Association of Marlboro Parents

AMP Meeting Notes December

We pulled off a very socially distant Wreath + Winter wellness Sale this season. I want to say thank you to Ana Bario + family, Erika Korb + family, Jaime Tanner, and Than Hobbie for helping decorate lovely holiday wreaths for our generous supporters this year! And a big thank you to Emma Lee for putting together a collection of winter wellness herbs and vitamins for purchase with all proceeds going towards our association to support the school.

Many folks in the Marlboro community were happy to get a wreath this year, and all look forward to future winter bazaars when we can all be together in person!

Our group discussed a few ideas for fund raising in the coming year. Not knowing when it will be safe for our community to come together for an event, making these plans will be challenging. More to come, and please do not hesitate to reach out regarding this or ideas you have for AMP in the coming year.

We discussed how AMP can support the teachers with any programs they are interested in bringing to their classrooms via zoom. Maybe a writer, artist, or social activist that would be easier to bring during this time. Teachers, please reach out to me or any parent, to discuss this. We want to help in any way we can. If you need assistance planning a special program for MLK this year, also be in touch.

We all agreed that paying attention to the wellness of teachers and staff throughout the year is very important to parents. We all feel very lucky to have our children in school, all agreed that school is the highlight of their childs week and we could not be more thankful!

Finally, Wayne very graciously answered questions regarding school budget and discussions taken place at school board meetings. Thank you Wayne, and we are happy to have an open forum for parents to voice concerns, questions, and comments regarding these matters. We plan to always make time for this at the end of our meetings.

See you in the new year! Next AMP zoom meeting with be JANUARY 20 (wow, Inauguration Day, how exciting!) at 6:45. Agenda and link will come the Friday before (or day before!)

Happy Holidays and New Year all! Be well and safe! Thank you to our entire school community for being so amazing during this crazy year!
