The Munsey Pledge
I pledge to make good choices throughout my day, to use kindness in all I do and say. In reading, math, and all the rest, I pledge to do my very best. I will respect others and myself too because that is what Munsey STARS do! I am a Munsey Star! And I rock!
STARS: Remember to be on task, cooperative, and kind!
Munsey first began providing educational services in 1954. It is named after Millie Gardett Munsey, a dedicated educator who taught in several schools in the Bakersfield area from 1895-1945. Munsey Elementary strives to follow her example each day through modern, relevant instruction delivered by knowledgeable, caring teachers and staff.
Munsey serves approximately 660 students in grades TK-5th. Some of our programs that make education at Munsey special include a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program for all 5th-grade students, new technology in all classrooms, a modern computer lab, a science lab, and numerous extended learning activities.
Munsey’s mascot is the Star. Our school colors are red, white and blue.
