The Apex team will also be joining us for the Directors’ Dialogue on November 2 to answer any questions you may have!

We are excited to offer again this year, the Welcome Social for our parents to have a night out to have real conversations, meet new friends and kick off the year connected with other families here at MATES.  Our connected community is important at MATES and one of the aspects of our school that we have nurtured and encouraged.  Please join us on September 21st!!  The event is a community builder and free to our MATES parents, but nominal donations to offset the costs are welcome at the door.

Bette Alkazian This Thursday!

Come to our last parent empowerment night of the year.  We brought back Bette Alkazian for another evening of great parenting advice.  She will be sharing “coping skills to ensure our kids become great adults”.  This is a free event with free child care provided.  Plan to come and hear a fantastic lesson and have a good Q & A at the end.  We had a record turnout last year when she came, and we hope you can make it this week.
