Friday Lunch at E-25
A service club that works to integrate the special education student population at M-A into the high school environment and with the rest of the student body. We do this through planning school wide events for the students as well as weekly activities. To end each year, we throw the highly anticipated "Pride Pals Prom."
We establish mentoring relationships with future M-A students to enrich their education now and for the future. Tutoring, mentoring and teaching students about academics as well as service, we hold weekly tutoring at the Boys and Girls Club of the Peninsula and monthly service projects.

Surfriders is a service club partnered with the Surfriders Foundation. Every other Sunday we go to a local beache and pick up trash. Students are welcome to surf and hangout after. @masurfriders
The Surfriders submitted a VR (virtual reality) video about the SDG's (Sustainable Development Goals) in the UN Global Initiatives "MY World 360" competition and won! The 360 video entitled, "Beach Warriors," documents how one community in California is working to address the crisis affecting our oceans and beaches. Read more here.
