MENIFEE - Students at Bell Mountain Middle School (BMMS) are showing their support for victims of the Lahaina fire in Maui by creating cards of encouragement. Led by the school administration, Associated Student Body (ASB) leadership, and Where Everyone Belongs (WEB) leadership, BMMS students moved quickly to comfort and support those affected by the tragedy. With such a catastrophic event in Maui, many students asked, “What can we do?” Assistant Principal Libolt had contacted a fellow educator, Ned Hocking, at Maui Waena Intermediate School and talked to him about the impact of the fire on their school. It was clear that, beyond emergency supplies, the students in Maui could use some emotional support as well.BMMS student
