helping children, families, faculty and staff to flourish and thrive. community building strengthens our school and enriches our lives. the mpapa builds community by creating events that allow students and parents to interact outside the normal school day. you can be a part of those events and programs by volunteering as well as attending. volunteering is a great way to get to know other parents, students, faculty, and staff. we invite you to explore all that the pa has to offer and ask you to get involved. any amount of time is needed and appreciated! for more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
