A Message From Your PTSA President

Dear Panther family,

Next week we begin the 2022-23 School Year and I hope that everyone is well rested, excited and not feeling too overwhelmed by the beginning of a new school year. I also hope that everyone found some joy during Summer Break and that our students (and parents) are ready to get back to our A rated school.

Although our students are in high school, please know that they need us to remain involved and invested in their education, community and health. Also, please remember to always choose kindness and that we set the tone for how our students feel about school- our words, actions and behaviors will influence how our students learn, adapt, change, serve, love, grow and succeed. 


Wishing you a successful school year,


Elyssa Lewis 

MPSH PTSA President

FREE Tutoring through Miami-Dade Public Library System


The Miami-Dade Public Library System has two programs to help students academically, and best of all they are FREE. live, and interactive:



“Help your child have a successful school year with the Miami‑Dade Public Library System’s Homework Help & Tutoring Program. Free, 30‑minute one‑on‑one virtual tutoring sessions with certified teachers are available on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. ‑ 1:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. to all K‑12 students who reside in Miami‑Dade County. Tutoring is available in reading and math. To participate, please submit a tutoring appointment request for your child/ren each week. To maximize learning, a computer or laptop with Internet access and a working camera and microphone is required.”

Very soon, MDPL will be rolling out a program in which we circulate laptops to take home that will include internet access. It’s a CAREs Act grant. 


2- is normally a paid service through The Princeton Review, but is free for students with a library card (easy to get- see below). 

“Experts help you with homework, study for tests and write essays from noon to midnight daily.” The student can have typing or voice chat. They can request a specific tutor that they have worked with before or take a random tutor. The entire interaction is recorded and the student can put the transcript into a personal virtual locker. They can email it to their teacher or refer to it in the future. 

Have Something You Want to Share?

If there is something you would like to share in the MPSH weekly e-blast or on our social media pages, please email by the end of the school day every Friday.


PLEASE FORWARD this email to any new parents who may not be receiving it yet.
