6th Grade

We look forward to welcoming the incoming 6th grade class to MBMS in the Fall! Planning is already underway for the new school year. Carefully read the following information to help your child prepare for a strong start at MBMS: 

  • 6th Grade Orientation & Textbook/Chromebook Checkout
    • See the schedule below and save the date! The orientation program will include team-building and leadership activities. This will be an opportunity for students to get to know their classmates and become familiar with the campus before school starts. Many thanks to the MBMS PTA for generously funding this event. And on that note, don’t forget to JOIN!
    • Last names A–K attend on Thursday, August 18 at 8:00am–1:00pm
    • Last names L–Z attend on Friday, August 19 at 8:00am–1:00pm
  • Bell Schedule
    • MBMS has 7 periods a day. 
    • The first day of school is Wednesday, August 24 (no late start or zero period on this day).
    • School hours on the first day are 8:10am–3:00pm.
  • MBMS is a 1:1 Chromebook School
    • Students are required to use an MBUSD managed Chromebook while at school. Families may purchase a Chromebook for their child and have it configured to MBUSD settings or borrow a district-owned Chromebook. The MBMS Tech Office will be open on orientation day to configure personal Chromebooks and check out district devices.
  • Summer Reading Lists:
  • Math Summer Bridge Activities:
    • Students are strongly encouraged to keep up their math practice over the summer.
    • Summer bridge activities can be found on the Math page in the Academics section of this website.
    • Do not get discouraged when looking at the document. Many of the links listed only have a couple of questions to work on.


Please be on the lookout for additional information as the first day of school approaches. In the meantime, enjoy a safe and restful summer!
