Welcome to all new and returning MSSM families!
We are approaching the beginning of a new year at MSSM. The Parents’ Association (MSSM PA) enters this year with a returning group on the Executive Committee (EC). The team is enthusiastic and energized to build on a growing and positive parent community..
This year we will face some new challenges and opportunities especially in the residential setting. The increase in Triple and Quad rooms for students means that we as a community will need to be supportive of our students, staff, and faculty. Mental and physical health is going to be of paramount importance in order to create a successful environment for our students.
I welcome each of you to join in the community through the many opportunities the MSSM PA provides. To list but a few:
-In October, during Parent’s Weekend we will be holding an MSSM PA meeting. We will be discussing some key issues, opportunities and voting on items such as our By-Laws.
-We have an active Facebook group that is open to members of the MSSM PA. You can find us by following this link and requesting to join:
-We will be holding regional parent meetings throughout the state this year, which is a relaxed opportunity to connect with both new and returning families.
-Consider joining the Parents’ Association Executive Committee (EC) for next year. The current members are all parents of seniors and will need to be replaced. We welcome you to join us throughout the year to learn what it is like to be on the EC.
In addition, we, the EC, are always open to hear from you on a more personal level. Below are the names and contact information for each of the MSSM PA Executive Committee. Please feel free to contact any one of us if you have any questions, comments or compliments.
|Tom Gilley, President
|Donna Foster, Vice-president
|Darlene Michaud, Treasurer
|Wendy Zwecker, Secretary
A packing list and a tips/FAQ sheet is posted on our FB page as well as attached to this welcome email/letter. A useful list and place to begin planning for the year ahead.
I look forward to seeing you and your students in the halls and around the state this year. I wish you all an exciting and adventurous year.
MSSM PA President
