What Others Have to Say About Ryan....
"Ryan DeVitto is a fine young man. Ever since he was in my sixth grade science class two years ago I’ve watched him grow in knowledge, character and faith. He is self-assured, self-reliant, but more importantly selfless. He always has a smile and kind greeting for me no matter where I see him. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know him better through Fellowship of Christian Athletes/Youth Commission International club, of which he has faithfully attended and is now one of my group leaders. His kind and caring disposition, intelligence, positive attitude and Christian faith are attributes Ryan possesses that have molded him into a well-rounded student and pleasure to teach."
"Ryan has a great sense of humor and an earnestness to assist his peers or teachers. Over the course of the year he has improved his work ethic and success has been the result. He contributes to the school through sports, basketball and baseball, and helping both the office and the library. His smile brightens the classroom and his wit lightens the day. He has accepted the challenge of three accelerated classes in 8th grade and made A Honor roll."

Tonya is always willing to help, even if it’s not in her job description. When you ask for her help, she is right there no questions asked. Her creativity and love of making things look cheerful is an added bonus for our school! We are so blessed to have Tonya as a part of the MPMS family. She loves and takes care of our school, our students, and our staff! Tonya has a wonderful way of making everyone around her feel as special as she is!"
