8th Grade Promotion and Celebration Information 

The 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony and Celebration will be held Wednesday, June 10, 2020, starting at 6 p.m. at MBMS. This is a memorable night for our graduates and their families. Throughout the year we will send information and reminders for yearbook ads, baby pictures, promotion practice times, and more.

This donation will also cover the cost of food, entertainment and decorations for the student Celebration immediately following the ceremony. Any additional donation will help make the night even more special and is greatly appreciated!

PBIS - Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies

As you know, we partnered with the trained coaches from Fulcrum and our MBMS staff to provide a unique experience for our 8th graders that highlighted skills such as collaboration, communication, problem solving, citizenship and critical thinking.  The skills learned on this day are valuable and important to a successful year, transition to high school, and life in general!  Examples of challenges were:
  • Designing and building a boat that can race across Begg Pool
  • A station revolving around community and positive impact - focusing on experiential games and challenges focusing on student choices impacting the bigger community and global impact
  • A station with 3 Leadership challenges - requiring students to plan, strategize, lead, create and implement their strategies as a team to complete their mission
We are looking forward to continuing to build on the skills learned Wednesday throughout the year with additional follow up in and out of class.  Students will be surveyed for their feedback as well so that this first-time-ever program can be improved upon for future years.
