Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!
We hope you and your family had a great summer and are enjoying this beautiful weather at the start of the school year.
As a parent/guardian of an MCH student, you are automatically a member of the Parent Association. We are so excited about the things we are planning for this year and hope you are too!
The Parent Association is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to building community at MCH, supporting the staff and enriching the student experience through supplementary programming. In addition to hosting staff appreciation week and sponsoring some teachers to the AMS conference, last year we also sponsored community events like parent workshops, game days, spring swap, robotics week, and an end of year camping trip, among other events.
This year we’re building on our momentum and have even more programs in the works! All of the programs we put on are only made possible through the generous gifts we have received from you to our annual SEED fund. Our fundraising campaign will kick off this fall, which you can read more about below. To find out more about board sponsored events or to learn more about the board members, visit the Parent Association website at: https://www.mch-pa.org/
I'm Jessica Lin, and I’m honored to be serving my second year as President of the Parent Association. I’ve been a parent at the school since 2018 and I currently have one child in the toddler program and another in the early childhood program, who is a kindergartner. As someone who has been at the school pre, during, and post pandemic, I can honestly say that I am more excited about this school year than any previous year, especially now that snacks are back! In all seriousness, we have an amazing board this year full of enthusiasm, ideas, and the desire to build our community! It is my hope that the MCH community is one where you can find connections that bring you joy and friendship, as we go on our collective journey to help our children thrive.
President, MCH Parent Association
Thank you to those that joined us last month for the Family Walk!

The 2023 SEED Fundraiser Campaign Starts Sunday, October 29th!
The SEED campaign entirely funds our operations and activities throughout the year. We have so many great ideas building off of the Parent Survey that this PA Board is eager to make happen. Please be on the lookout for the kickoff of our fundraising campaign the day after HarvestFest, and consider supporting our mission to enrich the MCH community in service to you as parents and our children.
If you have been hesitant to give in years past, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with feedback.
2023 Parent Survey
We Still Want to Hear From You!
We've already heard from a number of parents but we'd love to get input from an even larger group. If you haven't already completed the very brief survey, please take a minute or two and let us know what kind of community programs and events you'd like us to offer. We appreciate your feedback!
