Writing skills are essential for success in school as well as life. To help students excel in both, we offer the MBMS Writing Initiative. We also keep English classes small so every child receives necessary attention and feedback. Your support makes all this possible. Help us continue this work by giving today. Thank you.  Mbef.org/givetoday.
