• The Sound Wave Choir Concert will be on Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 3 p.m. in the Little Theater at Pacific Beach Middle School. Great music, light refreshments.
• On Thursday, Feb. 10, FOX 5 TV News will be visiting Mission Bay High School (MBHS) and showcasing the Cyberbridge Program, the collaboration with the University of California, San Diego expanding media and cyber-infrastructure (CI) in the classroom. The goals of the Cyberbridge Program are to improve science instruction and student experience with IT technologies within an interdisciplinary construct; to increase teacher and student understanding concerning the relevance of science and role(s) of technology in future careers; and to strengthen the relationships between K-12 schools/students and the science community.
• The Mission Bay High School Alumni Association has announced its new 2011 Campus Clean Up Grant Sponsorship. The program was designed to reward current MBHS-sanctioned student clubs and teams up to $250 per event for organizing campus clean ups at MBHS. The goal of this program is to inspire a heightened sense of school pride by motivating the student’s direct involvement with cleaning and beautifying the MBHS campus. This involvement and leadership creates respect and lasting sense of “Buc Pride,” which is a component of the the MBHS Alumni Association’s mission statement. The financial component of this grant program also serves to strengthen and build the excellence of the MBHS clubs and teams.
Interested student groups must have an adult supervisor and submit a grant request form to Principal Fred Hilgers, who designates an area of the school to focus on, and the anticipated results. Once the clean up is completed, results will be evaluated by either Principal Hilgers or a MBHS Alumni Association board member. If the proposed scope of the work is completed as specified, a maximum of $250 will be awarded to the group.
The Campus Clean Up Grant Sponsorship program was just announced on campus in late December and has already been met with great enthusiasm. In a few weeks, the school had three approved grants and clean up events scheduled for January with the 11th grade class, the 3PointPlay Club and the girls field hockey team. Funding is limited, however, for future clean up grants and donation to the MBHS Alumni Association to perpetuate the new grant request program is greatly appreciated. If you would like to sponsor a entire grant ($250), the association will recognize you or your business with the student group sponsored, on the website, e-mails and in the MBHS Beachcomber. Designate your checks with “Campus Clean Up Grant.” All donations are 100 percent tax deductible.
