Principal's Weekly Message
Good afternoon Middle Creek High School families,
Believe it or not, October is here! It was a spirited Homecoming week with great participation in our spirit-days, a high energy pep rally, and big win on Friday night. We also had a great turnout for the Homecoming Dance last night, and hope all our students who attended had a wonderful time.
We are half-way through 1st Quarter, so make sure to check in with your students about their progress thus far. Progress reports should have come home for each class last week, and grades are up-to-date in powerschool. After the half-way point, any unexcused missing/late work will need to be turned in by Oct. 4th, if they would like to still receive partial credit. For AP classes, students should check with their teachers about any late work policy guidelines.
Below are some reminders and informational items for your calendars.
