Wonderful Week One!

What a great first week here at Mill Pond! Each classroom has been filled with enthusiasm and excitement as classmates have been getting to know each other. There have been so many ice-breakers and team building exercises that have been both fun and helpful. We had our first whole school assembly with over 1000 students and teachers all gathered together. The positive energy that lives here was on full display! It is great to see students starting to get into routines and build relationships with their new teachers and their new learning environments. The year is off to a great start and our community here is ready to run!

Please join us Tuesday, Sept. 18th at 7:00PM in the professional development room at Mill Pond for our first meeting of the new school year. All parents and guardians of current Mill Pond students are welcome and encouraged to attend. This is a great opportunity to get to know fellow Mill Pond parents and guardians, learn more about the MPPG and how it supports our school community, hear about upcoming programs and events, and explore ways you on how you can get involved. Can't wait to see you there! (Please note that MPPG meetings are typically held the second Thursday of each month but our September meeting date was changed due to scheduling conflicts.)
