Welcome

  • Hello again MBFS,

    We are shaken by the abhorrent acts recently in Parkland, Florida. As the high school students and staff return to their school, their struggle is our struggle. It really does hit close to home. We all have so many questions: Are these acts preventable?  Are they reactions?  Are they microcosms of our own society in general, (as these acts are also taking places)?  Whatever the reason for these acts, we must continue to not only stress empathy, understanding of opinion and kindness to others, but as a school, or community in general be prepared the best way we can. This task is multi-layered, as we live in an open society and we don’t want our freedoms to be compromised.

    At school we are all vigilant about students and staff. Our teachers, and student services staff are trained to handle crisis responses.  In fact our school community holds drills to prepare for emergencies all of the time.  We will continue to do so. When any student or staff member needs additional support we can provide community referrals too.  We will continue to take care of each other, and our students. 
    I am asking for your continued help too.  I am humbled by the emails, telephone calls, and general conversations I have been part of.  I know that you want to help.  Lots of folks are suggesting the need for “enhanced security measures” like detectors at the entrance of every school, or police officers, retired veterans and other “enhanced security measures.” These are some of the most recent ideas.

    Let’s wrap your arms around our school.  If we arm our schools with people like you, you can help our children build a country where these acts of violence become nothing more than a dim and distant memory…not a seemingly everyday tragedy.
    How can you help?  Mentor a student, or work in a classroom. Contact our community involvement liaison Stacie Allen at 727.547.7697 to learn about that.  Or volunteer here at school. We have opened up a number of jobs, and locations where we can use your extra eyes throughout the day.  We could use your help in the mornings and afternoon with covering some of the gates on campus and help with the parking lot.   If you are willing to help out for two mornings or afternoons a month, or longer if you can, you will receive membership credit for the month of March.  You would need to be at school for about a half an hour each shift.  You do not need to be a Level II volunteer but you must be a registered volunteer that has reactivated their focus account for this school year.  If you need help with this please contact our Family & Community Liaison, Stacie Allen.
    Please look at what is available and sign up if you are able.  You would need to sign in at the middle side front office when you arrive in order to receive your March Membership credit. Click the link below.

    And finally, if your child uses social media, please use this as an opportunity to remind your child of appropriate social media use. Please monitor the information they are sharing with their peers. Social media tends to feed rumors.  However please remember to “Say something, if you see something.”

    Sincerely,

    Mr. Chris Ateek,
    Principal
