MMSD Families Share Their Strengths
This year, a major focus across our district is partnership with parents. We know that we cannot be successful without you. We know that every parent has dreams for their children. We know that every parent has the capacity to support them. On September 20, we rolled out the red carpet for Sandburg Elementary School families attending Welcome Back Night and asked them to reflect on their strengths as families. Our traveling photo and audio booth will be visiting several other schools in the next few weeks. View the schedule here.
