Grandparents and Special Friends Tea

We had a fabulous turnout for the annual Grandparents and Special Friends Tea! A favorite MTS tradition, we welcomed our students’ grandparents, parents, and special friends to campus for a day of classroom visits, performances, and a lunch on the lawn.



To start the morning off, grandparents were invited to join their students in the classroom for fun activities including making sock puppets, figuring out math puzzles, and posing for silly photos.



Following the classroom visits, our families were treated to a special program in Summit Hall including a welcome by Head of School Andrew Davis, chorus songs, dance numbers, and band performances. Student murals on display in the Summit Hall foyer were inspired by Faith Ringgold’s story quilts. Each grade was asked to think about different aspects of the MTS 2019-2020 theme, “A Community That Cares:” Caring for our Families (Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades), How we care for our school (3rd and 5th grades), A community that cares (4th and 6th grades), and Caring for our global community (7th and 8th grades).


After the performances, everyone headed out to enjoy lunch, tea, and cookies out on the lawn. A special thanks to the Grandparents Tea parent volunteer co-chairs, Orlaith Murphy-Dolly and Rachel Aspatore, as well as 2020 Chair Ariel Levin, and all the committee and parent volunteers who helped make this an amazing event!
