MSMS PTO Meeting Oct. 11 @7pm in Library

28 09 2017

The next MSMS PTO meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 11th at 7:00 PM Marshall Simonds Middle School Library – (2nd floor)

While details are not finalized yet, the main topic will be the “Screenagers” movie  the BEF (Burlington Education Foundation) is partnering with MSMS to show parents and kids the impact of screen time on the family.  Plan is to show on a date to be determined in November.  In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.
Also in attendance will be Principal Connors and Asst Principal Abati to cover general business – update on school activities, issues, requests.
The Board will cover membership, funds and upcoming requests for funding, future topics for PTO – what do parents want to learn about?
Please try to attend one of Dr. Conti’s sessions the week of October 2nd to learn more about the proposed new start time for HS starting in 2018 if approved.  These sessions are intended to educate and answer parent questions.
If anyone has any interest in joining the board we’d love to discuss that with you – we could use someone who’s minimally tech savvy to update the MSMS PTO Blog!
Please remember to send your PTO dues money in.  $25 per family.  You can pay easily with PayPal on the MSMS blog  or send via check in with your child during school.   As always, 100% of the dues go towards student activities for every grade as well as supplies to supplement their learning that are not covered under the standard school budget.
