Mattawan Later Elementary Association of Parents (MLEAP)

  • To support and enrich the education of our children
  • To provide a channel of communication between the home and the school
  • To foster a sense of community spirit
  • To sponsor fund-raising projects that generate money for enrichment activities, equipment, and academic needs that otherwise might not be available.

We appreciate the parental involvement and support that made these endeavors possible.

For the 2017-2018 school year, we will be holding four meetings.  The first meeting will be September 25th at 9:00 am.  Meetings will be held in the new Later Elementary Conference Room.  Childcare is not provided; however, your younger child is welcome to sit with you.  Additional information about the January, March and May meetings will be coming soon.
