Students throughout MBS are learning to be active citizens in their community. When MBS students submit a plan, teachers, parents, and administrators support them in learning how to develop and execute it. Over the years, they have raised money to support juvenile diabetes, cancer research, rainforests, disaster victims, and local animal agencies; spearheaded recycling efforts; and much more.
