Seniors: Please report scholarships to Student Services!
Senior and senior families, we want to recognize seniors who have been awarded scholarships this year and include them on our Senior Scholarship Listing. Please take a picture of the scholarship letters that you have received and email to Mrs. Mercado in Student Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. Last year’s seniors received over $8 million in scholarships and we know the Class of 2023 will represent just as well! Make sure to check our Scholarship listing page as we have posted several new available scholarships over the past few weeks.
Sophomore Counselor Meetings and Virtual Sophomore Parent Meeting
Counselors have begun meeting with all tenth grade students in small groups to talk about planning and preparing for the second half of high school. Students will receive their PreACT scores in these meetings and discuss how to read the scores and how to use the scores to prepare for the ACT that they will take in spring of their junior year. Student Services will host a virtual parent meeting with these topics on March 2, 2023 at 6 pm. The google meet code will be posted on the MCHS website that afternoon for any parents of tenth grade students who would like to attend.
Below are some of the events scheduled next week.

That concludes my news for next week. I hope you all have a great long weekend!
