Message to Volunteers (March 2016)
April 10-16 is National Volunteer Week and I couldn’t be more excited to be among the first to thank you for the work you do for our young people every week of the school year.
When I visit MPS schools I am always amazed at the dedication of our volunteers. You tutor our students to help them improve their academic outcomes. You mentor and guide them as they learn how to make the right decisions that will set them on a path to success. You let them know you care by listening to their concerns and celebrating their accomplishments. You are amazing!
Many of you tell me you receive so much more from volunteering than you give. Please know that what you give is beyond measure. Your presence in our schools gives our students hope and the knowledge that someone cares about them and their success.
