Friday, May 11th: BUILD End-of-the-semester Event @ Peter B’s, 6pm
This is just a time for all of us (teachers and students) to gather together and celebrate what an awesome semester we have had. Please plan to attend! We will also have some goodies to give out to show our appreciation for all of your dedication and hard work. Also, please INVITE YOUR STUDENTS!

This event will be similar to our language mixer in March. If you weren’t able to attend the last one, please attend this one. Everyone had a great time! Also, there will be appetizers (for free!) and drinks available, at a discounted rate.

 BUILD Personal Statements – Survey

If you have not done so already, please complete our BUILD Impact Survey. We are still gathering positive and negative feedback about the impact of BUILD at MIIS, to MIIS students, and in the larger Monterey community. There are only about 8 questions!


Espero que todos disfruten de esta semana de vacaciones!

We are half way there… I encourage you for continuing BUILD classes even though we all have a million other things going on.
