My name is Nina Davis. As the new Maclay Parents Organization Chair, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of you to the 2016-2017 school year at Maclay School. I have been a member of the Maclay Family since 2004. I have two boys, Wyatt and Sawyer. Wyatt is beginning the tenth grade and Sawyer will be in the sixth grade. Using Maclay’s “one school initiative,” my mission is to provide parents with more communication for parent involvement.
All parents of Maclay School are members of the MPO. MPO coordinates school events, provides support to staff, and improves student to faculty relations. Maclay Parents Organization uses events for parents and families to come together in a safe and social environment. MPO is not just about parent involvement. In order to become successful, MPO events keep families engaged and create positivity so that we can enhance school moral.
Every parent has an opportunity to support by volunteering on committees throughout the year. Sign up sheets will be provided at New Family Orientation, Open House, and Back to School Coffee. Weekly email blasts are also provided as reminders of upcoming events. Your participation as a committee member is greatly appreciated. MPO will also provide ambassadors to help answer any questions or concerns about school events. On Maclay School’s website, there is also a place where you can just “Ask Rowdy” (email@example.com).
We will have our first MPO meeting on Tuesday, August 16 at 6pm at the library. This will be a great opportunity to meet some committee chairs and other volunteers. During the meeting, you will get a brief summary of all the events for the 2016-2017 school year. You will also be provided with an MPO info packet that will consist of dates and specifications of each event. If you cannot attend the meeting but are interested in learning more on how you can contribute, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to working with you and keep you engaged so you may have a positive experience as a part of the Maclay family. Don’t forget to follow Maclay School on Instagram and show school spirit with #truebluemaclay! See you at our first event of the year, Back to School Coffee located at the library courtyard on the first day of school!
Nina N. Davis, MPO Chair
