Principal's Weekly Message

Good evening Middle Creek High School families, 


I hope all our families had another great week. Next week is a 4 day week for students, with Friday being a Teacher Workday. Below is some helpful information for all our families, as well as some specific Junior and Senior updates.


Information & Reminders:

Update to Prom 2022:

Due to unforeseen circumstances with our original venue, the MCHS Prom 2022 has a new date and location. We know how important this event is for our Juniors and Seniors and we have found a great location where we will host a fantastic event.

Please update your calendars with our new Prom information:

Friday, April 29th at 8:00pm. @ Sheraton Imperial Hotel @ RTP


More information will be shared in the coming weeks about tickets and guest forms. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this unexpected change.

Attention Seniors: Cap & Gown Pick-Up!

Jostens will be on campus on Wednesday, March 16th during lunch in the front lobby to deliver cap & gown units and senior products. All items must be paid for in full before students can receive their products.

Online payments must be made 48 hours prior to the delivery date.  Cash or money order only will be accepted on the delivery date.


Check out The Creek Flow!

Middle Creek HS has some amazing student writers! As a part of our Newspaper class, the students and advisor produce an online newspaper:  The Creek Flow .  Students would love to see increased viewership, so head to the site to check out some of their recent features.


Support MCHS Student in his Campaign:

Andrew Zarcone, student at MCHS, is a candidate for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Student of the Year Campaign. Over the next few weeks he will be raising money alongside his team in support of the fight against blood cancers. The efforts from this campaign will help to fund therapies and treatments that are saving lives!

If you are interested and willing to support his team and their cause,

Information from Student Services:

Junior Parent Night  

Student Services will hold a virtual Junior Parent Night on March 23 in both English and Spanish for juniors and their parents.  We will go over information about post-graduation planning that is currently being shared with juniors in their junior meetings.  Links for these meetings will be on the MCHS website on the afternoon of 3/23.  We look forward to logging in with all of our junior parents to discuss the important time of post-high school planning that starts now!


Senior Scholarship Recognition

We want to recognize the hard work of all of our seniors and the scholarship offers they have received!  Please email a picture/pdf of the scholarship letter or award to Mrs. Mercado at or have students stop by Student Services and we will make a copy of their letters.  Even if a student received a scholarship offer to a school they are not attending we can include that in our scholarship total and recognition, so make sure to send in scholarship info today!


Career and College Promise Interest Meeting

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.  Students who are interested in taking a class at Wake Tech through CCP for the first time during the summer or fall of 2022 should sign up to attend the CCP Interest Meeting on March 11 during blocks 1 or 4.  More information and sign up are found at:
