MMS on Facebook

Thank you to parent Pilar Nava-Parada, who spoke to students last week about Mexico. "Hopefully new generations appreciate all the good things of #Mexico," she said. "Today kids learned that #5demayo isn't the Mexican independence day, that in Mexico there is an immense variety of corn, and that there is beauty and happiness in the #dayofthedead celebration." The MMS community includes families with many different backgrounds, frequently international. We're always thrilled to introduce our students to new countries, cultures, religions, etc. Pilar Nava-Parada ...
