We want to work with you to keep our communication lines open to ensure our children have the best learning experience. -Your Monfort School Association
Thank you to those of you who returned your completed survey. We appreciate your feedback! I want to apologize to those of you who commented on our lack of communication with parents. We want to improve in this area, therefore we are sending this email.
For those of you who are not familiar with MSA, let me give you a brief explanation. MSA stands for Monfort School Association and is the Parent/Teacher Group here at Monfort. Our purpose is:
· To enhance and support the education of children at Monfort Elementary School by partnering with the Monfort Staff.
· To develop a closer connection between school and home by encouraging parental involvement and to improve the environment of Monfort through volunteer and financial support.
· To provide a forum of discussion and support for Monfort parents and teachers to be a vehicle for communication among the school principal, teachers and parents.
The MSA are the hosts of the special events at the school (Fall Festival, Holiday Shop, etc). Our goal is to be there to do the work so the staff can come enjoy the events with the students and their families which allows them to socialize outside of the normal school day. We believe that parent involvement greatly enhances your child’s education experience! Please look in your child’s backpack for the list of events that will take place at Monfort for the rest of the year. We hope it is helpful for you to have EVERTHING that is happening at Monfort (not just MSA events) on one sheet so you can mark them on your calendar. I do want to highlight a couple of MSA Events that are coming up:
· March 3rd, @ –Movie Night (Free Admission, concessions will be sold)
· April 27th, @ - Sock Hop ($2 per student, parents and non Monfort siblings free)
· May 11th, @ – Trailblazers Art Exhibit (You will have the opportunity to purchase your child’s artwork.)
We hope to see you at these fun social events, but would also love your help if you’re able to volunteer at any of these events. Please
email us at email@example.com if you would like to help. We are also providing a taco bar for the teachers on the of Parent/Teacher conferences (Feb 9th). If you are willing to drop off something for that, please let Elizabeth know at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will let you know what we need. We hope to really bless all of the teachers and staff during teacher appreciation week, so please watch for info coming home about that as we get closer to May.
Finally, I want to extend a personal invitation to each of you to attend our next meeting on Thursday, February 16th at 6pm in the Learning Lab. Why attend a meeting? To hear the plan for upcoming events and offer YOUR input. If you’re not able to attend the meeting, you can always view the minutes on the Monfort Website, or simply click here http://www.greeleyschools.org/
