Principal's Weekly Message
Good afternoon Middle Creek High School families,
I hope all of our families have been enjoying this long weekend and celebrating Memorial Day. May we all take time today to pause and reflect on those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Below are some reminders & information for next week.
Information & Reminders:
Final Exam Information:
Final exams for second semester classes will be held on-campus the week of June 5th-9th. Students will be taking either teacher-made exams or a state-mandated exam (CTE or EOC courses). Reminder, that final exam participation is required unless you have a 12th grader that has earned exemption status for a particular course. Final exams will count for 20% of the final course grade.
The schedule for final exams is provided below and will be reviewed with students in their homeroom in the coming weeks. Each day students will have one exam, time for lunch, and then have scheduled time to review for an upcoming exam or complete other work. Bus transportation will run as normal.
Most students will not report to campus on Friday, unless they have to make-up an exam missed earlier in the week.
Schedule-Spring 2023 Exam Schedule
If a student would like to be dismissed and picked up prior to the study hall, parents may approve that option. Below is the permission form that must completed and signed in order for a student to be dismissed after their exam period (12:00ish). Students will need to turn this permission form in to their teacher on the day of each exam. Students who are planning to take advantage of early dismissal must leave campus at the end of the exam period and may not come back to campus unless they have an athletic practice or extracurricular activity.
Donate Blood & Support the MCHS Band!
MCHS Band Boosters are partnering with The Blood Connection to sponsor a blood drive at the Walmart in Holly Springs (mobile unit on site) on Saturday, June 3rd. Each donor will receive $40 in rewards and a $20 charitable donation per donor will be made to the band! Each blood donation saves up to 3 lives! Donors need to be at least 16 years old (16-year-old need a permission slip signed by a parent which will be at the blood drive), weigh at least 110 pounds, have ID and be in general good health.
