New Family Experience

Are you a new family to Messmore?

Get ready for an exciting experience. If you are new to Messmore, you and your child may have plenty of questions. The good news is that we have all been in your position before and are ready to help.

During orientation and throughout the first week of school, the MMA officers will wear an orange button around school. If you have questions, please feel free to stop one of us and ask. If we don’t know the answer, we can probably point you in the right direction.

Also, we have prepared a page for new families that will hopefully be helpful.
