One last tip for parents of new students … please review the MPA dress code and supply lists (both online at ) before doing your back-to-school shopping.  School uniforms sell out quickly in the mall and discount stores, especially in the kindergarten sizes, so it’s best to start looking early rather than be stuck trying to scrape up polo shirts on August 29th.
