MBEF Donation Update

GV AT 65% OF ITS PARTICIPATION GOAL Thank you to those families who have donated! Donations to MBEF are why our children enjoy reasonable class sizes, hands-on science, music programs, counselors, and so much more in our Manhattan Beach schools. Without parent donations, our schools would be very different places indeed. Classes that reach 75-94% participation will receive $200 in classroom supplies and those that reach 95% and above will receive $250 in supplies to use this year. If you haven't already, please consider making a donation at Thank you!
