“I am very proud of everyone who came and gave their time to get our school ready for our staff and students,” said MMS Principal Steve Rodriguez.  “It was a way for us to partner with all our school stakeholders and take pride in the way our school looks.”

MMS staff members, teachers, administrators, parents and students helped perform a wide range school beautification tasks such as: pruning trees and shrubs, power washing sidewalks, cleaning outdoor benches and tables, sweeping rocks and dirt, cutting and pulling weeds and raking gravel.
