Dear MPA Families,

2020 will be a year full of new surprises and new adventures for MPA.  At the moment, we are in the middle of being re-chartered as a Jeffco Public School of Choice which gives us another 5 years of service and Montessori education to families. More information to come; stay tuned!


Plus, on Monday we had the surprise of the new Gaga Ball pit.  The project was developed, planned and implemented by Alex Berland and his Eagle Scout Troop with the help of Mr. Daniel, our MPA Facility Manager.  Alex is a high school student and MPA alumni who wanted to give back to his former school. Wow! Did he give back in a fun way! Mr. Daniel and I worked with Alex for about six months to make this project a reality.  On Saturday, the Gaga Ball pit was installed with a fleet of parent support and Cub Scouts chipping in. The spirit of Grace and Courtesy is alive and well at MPA. Thank you, Alex, for all your determination, professional manner and kindness. (The young man in the red shirt is Alex) Your gift to MPA will be well used and maintained for many years to come.

Another monumental process at MPA is the future expansion of the campus with the use of the Jeffco Schools 5B funds approved by voters in 2018.  This is an opportunity to enhance the Montessori learning experience inside the building and outside the building. A project of this scale and scope will energize the MPA community for the current, as well as, the next generation of students that will call MPA their home school.  Attached to this newsletter is an update from the MPA Board of Directors about the construction project and the details moving forward. Personally, I want to thank the MPA Board and staff for all their input and guidance as we move forward in this adventure. Click here to view the construction project and details.


Peace and Progress,


-Mr. Brian

Dear MPA Families,


Happy New Year!  2020 will be full of surprises, celebration and challenges.  One surprise we wanted to share with you was the completion of the new primary playground structure which took place over the Winter Break.  Of course the primary students noticed immediately the new playground structure and the joy of exploring this new space was precious to watch. Along with a new playground space the MPA staff have completed additional training this Winter to improve our playground supervision and safety.  With 25 years of playground duty experience, I still learned many valuable strategies to provide a safer playground for students. After the training each person gets a certificate of completion, but more importantly we now have better ways as a staff to provide a safer school.  


I want to thank Mr. Daniel and Ms. Grace, MPA’s maintenance team, and Ms. Amy, MPA’s Business Manager, who worked many, many extra hours to make this magic happen.  Also, I want to thank the MPA Board of Directors for their support during this process. The unveiling of the new playground structure was a perfect way to start the new year! 

Peace and Progress in 2020,

Mr. Brian
