Greetings Middle Creek High School families,
It was another fantastic week of school here at the Creek. It was such a joy to see and celebrate our seniors this week at our Senior Parade, and the students and staff continue to get more and more comfortable with the new school routines. Below is some important details for next week, as well as reminders and Senior items that we hope keep you you informed.
Reminders & Information:
Update to schedule next week:
Next Wednesday, September 16, we are having a mid-month Mustang Support Day. Your student will be meeting with their administrator and counselor in the morning to receive updates, reminders, support information, and give us feedback on their remote learning. Students will receive a link to the specific grade-level meeting Wednesday morning in their school email, and the meeting times are as follows:
9th grade: 8:00
10th grade: 9:00
11th grade: 10:00

Students will then have access to their teachers from 1:00pm - 3:00pm. All teachers will be live in a Google Meet to be available for anything your child may need during that time . This is NOT a day off of school. Attendance will be taken during the morning meetings. We encourage your child to take advantage of this time and the opportunity Wednesday to receive help from their teachers, especially as interims are approaching.
