Message from Melissa

We are looking forward to seeing your students tomorrow. I hope everyone was able to have a relaxing, fun-filled holiday break. I am excited for a fantastic second semester!

Please save the date for January 15th at 6:30 p.m. as the MTMS PTA is hosting a guest speaker for our community. Seth Wescott, a Licensed Masters Level Psychologist, will lead a discussion with parents about the difficult decisions our kids are faced with today. We hope you'll be able to attend this informative event at MT.
