Principal's Weekly Message
Good evening Middle Creek High School families,
It was another great week at The Creek!
Things ran smoothly for our early release day and I hope everyone is headed into a fun-filled weekend. Next week is the last week of Third Quarter, followed by our Spring Break. Reminder that Friday, March 31st is a teacher workday, so there will be no school for students that day as well.
Below are some additional reminders for next week and your future calendars.

The MCHS Junior/Senior Prom 2023 will be Saturday, April 15th from 8:00-11:00pm. and the theme is: Starry Night! The prom will be held at the Sheraton Imperial in Durham which is the same location as last year. Students can obtain forms during lunches & on our website mainpage. All juniors and seniors who have paid all fees and fines (including grade level dues) will get a free ticket to attend. Guest tickets will be $60. More information on tickets and dance details will be included on the forms. Forms will need to be turned in to the front office.

This meeting will review very important information, so please plan to attend.
Is your senior interested in pursuing a career in teaching?
If you have a graduating senior who plans to attend a college or university for the fall semester and who intends to pursue a K-12 teaching career please consider applying for this amazing opportunity through WCPSS. The deadline to apply for the Future Teachers Program is Mar. 31st.
Graduation Caps and Gowns -
Cap and Gown pick up is Monday, March 27th during both lunches in the front lobby. Students should come during their lunch time to pick up their cap and gown. If you have not ordered yet, please visit Jostens.com for more information.
Senior Slideshow - One LAST Call
This year we will be creating a senior slideshow with pictures submitted by Seniors and their families. We are asking all seniors to complete the form linked below sharing 3 pictures (per senior) that represent them and their time in school or at MCHS or growing up. These pictures must be school appropriate, as the slide show will be created and shared with seniors as part of a celebration activity towards the end of the year. If you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The last date to complete the form will be January 13th.
