Teacher Appreciation Week is May 2 through May 6. Students and parents from the Pacific Beach-area schools will host breakfasts, make lunches, drop off treats, send “thank you” notes and show teachers how much they are appreciated. The Pacific Beach Middle School and MBHS Parent/Teacher Organization (FOPBSS) will provide breakfast and lunch to teachers on Tuesday and Wednesday. Chipotle restaurant on Garnet Avenue will donate half-price burritos. It is especially important this year to show our teachers how much we value their talent, patience and hard work in the face of looming budget cuts. These educators have an enormous impact on the lives of students and the community honors them this week.
On Monday, May 2 from 8 to 10:30 a.m, Pacific Beach Middle School will host this year’s final school tour beginning in the media center/library. For those who want to learn more about the International Baccalaureate Program at PBMS and all the exciting opportunities for incoming middle-schoolers, join the school tour called "a day in the life" of a PBMS student. Participants will meet administrators, learn about IB, meet teachers and see students in action in class. Students are welcome.
