Dunes on Monterey Bay Ribbon Cutting

THE GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION at The Dunes on Monterey Bay was a great success, with over 2,000 visitors passing through the doors of 6 gorgeous new model homes in the first week. 16 of these new Sea House and Surf House homes were placed on reserve during the first sales release, and interest in the new communities, which are located on the site of the former Fort Ord, continues to build. Marina Mayor Bruce Delgado cut the ceremonial ribbon that kicked off The Dunes Grand Opening festivities, and visits from the local radio station KWAV 96.9, The Choke Coach, Katie's Coldpress Juice, CHOMP Wellness Center, and a Moto Espresso Coffee Cart added to the fun. In addition, the world record holding Sand Guys from the Travel Channel's show Sand Masters created one of their unique masterpieces live during the event!

HELP OUR STUDENTS COMPETE AT NATIONAL HISTORY DAY!! On May 9th, Los Arboles Middle School and MPUSD had their very first ever win at the California State History Day competition. Held at William Jessup University in Rocklin, CA, the team from LAMS won the Junior Division Group Performance category. They were the only winners from all of Monterey County, including all private and charter schools! As co-champions from California, the 8th graders (Gabriella Gallo-Rodriguez, Tara Smith, and Gabriella Flanders) will be going to the National History Day competition at the University of Maryland (College Park), just outside Washington DC, June 14th – 18th, 2015. As you can imagine, this is a huge honor for the girls, however, it is one of those "good news, bad news" moments: they don't get any funding from the California state affiliate for attending the competition on the East Coast. We have started a Go Fund Me account for donations: Even if you cannot donate, it is a great story of student friendship. Please use the link for all the donation information. If you Facebook, Pinterist, etc., please pin, share, link or like us to help spread the word. Thanks for any financial assistance that you can provide!
