Headed to the Super Bowl!

Give a shout out to MTS 3rd grader, Lucas Frolich, who is headed with his teammates to the Pop Warner Super Bowl the first week of December!

The games will be held at the ESPN Wild World of Sports Complex located at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. In order to qualify for the Super Bowl, the team had to win its respective League Championship as well as the Regional Championship. Lucas plays tackle on both offense and defense for the Southern Marin Broncos, a Pop Warner Mitey-Mite Team (ages 7–9). After the games, Lucas and his teammates are treated to an exclusive private party at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and will be able to play in the park all night.

Pop Warner is the nation’s oldest youth football organization with more than 70 percent of today’s NFL players having participated in the Pop Warner program.

If you see Lucas around campus, wish him good luck and remind him, “hustle, hit, never quit”!


BizWorld Girlpreneur Competition at Fort Mason!

On October, 15th BizWorld hosted their own version of Shark Tank for girl entrepreneurs. Girls with a good idea and/or a budding business came together to pitch their ideas before a panel of successful entrepreneurs, including Shark Tank investor Mark Cuban.

Mount Tamalpais School’s, June Bernstein (8th grade), along with her sisters, Ginger and Holly, wowed the judges with an impressive presentation highlighting their company “MySelf”. The girls realized there was a need for younger kids to remember to do their chores and  invented a shelf and a bracelet, helping to remind kids to brush their teeth, feed their pet, do their homework, and complete important tasks. The girls also created some kid (and environmentally) friendly products that make tasks a bit more fun for kids. Included in their product line is a natural toothpaste kit that allows kids to create their own flavors, a small hand cleansing kit which doesn’t use harsh antibacterials, and a natural sunscreen. The judges were impressed that the girls had performed door to door market research to determine what type of items were needed and had already sold $200 worth of product!

Congratulations to the Bernstein Girls, for a job well done!
