Celebrating Women’s History Month
March 1st marked the beginning of Women’s History Month; a month where we recognize and celebrate the contributions of women throughout history. Women’s History Month is also a time to reflect on the continued struggle for equality.
Monterey Bay Charter School faculty and administration are dedicated to honoring Women’s History Month with meaningful discussions and assignments for our students. Our eighth grade students are writing biographies of famous women in history. They are also listening to music performed by female artists to open and end each class. Our second grade students are learning about the story of Malala and Florence Nightingale. We can’t wait to share more of our students work with you!
Did you know MBCS has an Amazon Smile account? If you are ordering items via amazon, please consider adding MBCS as your charity of choice. This is a great way to order items and support the school. If you have not already selected MBCS as your charity you will need to do so. It is listed as Monterey Bay Charter School Parent Teacher Group.
Our local Hayward Lumber store in Pacific Grove has continuously supported our school with donations over the years. We are incredibly grateful to Hayward Lumber for generously donating a tremendous amount of lumber for our new outdoor wood shop and blacksmith pergola.
Thank you Hayward Lumber!
School Reopenning Plans
MBCS is thrilled to announce we will be reopening for in person instruction the week of March 22. We have updated our Covid-19 Safety Plan to align with state and county guidelines. We have also contracted with a testing company to be able to administer COVID-19 testing for all students and employees, as an added safety measure. We cannot wait to see our students again!
Monterey Bay Charter School is incredibly thankful for all of the volunteers who have helped us create beautiful outdoor classrooms for our students. We are so grateful for our community!
Thank you to everyone who has donated to our spring fundraiser for outdoor classrooms. We appreciate your generosity and support. We have been able to purchase lumber for benches, shade sails, buckets and clipboards for students and portable chalkboards. Thank you SO much!
