EDUCATION IS NOT A SPRINT, IT’S A MARATHON. Your commitment to Go the Distance for MPFS helps us sustain an environment where students have been able to grow, explore, and learn for 143 years. Your support is important because a child's first experiences at school sets the tone for how they feel about learning for the rest of their lives.

GREAT THINGS TAKE YEARS TO BUILD. The educational experience in a child's formative years is vital. It is when children develop the habits of mind and body that they will carry with them throughout their lives. A pre-school, elementary, and middle school education needs to be more than just learning basic reading, writing, and math. It should also be about going the distance to feed and satisfy every student's curiosity, instilling a life-long love of learning, finding their passion, challenging them to think outside the box, and accomplishing things they didn’t think were possible. 

THERE IS NO IMPACT WITHOUT ACTION. Your gift makes possible an education that provides the vital components of a child's development, all the while preparing them with critical thinking skills they need to thrive in an evolving world, and fostering the Friends values of respect and appreciation for other people and other points of view. Developing the agility to navigate inevitable roadblocks is part of the route to a successful life. These roadblocks won’t last forever but are essential in the process of continuous revelation. In an MPFS classroom and in life truth keeps unfolding if we are open to new information.

PLEASE GO THE DISTANCE FOR MPFS. We expect our students to leave here as capable life-long learners prepared with the skills needed to succeed in whatever field they choose, and with a desire to make a difference in the world. Your commitment, thoughtfulness, and generosity towards our students’ Meaningful Learning for a Purposeful Life will help.
