Manhattan Beach Unified School District
The vision of the Manhattan Beach Unified School District is to prepare our students to become good citizens, parents, workers and leaders in the complex, rapidly changing world they will inherit. They will develop strong self-discipline, inter-personal skills, personal values, social and civic responsibilities and respect for nature and for others. They will be able to move beyond us, each prepared to earn a living, cultivate a dream and make a difference.
City of Manhattan Beach
Welcome to Manhattan Beach – a city of lovely homes on tree-lined streets, year-round sunshine and beautiful beaches; a city of fine schools and places of worship; a surfer’s paradise; and a city filled with friendly people who are proud of our town, our pier, and our heritage.
Ignited is a marketing innovations agency. What does that mean to you? We don’t really know yet. That’s the thing about innovation. It’s unknown. Unprecedented. And it tends to make people a little uncomfortable. But there’s no such thing as playing it safe anymore. You could even argue that safe is the new risky. These days, you have to be agile. Responsive. Willing to experiment, evaluate, optimize and reinvent. Which is why we tend to laugh at what worked last year, welcome what’s ahead, and worship the clients with the courage to say Yes.
