After school, the Yearbook Office, C 111, will be open from 2:30 – 2:50 for the entire school to pick up their books. The Yearbook Office will continue to be open every day at lunch and after school from June 2 – June 15 for book pick up. June 15th will be the last day books may be picked up.

If you purchased your book by sending in a check to MHS, your child should bring their yellow receipt card. If you purchased your yearbook online, your child must bring a printed copy of their online receipt when they pick up their book as proof of purchase.

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 Michele Sloane.

Here are some of our fundraising activities this year:  

STOP & SHOP A+ BONUS BUCKS PROGRAM: The program has ended for this school year and we have raised $21,000 for the district and $5,200 of that is for MHS!!  Thank you to everyone who participated.  Since the program started we’ve raised almost $100k in the district!  Your weekly food shopping can benefit the schools. Any questions, contact  Michele Sloane. We will be participating again next year, so keep an eye out for sign up information.
