MMS engages all the students (except preschool/kindergarten students) in discussions and training about lockdown drills, which have been very well-performed. We have taken particular care with our elementary students to help them understand that the drills we practice are being put in place to keep them safe. Our interactions with the students are primarily around procedures, simple explanations about the difference between our three different emergency drills (Fire, Earthquake and Lockdown), and the introduction of our security team.

The large metallic mixing bowl on the table gleams, reflecting the arms and faces of the children around it. These children are third graders at Mount Madonna School, and with their hands covered in flour, they laugh and talk while mixing together dough for apple scones. The scones will later be baked and enjoyed by the students as part of their holiday celebration. Once the dough is finished and hands are washed clean, the children move on to making dolls.
Mount Madonna preschool student Kinsey Don Carlos was recently featured in “Companion,” the Santa Cruz SPCA’s winter 2011 newsletter, for her efforts to help local shelter animals.
