On Wednesday, September 14th, we invite you to participate in Back-to-School Night from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Parents will have a chance to meet teachers and get information about the particular curricular program. This is not a conference night to discuss individual student achievement. The purpose of the night is to understand the expectations of each program so that you can help your MWS student meet those expectations successfully. Complimentary childcare for MWS students will be available.
We ask families each year to pay PTO dues in the amount of $20 per family (not per child). The annual dues fee benefits the school and helps to support the various activities planned for the upcoming year. Dues can be paid online at www.mountwashingtonschool.org. In addition, dues can be paid using cash, check or credit at Sneak-A-Peak and Back-To-School Night. A dues envelope will be provided. Thank you for supporting the school and its students!!
