MPMS Families,

Thank you for your continued support of your child as we continue our Standards of Learning (SOLs) tests through the next two weeks of school. It is crucial for students to put forth their best efforts on these key assessments, as they are a valuable measure of their academic progress and help guide future instruction. Please make sure your child comes to school each day with their fully charged Chromebook and charging cord. This will make sure they are ready for testing as well as daily instruction.

May at MPMS has been full of joy and celebration. Please enjoy the pictures/articles from our Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week, Band and Choir Concerts, the MPCS Art Show, and some very exciting news about special awards MPMS has recently received!

As we approach the final days of the school year, please take a few moments to review the calendar of events. You'll see that we continue SOL testing over the next two weeks and have special events planned for the last week of school.

VDOE Announces: Parent Registration for K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants Now Open

The Virginia Department of Education is now accepting applications from parents for tutoring microgrants for their children through Governor Glenn Youngkin’s K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants program. Youngkin created the program to help Virginia families address the impact of the pandemic on student learning.

The $30 million program provides $1,500 grants to parents of school-age children for tutoring in English, mathematics, science and history, as well as foreign languages required to meet diploma requirements. Children from homes with family incomes at 300% or less of the federal poverty level may qualify for $3,000 grants. Grants may also be used for support services such as speech language pathology and reading interventions.

“We are excited to open the K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants application window just as school divisions are providing parents with Student Assessment Summary Reports detailing their students’ academic strengths and the areas they need support to be on track with their peers,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Lisa Coons said. “It is essential that parents have both the information and the support that the report and the grants provide. I encourage every parent to take advantage of free tutoring to support their child.”

Available services include in-person, online and hybrid tutoring provided one-on-one and in small group or large-group settings. Parents of students with disabilities may also use up to $750 of their awards for the purchase of assistive technologies specified in their child’s Individualized Education Plan or 504 Plan.

The grant program is open to parents of any public, private, parochial or home-school student in grades K-12 residing in Virginia. The first step in the process is to visit VDOE’s K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants page and create an application account for either a $1,500 or $3,000 grant.

Once parents are notified that their application has been accepted and approved, they will be able to log into the K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants “digital wallet” to select from a variety of vetted, pre-approved tutors.

All grant payments will be issued directly by VDOE to selected tutors and service providers with no out-of-pocket expenses to families. At least $750 of each grant must be spent by August 15; otherwise, the remaining funds will be reallocated to other applicants.

News and Helpful Tips from the MPCS Nurses

A Note From Nursing…

There have been an increased number of meningococcal disease reported in eastern Virginia.

This is a serious bacterial infection that can spread through the exchange of respiratory and throat secretions.

The meningitis vaccine can provide protection against meningococcal disease and students should receive their first dose prior to entering 7th grade. A second booster is required prior to entering 12th grade.

To help our Manassas Park students obtain these required vaccines, plans are underway to host a vaccine clinic on the afternoon of May 3rd.

Parents to Rising 7th graders (current 6th graders):

Please see the important letters from the VDH regarding all three required vaccines: HPV, Tdap, and Meningococcal:
