Principal's Weekly Message

Good evening Middle Creek High School families, 

It was another great week here at The Creek. Monday starts the last week of Third Quarter, so we hope all our students are making the most of today's workday getting their coursework completed and/or enjoying some down time before next week. Below are some updates & reminders that we are helpful.


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, but as long as junior and senior dues are paid, the event will be free for them. 

Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this unexpected change.


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 - 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 ( for additional information or with any questions you may have!


Information from Student Services:

Junior Parent Night  

Student Services will hold a virtual Junior Parent Night on March 23 at 6:00 pm 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!


2022-2023 Course Registration Updates

Next week, all students will receive a copy of the course selections that they entered during course registration.  Please carefully review this list of courses with your student to make sure that families are in agreement with the courses selected.  Students should return the signed sheet to Student Services by March 25.  They can indicate any adjustments they would like to make to their courses at this time.
