    Greetings Parents, Families and Friends:


    Welcome to Marion P. Thomas Charter School – STEAM Academy! I am energized and committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our scholars. I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning and growth in what we affectionately refer to as The Village.


    For the 2018-2019 school year, we have set the highest expectations for all members of the learning community. By establishing high standards for teacher performance, increasing academic rigor for all students and engaging the learning community and the community-at-large in our mission, each scholar will receive a quality education and be prepared to successfully navigate his/her journey toward college and career readiness.


    I am proud to say that the administration has been working diligently over the course of the past several months to assemble a staff that is dedicated, enthusiastic, and excited about teaching (and learning). These professionals will work diligently and purposefully with our scholars to raise the bar for academic excellence.


    We embrace the challenges that await us, while continuing to celebrate and cherish the village-wide traditions and successes of the past. We look forward to a continued partnership with all stakeholders to make MPTCS a unique place where one can learn, develop, and fulfill their individual potential and promise.


    Certainly, we encourage you to be active participants in the learning community during these critical early years of your scholar’s education. Our doors are open – whether it be involvement in the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), school-wide events, or volunteering on occasion, and when time permits, we welcome the support of each and all!


    I look forward to a wonderful and productive year in the village!
