WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! -  Our programs are bursting at the seams! Do you want to climb at Petra Cliffs with us, or kayak and canoe? Contact Drew (drewm@mpsvt.org) to volunteer!


This year we're adding over 90 students to the hallways at MSMS with the addition of 5th grade to our ranks.        That's a lot of bodies and interests. Our programming will need some help from families and parents this year.      Please email drewm@mpsvt.org if you are interested in signing up to lead an activity.
