Parents’ Association

How can you help shape your child’s education?

Every child’s education is the larger community’s responsibility. At MPH, parents take that responsibility especially seriously—while having fun sharing their time and talent, and creating lasting friendships.

Our active Parents’ Association provides an essential support system for MPH students, teachers, and staff. Our mission is to engage, inspire, and energize MPH parents to build and maintain a strong sense of community and to actively support the school’s overall goals and mission through participation, idea sharing, and positive communication with each other and administration.

We offer volunteer opportunities to suit a wide range of interests and schedules. Current parents should visit the My MPH section of this website to view resources such as room parent listings, meeting schedules, and division event schedules.

Parents’ Association Events and Initiatives


Every year we host a luncheon for all employees on an in-service day. This year we are returning to the much-loved potluck, where families provide dishes to be shared. You can sign up here to bring a dish. Sign up here. We also ask for donations of gift cards valued at $25 or less that we share with all employees. After the break, there will be a collection box at reception where you can leave any gift cards. We will collect through March 1st. If you would like, you can Venmo Maria Besaw @Maria-Besaw, making a note “MPH employee gift card” and we will purchase the gift cards for you.


TUBING – Monday, March 4

Tubing at Four Seasons, 5:30-7:30 p.m. Fingers crossed we’ll have some snow! The cost is $10 per person sledding, cash or check at the door. We will have hot chocolate and s’mores to cap off the evening! Please note, this is not a drop-off event. Parents/guardians must stay with LS and MS students. Sign up here.



The Parents’ Association, along with the Division Heads for the Middle School and Upper School, Matt Spear and Fred Montas, invite you to join us for a parent social prior to each Moving-Up Night. You can connect with other parents and take the opportunity to speak with our Admissions team about any questions you might have about re-enrollment.

Online Clothing Store

Looking for MPH attire for you and your family? The PA offers a pop-up shop for apparel, with proceeds benefitting PA events and initiatives. The MPH Parents’ Association has been looking into the most efficient and cost-effective way to get the MPH apparel our kids want to our families. We are pleased to announce we will be having a rolling online shop that will be open for two-week intervals. At the end of the two weeks, the shop will close, and the order should be available within 10-14 days of the closing date. The next week, the shop will open again. To help save on shipping cost, the Parents’ Association will pick up the orders and have them available for families to pick up at the school.

Our plan is to have classic MPH clothing always available, while having other designs available for shorter periods of time. We will let you know when new designs are ready.
