FROM THE OFFICE OF STUDENT AFFAIRS
Yearbooks are coming!
If you ordered a book in advance, it’s time to dig out that green receipt card that was sent home to you in the mail. Books can be picked up starting June 1at lunch and after school at the Yearbook Office, C111.  If you can’t find your receipt card, we charge $5.00 to cover the additional handling. 
The last day for book pick is June12.    
Attention Juniors:  It is time to take your Senior Portrait!  Prestige Portraits by Life Touch is our exclusive photographer.  They are coming to MHS on May 18 – 21.  Each student has been assigned a portrait time - appointments are posted outside Carol Scheffler’s Office, as well as having been sent home.  Students should do their best to make this appointment!  It is good to get this out of the way and not have to worry about it next year.  And, if you take it now, you will have more time to do a retake if necessary.  Sitting fee is $20 but is fully refundable when you return your proof sets.  Women should wear simple tops in solid colors.  Men can wear collared shirts with or without ties and jackets.

PTSA Fundraising

The PTSA works to facilitate communication between parents and the administration. Our funds are used for speakers, community-building activities and to help ensure that all students have access to school activities including field trips and the Junior Prom. We also help defray the cost of the Yearbook and assist with events such as Freshman Orientation, Senior Week activities and Homecoming Brunch.  

We ask you to support our fundraisers. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Karen Regan at krnregan@gmail.com or Chris Hofstedt at hofstedt@verizon.net.

Here are some of our fundraising activities this year:
