Open House/Beginners' Day

Welcome to Myers Park Traditional Elementary School, one of Charlotte's oldest
public schools with a distinguished 90+ year tradition. The Traditional/Leadership magnet experience for grades K-5 at MPTS successfully blends both tradition and new innovation to prepare students and our future leaders for tomorrow. You will find information below that we hope will help guide you through the process of participating in our Prospective Parent Open House event(s) and applying for a lottery seat via the CMS School Choice lottery.

Beginners' Day 2022

Rising Kindergarten Families - mark your calendars for Kindergarten Beginners’ Day, May 5th and 6th!  This year, we will host the event, in person, on two separate dates, and you will be assigned to one, based on your student's last name as follows:

· Student's last name begins with A - K:  Thursday, May 5th

· Student's last name begins with L - Z:  Friday, May 6th

Both events will begin at 9:45am and will end at 11:00am. Throughout the morning you'll have an opportunity to meet the MPTS team, learn more about our school, and receive important details about the 2022-2023 school year.  In addition, your rising Kindergartener will have an opportunity to participate in a special teacher-led experience!  We look forward to seeing you soon!
