Dear Parents and Students,
The school year is off to a fast start. Students and staff are working hard at making this school year a great one. I wanted to provide information for current and upcoming events. Please give us a call at the high school office with any questions.
We are halfway through homecoming/spirit week at the high school. Students are showing tremendous school spirit as volleyball has two home games this week and the homecoming football game is Friday October 8th at 7:00pm. We would love to see community members and alumni out to support our teams. Along with the sporting events, the powderpuff football and boys volleyball game will be held Wednesday, October 6th at 6:00pm and the homecoming dance will be after the football game October 8th, from 9:00pm-12:00am.
PSAT Testing/Senior Project Day
Each year the district typically provides PSAT and SAT testing. This year, MHS will not be offering the SAT and will be using this time for senior projects. Grades 9-11, will be taking this assessment on October 13th. The PSAT is a low risk, low pressure test that we use for data to address learning. This can also be used to meet essential skills for graduation. The 13th is an early release day for all students. Please review the schedule below for detailed information:
Grade 12: Oct. 13th – Arrive at 8:00am. Upon completion of Senior Project requirements, students are released to continue work on their projects by finding mentors and resources.
Grades 9-11: Oct. 13th – Students will be with their advisors at 8:00am to prepare for the PSAT test. Students will be released at 12:00pm. Buses will run at 12:10pm. Lunch will be provided for students who sign up for a grab and go meal that morning.
* A small group of seniors will be attending LBCC for a tour/visit of the manufacturing department. This includes, welding, non-destructive testing, mechanics, and mechatronics. Any senior interested in attending will need to return a signed “Permit to Attend Form” by October 13th for the trip. The group will be back to the high school around 12:00pm.
Student Dress Code
Please be familiar with our school district dress policies. Dress at school should be neat and appropriate. School staff will be enforcing dress code policies and may ask a student to remove a hat, change, or “cover up”, if inappropriate. Please help us minimize distractions from the learning environment. The student/parent handbook can be accessed online on the district website.
