The holiday season is approaching quickly and the school is full of activity. Recently our performing arts students staged “George Washington Slept Here”. Our winter band and chorus concert will be coming up on the 19th. Congratulations and good luck to those talented students who participate in these activities.
The fall athletic teams finished their seasons and we are now moving into the winter season. Please visit the athletic web-page for the winter team schedules. Congratulations to the girls’ cross-country team for winning the league title. I’d also like to congratulate all of the seniors who completed their school career with their fall sports team.
With all of these wonderful extra-curricular activities taking place, it is sometimes easy for our students to lose sight of their academic pursuits. This is the time of year that is extremely important for them to stay focused and work toward academic excellence. Parents, please spend some extra time explaining to your children the importance of finishing the calendar year on an academic high note.
In our continued efforts to bring MHS into the 21st century, the high school administrative team and staff are working on a framework of change. The areas of focus include the following:
1. Communication and Relationships
2. Leadership and Empowerment
3. Planning and Evaluation
5. Accountability and Responsibility
6. Consistency and Redundancy
7. Student Growth and Staff Development
I wish everyone a safe and happy winter break.
