Monterey Bay’s Small Groups Inspire Student Participation

At Monterey Bay Academy (MBA), students are meeting up several times a month to participate in groups geared towards discussion and random acts of kindness. Garrett Gieger, a leader of the discussion group and a sophomore at MBA, prepares topics about God, life, and faith for students to reflect on. In the random acts of kindness group, Jessica Garcia, a senior at MBA, plans ways for the group to make someone’s day better. When asked about her mission as a group leader she says, “My goal is to make at least one person’s day and to encourage people so that they will want to spread joy to others too.”

 

 

 

Students meet at one of the several small groups started at Monterey Bay Academy by Pastor Katie Palumbo, chaplain and religion teacher at MBA. “We have a lot of students, and I wanted them to have more choice in how they worship as well as provide students with more leadership opportunities,” Palumbo said. MBA believes that having a variety of sabbath school options not only engages students but also enriches their spiritual lives.

Southeastern Calif. Education Superintendents Take Field Trips

Twice a year, the Southeastern Calif. Conference Office of Education superintendents take a field trip to visit schools as a group. The field trip allows superintendents to experience all the SECC schools, including their early childhood education centers. Superintendents spend time in classrooms to observe teaching and have the joy of seeing students engaged in vibrant learning environments.
“As an Office of Education, we are anxious that each school community know just how they are valued,” said Don Dudley, SECC superintendent of schools. “The field trips provide one small way for that appreciation to be expressed.”
