Attention MLK Humanities Program Parents

We know it can be hard for your children to participate in after school activities when they live outside of the MLK boundary area and have no access to activity buses. We’d like to help. If you would like to be connected with parents of other Humanities students, please send an email to mlkptsaconnect@gmail.com.  Let us know your name and your child’s name and grade; we will contact you with information about how to get connected with other Humanities parents.  You do not have to be a member of the PTSA to take advantage of this connection opportunity.
