Our 7th grade students in Mr. Matsunaga's class had the opportunity to learn CPR. Mr. Matsunaga had a guest speaker and presenter from Beverly Hospital teach his students the basics of CPR. This was a great opportunity to learn the basics of CPR and have a hands-on experience. Our students are now better prepared for a life-threatening situation. We are very grateful to Beverly Hospital for allowing our students to have this excellent opportunity.
Fifty of our male students from sixth through eighth grade had the opportunity to participate in the Adelante Young Men's Conference. Students throughout Montebello Unified School District were chosen to participate in this conference which offered various presentations from successful men in the community. They also had a resource fair with colleges, universities, and community organizations that shared valuable information. The young men had a day filled with inspirational speeches and workshops to encourage them to go on to college/university and be successful in life.
