The purpose of the MECE Parent Association is to build a strong community among our pre-School and kindergarten parents; support the teachers and staff; and to raise funds to support the school. All parents of MECE students are members of the Parent Association. The MECE Parent Association plans numerous events and opportunities for parents to get involved and participate in the MECE Parent Association, thereby directly supporting the school and our children.
Welcome Back MECE Families!

I hope all the children are enjoying their first week of school! It was wonderful to see so
many families at the MECE play date! I hope you are excited for all the fun events we will
plan this year! Take a moment to friend us on Facebook at MECE Parents and follow us on

In Search of an Auction Chair!

We need your help! We are currently looking for a talented parent (or 2) to chair our
