We did it! MCS is so happy to have another year of wonderfully talented students crossing the bridge into high school. These kids worked so hard this year, and we are so incredibly proud of all the impressive work they've done both inside the classroom, and in their community.
This year, students spent 3 months working on projects for the Ocean Ambassadors program, a marine life institution run through the Marine Mammal Center. Through this program, students designed their own instructional projects to inform the public about the needs of our oceans and its wildlife. After months of work, our kids brought their projects to the Ocean Ambassadors fair, where they shared their passions with other parents and educators. Students even presented some of these projects to a representative from the Marine Mammal Center, with the hopes that their lesson plans could be used in other classrooms to teach about our marine world!
Shakespearian English isn't easy for anyone, and this year, our students got to experience Hamlet both on the page, and on the stage! Over the course of our Spring semester, students not only studied the play and it's characters, but also designed their own costumes and set pieces for their performance as well. Students spent months learning their lines, investigating their character and motives, and learning their stage directions. It was so amazing to see the hard work the kids put into their roles this year. Bravo to you guys!
Along with our learning minds, we also focus on our learning bodies. To symbolize their growth, and the many barriers each student has broken through in their education, MCS students broke boards with Master Pope from FireHorse Taekwando. So Amazing!
We are so proud of all our graduates, and hope you guys continue to do incredible work. You are all so talented, and we can't wait to see what you come up with in high school. Congratulations, and have a wonderful summer!!
