Teacher’s ‘Wishes’ Published in Local Magazine

Wishes for My Students, a poem by MMS Preschool-Kindergarten Director Sarojani Rohan, was published in the August 2012 edition of Growing Up in Santa Cruz. Sarojani wishes to share her poem with our MMS community.

joy in the journey
peace in the innermost place of their being
health to do and enjoy all that calls to them
fun
compassion for themselves and all beings
clarity to see what is false and what is True
honesty as a code to live by
integrity to do what they know is right
some quiet every day so they can hear their own song
wisdom to honor their gifts and talents
gratitude for all they’ve been blessed with
guidance to follow what has heart and meaning for them
cheerfulness to do whatever they need to do even when they don’t want to do it
friendships that are deep and true
love that surrounds and enfolds them wherever they are
inspiration that lights their path
a sense of purpose and fulfillment to their days
a steadfast heart,
enough magic and wonder
to satisfy their stargazer’s hunger for Mystery,
a willingness to be dazzled by everyday miracles,
and love for It All.

Automated Messaging System

Emergency Power Announce Test:

Wed, Nov 18, the school will be testing our Power Announce system. Expect to receive a test message at your email, phone and text (if you have designated texting). There is no need to respond to the message or alert liaisons.

This is our procedure for letting everyone know when School Closure happens or emergencies. We call school for the following reasons:

  • Roads are closed
  • No electricity at MMS Lower Campus
  • Emergency services have designated hazardous road conditions and it is deemed dangerous for students and buses to drive to MMS
