Greetings MLWS Families…

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! We hope things are off to a smooth start in your household. This year, Parent Council will once again publish this newsletter, which will include a Parent Council update, highlight activities of our classes and other school-related topics, offer Classified listings, and provide information about upcoming events in the MLWS community.

Parent Council Update

Parent Council will be holding monthly meetings via Zoom during the 2020-21 school year. We will also hold smaller working group meetings via Zoom to work on our priority projects, which will be scheduled as necessary to advance these efforts. These projects include a monthly Brown Bag Lunch Series (via Zoom) featuring MLWS community speakers , Grounds Beautification Projects, Food Drives, a Welcome Committee for New Families, “Art or the Elderly” Community Outreach, and this newsletter.

If you are interested in being involved in one of the working groups for a priority project, or if you have an idea for another initiative you would like to work on, please send an email to us at Please consider getting involved and offering some of your time to one of our projects. Many hands make light work!

A Peek Into The Classroom

In past years, the newsletter has often featured highlights from two classes in each issue, offering a glimpse into what the classes are working on. Because parents aren’t able to be in the school building this year, we are starting off the year sharing an image of every classroom in the school, to offer parents a sense of what the inside of the school building looks like this year!
