- About MMS
On Friday, November 29, a small group of MMS students and alumni gathered at the home of friend and teacher Melissa Sanders-Self, for an impromptu “work party” to help out as Sanders-Self recovers from cancer surgery. Melissa sent the following ‘thank you’ to share publicly in recognition of her great appreciation for the generous spirit of those who came to help.

Interview with Prabha Pacey (’96) by Lara Kilpatrick (’85) for The Connection Summer/Fall 2012.
Recently, I had a great conversation with my dear friend and MMS alumna, Prabha Pacey (’86), over a delicious meal at her home in Soquel. Prabha is known to MMS alumni and families for her presence on the Washington, D.C. trips, and for her wonderful voice at senior graduation and the Prabha & Friends alumni concerts benefiting MMS (2009, 2011).
