Festival of Courage Fun!

On Thursday September 22, families were warmly invited to join us for our Festival of Courage, a seasonal Autumn festival dedicated to finding a sense of strength and peace in community and to “tame our dragons.”

Outwardly, “dragons” appear as challenging life circumstances. Inwardly, they arise as difficult emotions and mental states that disrupt our equilibrium and shake our comfort zone. With courage, wisdom, and the support of loving friends, we do not need to fight these dragons, but instead we can learn to work with them skillfully, harness their energy and transform them into opportunities to become better people and do good in the world. This is the theme of our Courage Play. Thank you to everyone who joined us!

Ocean Guardian Day of Action

A big thank you to all of the Ocean Guardian students who showed up to help clean Casa Verde beach in September for our NOAA Ocean Guardian Day of Action. Thank you Ocean Guardian team for organizing an amazing event for our school community!

Monterey Bay Charter School is entering its eighth consecutive year of being a NOAA Ocean Guardian School. We receive federal funding through the National Marine Sanctuary program to promote ocean literacy and stewardship, invite special guests, conduct classroom activities, go on outdoor field trips, promote organic gardening, restore native plants, hold beach clean-ups and reduce waste. As part of this effort we have embarked on a journey to become a zero-waste school, by becoming aware of what we are throwing away, recycling, composting, and avoiding single use plastic.

MBCS has Enrollment Openings for this School Year

Please spread the word. All interested families can apply online at: www.mbayschool.org. Families can also schedule a school tour online!

Thank you for reading our newsletter. We hope you are having a great day!
