Mahwah Public Schools is launching the Mahwah Schools Parent Academy (MSPA) for the 2018-2019 school year. Topics range from curricular workshops, providing parents with an understanding of the academic programs in our schools to student wellness and safety workshops focusing on mental health awareness, online safety and cyber-bullying, vaping and Mindfulness.
