Principal's Weekly Message
Good evening Middle Creek High School families,
I hope everyone has had a great week. We are over half-way through the 3rd Quarter, with Spring sports kicking off this weekend and next week. As we close out February and start March, I have provided some information and details below that I hope will be helpful.
One quick calendar item I will highlight is the MCHS School Musical- showing tonight and tomorrow night at 6:30pm in the Auditorium. Our students are proud to invite you to our first musical since 2020, Big Fish. You can purchase tickets online ($7 for students, $12 for adults), or purchase at the door for $15 cash. To purchase online, head to “tinyurl.com/mchstheatre”!
Below are some remaining updates and reminders.
Information & Reminders:
MCHS 2022-2023 Curriculum & Registration Information:
Believe it or not, it is time to start thinking about course registration for the 2022-2023 school year! Over the past week we have shared lots of important information about various classes (core & electives) and the registration process for our families. Recorded information on the registration process and about specific courses can be found on our Student Services site.
Interested in Band for Next Year?
All new and returning students interested in being involved in the band program next year should complete the interest form - www.tinyurl.com/mchsband2223. No experience is required. We're even offering a beginning section for students who would like to learn a new instrument if they didn't do band in MS... or if they didn't continue in MS band during the virtual learning of the last two years. There is a place for everyone within our band program, and we want you to jump back in or join for the first time. Contact Mr. Newsome (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional information or with any questions you may have!
Volunteers Needed for Competition in March:
The MCHS Band Program is in need of volunteers for our upcoming Winter Classic Guard and Percussion competition on Saturday March 12, 2022. This is a great opportunity for students who may need volunteer service hours, or community members who would like to be involved and help that day as we welcome 40 school groups from around the state as they perform/compete throughout the day in our main gym. Interested and willing volunteers should visit the Link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090c4ba9a929aa8-mchs2
ACT: All Juniors:
All Juniors will participate in the ACT on Tuesday, March 1. Testing will begin promptly at 7:25. On test day, all students should bring:
Sharpened #2 Pencils
Detailed information about taking the ACT can be found here. There will be an information session for all students on Tuesday, February 22. During that session, students will learn their specific testing location, complete demographic information on their answer documents, and create a MyACT account. ACT preparation materials can be found here.
Information from Student Services:

The Career and College Promise Program allows eligible high school students to take classes at community colleges for free while they are enrolled in high school. This program is best suited for rising juniors and seniors and students must have a 2.8 unweighted GPA to participate.
