- About MMS
Mount Madonna School's (MMS) boys volleyball program has four pillars: middle school red and black, and high school junior varsity (JV) and varsity. While the varsity team recently completed a championship season, the JV, Black and Red teams also enjoyed strong play over these past months!
Artworks by three Mount Madonna School (MMS) seventh grade students – Ruby Bracher, Sienna Clifton and Sydney Ota – were selected for inclusion in “An Artistic Discovery,” the 2013 Congressional Competition held earlier this week in Watsonville, and organized by District 20 Congressman Sam Farr (D-Carmel).
“It’s a source of pride to have our students’ work on display in this art discovery competition,” commented MMS middle school art teacher and local Santa Cruz artist Sandy Shaw. “MMS has talented students with amazing passion for creating art. I want to support them in having their work out there publicly and getting them the recognition and praise that is so well deserved.”
Before she was teaching middle and high school science at Mount Madonna School, Lisa Catterall worked in cancer treatment research. The company folded in the 1990s after the treatment it focused on stopped working for patients. A few weeks ago, Catterall had an epiphany while watching a student experiment with iron filings in the chemistry lab and realized why the treatment stopped working.
