Message from the Principal / Mensaje de la directora

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to our 2021-2022 Virtual Back to School Night! We are excited that you can join us in the comfort of your homes. We hope you'll enjoy all the videos that our awesome teachers have thoughtfully put together!

With the pandemic, we understand that this school year will look different. We couldn't do what we love to do every day which is to educate our students without your continuous support! We appreciate you so much! Thank you!

In the spirit of working together, I want to share our MP Crew Song with you. In our previous Parent Newsletter, I referred to our school as an MP CREW school. We are not passengers in our student's education, but active participants. You are Home Crew members and we are the School Crew members. Together, I know we will provide the best education for our Student Crew members at MP.

Please check out this MP Crew song created by our very own 3rd-grade teacher, Mr. Kevin Nguyen! Let's learn the song together! It's a parody of the song sung by Smash Mouth called All Star.

Thank you,

Soar high, Eagles!

Mrs. Chung

MP Principal


Estimados padres / tutores:

¡Bienvenido a nuestra Noche Virtual de Regreso a Clases 2021-2022! Estamos emocionados de que pueda acompañarnos en la comodidad de sus hogares. ¡Esperamos que disfrutes de todos los videos que nuestros increíbles maestros han elaborado cuidadosamente!

Con la pandemia, entendemos que este año escolar se verá diferente. ¡No podríamos hacer lo que nos encanta hacer todos los días, que es educar a nuestros estudiantes sin su apoyo continuo! ¡Te apreciamos mucho!

En el espíritu de trabajar juntos, quiero compartir nuestra canción de MP Crew con ustedes. En nuestro Boletín para Padres anterior, me referí a nuestra escuela como una escuela MP CREW. No somos pasajeros en la educación de nuestros estudiantes, sino participantes activos. Ustedes son miembros de Home Crew y nosotros somos miembros de School Crew. Juntos, sé que brindaremos la mejor educación para los miembros de nuestro equipo de estudiantes en MP.

¡Miren esta canción de MP Crew creada por nuestro propio maestro de tercer grado, el Sr. Kevin Nguyen! ¡Aprendamos la canción juntos! Es una parodia de la canción cantada por Smash Mouth llamada All Star.


¡Vuela alto, Águilas!

Sra. Chung

Director de MP
