Dear MPCS family:
I’m proud to announce the First Annual Mount Pleasant Cottage School Invitational on Saturday, June 9, 2018, beginning at 10:00 a.m. The event is a kickoff for next year when we’ll compete in the Hudson Valley Special Olympics at West Point. At this time, we have approximately sixty participants competing, the majority of which are our alternatively assessed students.
We’re currently creating a track adjacent to the Edenwald School where students will compete in various track and field events. In an Opening Ceremony to start the day, competitors will carry flags representing their teams. We anticipate a commencement address by a local politician and news coverage of the event. Additionally, we’re working on attracting area high school students to act as “buddies” for each of our athletes throughout the competition. At the conclusion of the day, all participants will receive t-shirts and a medal (gold, silver, or bronze).
Our student-athletes need you!
At this time, we’re looking for those interested to volunteer some of their time and talents to support the event. Volunteers strengthen and enrich educational programs and foster greater cooperation among all the partners in our community.
We welcome volunteer involvement in a variety of areas and capacities: short term or long term commitments to practices; organizing for the day of the Invitational; assisting on the day of the event. Volunteers should derive a great sense of fulfillment and satisfaction from their work, and our school life is certainly very much enhanced by the generosity.
If you’re interested in learning more about participating, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Please contact by phone or email:
