Principal's Weekly Message
Good afternoon Middle Creek High School families,
We had a great week back from break and I hope everyone enjoyed some of this beautiful weather this weekend.
Below are some updates and reminders for our last week of April. Just a quick reminder that we have a 5 day week this week, with a Teacher Workday on Monday, May 2nd.
Information & Reminders:
Parent Feedback Needed!
As we head into the final weeks of the 2021-2022 school year, it is time to collect some feedback from our parent community.
Wake County Public Schools is administering a District Wide Family Survey (Panorama) from now through Friday, May 6. This survey provides families the opportunity to provide valuable information and a high-quality data source for planning and School Improvement.
The survey has been translated into various languages; Spanish, Arabic, French, Korean, Vietnamese, and Chinese in an effort to provide accessibility to families in Wake County Public Schools. The survey administration language can be chosen by families before taking the survey.
Thank you to all the senior parents who attended the parent meeting on Monday night - we had a great turnout. The link is below for anyone who was not able to attend the meeting. Also, a letter was sent home at the beginning of April with lots of clarifying information related to graduation. If you did not receive this letter, please find it linked below. Lastly, a few questions were brought up regarding Yearbooks and Senior Signs. Those questions have been answered and are also below.
If you have any questions regarding graduation or senior activities and need Spanish translation - please contact Ms. Bozman at email@example.com. All other senior questions can be directed to Ms. Megronigle at firstname.lastname@example.org and graduation questions can be directed to Ms. Spodnick at email@example.com.

*Specific reminder that our seniors will have a group photo taken on Wednesday at 9:00am in the MCHS Gym. Seniors should bring their caps and gowns for the photo and Lifetouch will have purchase order forms available at that time. Seniors should plan to bring their caps and gowns with them to start the day as there will not be time for them to go to their cars before the photo.
Information from Student Services:
Important Information about AP testing
AP Testing will begin for all students on May 2. Please carefully read the AP Information shared at this link prior to testing so that you and your student are prepared to have the best possible AP testing experience.
UNC System Update: Waiver for Standardized Testing
Please see the attached memo from the UNC System Office that outlines the Board of Governors’ decision to waive the standardized testing component for students applying for admission through Fall 2024 due to the disruption in the learning environment from COVID-19. UNC Waiver Information
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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. The MCHS Scholarship Website is a place that students can look for available scholarships, new ones are added frequently! Currently, we are over $2 million dollars and we know there are lots more academic, athletic, arts, and admissions scholarships out there to recognize!
