Hello Cheetahs,

Welcome to Cheetah Decades Day, watch the video to see who is representing the 90's, 80's and the 70's.  Listen to see if your class has a shout out this week.  Everyone deserves a high five and a pat on the back, keep up the perseverance and great work!

Hello MP Families and Students! 

We hope you have been able to find a good routine so far and things are running smoothly for you. But, we also recognize that the rollercoaster of emotions continues for many, including us and our kids! We hope these weekly social-emotional learning (SEL) resources are helping some. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything additional or different in terms of support.

The below activities are about mindfulness, offered by Mindful Schools. This may be a familiar or completely unknown skill to you, and that’s okay! These are simple to follow lessons designed for kids and are completely FREE. They’re 20-30 minutes long; some add in movement and others can have an amazing calming effect! Do them all or pick and choose. We recommend numbers 3, 5, 8 and 9 especially.
