The Project Cornerstone group at MMS continues to work daily on its goal of building a community where all adults support and empower youth so that they thrive. There are several programs in place that use these tenets directly and indirectly to help our students succeed.
Please contact Amy Bencomo (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional information.
P.O.C.s (Parents on Campus) Adult volunteers interact positively with students by either by assisting or leading activities in a “game room” or blacktop. Led by a team of volunteers rotating everyday during lunch.
Academic Empowerment This is directed toward students who may need extra support with academics. Students meet once a week with a caring adult for one-on-one assignment help. This gives the opportunity for the student to interact positively with a caring adult and catch up on some homework.
Lunch Clubs Have a unique talent? Passionate about something? Lead a club at MMS!! We have students interested in Coding, Magic, Knitting, Drawing, Juggling, Cards Games, Soccer and more! You provide the skill, and we'll provide the students!
Cornerstone Book Club This is a parent facilitated book club. Volunteers help students develop a love of reading and form stronger bonds with their peers and other caring adults over a common interest .
Random Acts of Kindness Club Students meet monthly during lunch to plan the quarter's random acts of kindness (i.e. nice messages of encouragement, eating lunch with someone new, making a point to be polite, flash-mob).
Cornerstone Club This is a continuation of the Expect Respect Bullying Prevention and Leadership Workshop. All students are welcome to participate!
Take it Personally This is a parent education opportunity (scheduled once a year, usually in the fall).
Parent Ed A powerful six-session workshop to educate and inspire adults to make a stronger commitment to supporting children and teens in all aspects of their lives.
