Principal's Weekly Message

Good afternoon Middle Creek High School families, 


I hope all of our students and families have had a great week and are headed into some fun and family time this long weekend.  Today all students received their Quarter 1 report cards, so please check bags if you haven’t seen them. You can also check powerschools, as Q1 grades are showing finalized in the Parent Portal as well.  Reminder that tomorrow all staff and students are off in honor of Veteran’s Day.  My gratitude goes out to all the men and women who have served our country and preserve our freedom.

I have a couple of calendar items and updates below.  Thank you for your attention to these details. 


Information & Reminders:

Spirit Night! Monday

Our MCHS PTSA has been and continues to be busy! First, thank you to all who generously donated to the Middle Creek High School Giving Campaign. Thanks to you, the MCHS PTSA raised more than $4,500 to support programs and activities that impact our students and staff. 

In the continued spirit of fundraising, join us from 5 to 9 p.m. on  Monday, Nov. 13 for spirit nights with Aye! Toro Tacos at 303 Matthews Drive in Holly Springs.
