StrongStart


  • We are looking forward to seeing you all again! StrongStart programs will resume on September 28, 2020.

    Starting Thursday, September 17, families will be able to sign-up for a 6-week session, one day per week. There will be a limit of 4 families per group as this will allow StrongStart to resume with learning groups and the ability to serve more families during COVID-19.

    We are asking families to only sign up for one StrongStart program to ensure as many families as possible will be able to participate.

    Please use this link to sign-up for your spot: StrongStart Sign-Up Form

    PLEASE BE ADVISED: Full StrongStart Registration will also need to be completed if you have not already done so. Here is the link to the registration form: MPSD StrongStart Registration Form FILLABLE.pdf
