A Birthday Book Story


From the Vroubel Family "Ian Vroubel ( K- Fiore) took out a library book called I’m Bad and when we opened it, we saw it was from the 2008 Birthday Club with Will Arzonico’s name on it. Will is our neighbor and graduated high school this month (Seton Hall Prep-class of 2021). This book was from the Birthday Club during Will’s kindergarten year. When we showed it to him and his family, everyone was amazed and excited. Will’s parents were happy to see that the book is still being read and shared with the school. I have attached pictures of Will and his kindergarten book as well as a picture of Ian and Will together holding the book :). There has to be a future tradition out of this story! Thank you MPE and the MPE library."

Device Collection for Students in Grades 2, 3, 4 and 5

The Technology Department will be collecting student devices for grades 2 through 5 in order to be able to prepare the devices for use for the 2021-2022 school year. Device collection will occur on Monday, June 21 for Grades 2 and 3 and Tuesday, June 22 for Grades 4 and 5. Please ensure your child brings their device and charger to school on the day their grade is assigned for collection. Any student that does not hand in a device and/or charger during the collection will be assessed a device fine in Genesis until the device and/or charger is returned.

Please note: Students in grades K and 1 will NOT need to bring in their device as they just received them in March.
