Get Involved!

At MMBDA, we recognize that a child's first and most influential teacher is you, the parent or guardian. You can help your child and the school by connecting with teachers and staff to find out what is needed to ensure success and how you can help reach that goal. Studies of successful schools report that parent involvement is a major factor in their outcomes, including closing the achievement gap between various groups of students. Improving the effectiveness of the home as a learning environment is critical to promoting long-term school success.
