LOWER SCHOOL

Welcome to Lower School at Moorestown Friends School! We are very excited to have your family joining us for the 2018-19 school year.

In mid-July, you will receive your login information for myMFS, our parent portal that offers access to important school information.  An important reminder — much of the information in myMFS at that point will pertain to the 2017-2018 academic year and will be updated over the summer with information accurate for the 2018-2019 academic year.

In early August, you will receive an email notification from the Lower School office that will detail your child’s class assignment and will provide access to all important back-to-school forms and information you’ll need to get you ready for the great school year ahead.

Later in August, your child’s teacher will contact you with classroom specific information including how to prepare for the first day of school. We generally do not ask students to purchase supplies for school, however your child’s classroom teacher will let you know if there’s a special item or two that will be needed.

Lower School students have no official summer assignments. However, you can visit the MFS library webpage for some summer reading suggestions.

Welcome aboard!
