Principal's Message

Have a Great Summer!
Posted on 05/25/2018

Hello Bobcat Families,

This year has been an awesome one! It is hard to believe that it has come to an end. We have so many amazing students at MBMS. Some have discovered themselves this year, some have become leaders, some have excelled at helping others, and some of our students are still finding their unique place in the world. All of our students have made progress in some way this school year, and that is what it is all about.

We will miss our 8th grade Bobcats next year, but know that they will continue to move forward in order to accomplish the great things that life has in store for them. We look forward to hearing about where the journey leads them!

Reminder: On April 1, our district email address changed to...
