Congratulations MBCS Graduates!

Our eighth grade graduates had a wonderful in person commencement celebration at the Monterey County Fairgrounds last Friday, June 11. Friends and family joined us to celebrate the achievements of these amazing students. We are so proud of our graduates and thankful for the volunteers who helped organize a safe and fun in person event.

We would like to thank all of the amazing family volunteers who helped build outdoor classrooms, bring our school garden to life, worked site beautification days, served on the MBCS School Board, Foundation Board, HR Finance Committee, Parent Circle, Ocean Guardian Team, garden committee and the DEI Taskforce. A BIG thank you to our incredible teachers who continued to provide our students with an amazing education even in a pandemic.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Taskforce

The DEI Taskforce commits itself to support all students and create a school culture where everyone grows together. Sometimes this includes having difficult or challenging conversations with ourselves and each other. In addition to recognizing the work and action that our school engages within the realms of DEI, every week, we will include a conversation topic and/or valuable resources to ignite critical conversations in our everyday interactions at school, home, and our community. Together we will create this Brave Space by planting the seeds of personal growth within ourselves and our children.
