Bussing Update

East Baton Rouge Parish shared a plan with proposed changes to school start times with the media this evening.  At this time, MBS has not received any official notification from the Catholic Schools Office about the proposed plan.  Once official information is received and we have a plan in place, it will be communicated with MBS families.

2023 Summer IXL Requirements

All 2022-2023 MBS students returning for the 2023-2024 school year should complete the assigned IXL skills. The Summer IXL program runs from June 1-August 13.
  • Students should complete the skills to a score of 80.
  • Students should spend 5 hours over the course of the summer. This averages to 30 minutes per week.
  • These are the skills students learned in the 2022-2023 school year and will prepare them for the 2023-2024 school year.
  • Students will receive an assessment grade in the first nine weeks for their Summer IXL participation. 
  • Students should spend 5 hours working on the IXL skills to a score of 80 OR complete all of the IXLs on the list to a score of 80 - whichever happens first. If all of the skills listed are completed in less than 5 hours, students do not need to search for more skills to complete.
  • Students who do not complete Summer IXL will receive a zero.
Students new to MBS for the 2023-2024 school year will be exempt from this assignment. We will get new students' IXL accounts as soon as possible.

School Fundraisers - Giving Through Everyday Living

"Giving Through Everyday Living" Ziplock Bags were sent home with each child.  Please refer to the attached flyer for MBS approved collectibles.  Place the collectibles in the bags as you collect them.  We will announce a date for you to send the bags back to school.  The class with the most collectibles will win a class party.  MBS receives "free" money for your participation.  For instance, we receive 10 cents for each Community Coffee label we send in and 20% of each Mabels Lables sales.  As of today, 12/3/2021, MBS has also earned  $2,048.56 from Amazon Smile.
