Donations Request

MBMS Community Member,

This year the MBMS would like to continue to make meaningful and lasting connections with the surrounding community members. Our focus this year is on students being “PAWSitive” in the school building are when in the community. Our “PAWS” initiative focuses on four areas:

Prepare to succeed

Accountable for actions

With integrity


Teachers and staff members are on the lookout for students demonstrating these behaviors throughout the school day. When students are seen being successful in those areas they are awarded a ticket to be entered in quarterly drawings. The MBMS staff is asking for any local businesses to provide donations to support these students for making the Margaret Brent community a better place to be. This will enable both students and staff to strength our bonds with all stakeholders in our community. If you are interested please contact Mr. Peeler. 301-884-4635 Extension 37112

The Flu Clinic is Coming To MBMS on October 15!
