This Week at MHS

Here's what is happening the week of April 19th-23rd!

Dear MHS Parents and Students,

This week continues State End of Course testing in English. From this point until the end of the year, our students will be engaged in testing for EOCs, State and Local Dual Credit, AP exams, and final exams for the semester. We are quickly reaching the end of the school year. I recommend all parents log in to PowerSchool to check your student’s progress. School counselors will be reaching out to students who may need to consider summer school this year - May 24 through June 18th. Let’s keep up the hard work and finish this year strong.


SENIORS - senior fees should be submitted by this Friday, April 23rd.


We want to wish the MHS Swim team the best of luck as they head to the State competition April 24th and 25th! Go Rebels!


Rising Seniors - SAVE THE DATE - Senior Pictures will be held in the MHS Library May 26th and 27th. More information will be coming to you from McEachern Photography, the new photo company for MHS.


TSSAA has revised some of the COVID policies and temperatures will no longer be taken at sporting events. Masks are still required for entry and to be worn if you are not able to social distance from individuals outside your family circle. Thank you for helping us to meet the TSSAA expectations.


We remind everyone that all students are expected to wear a face covering when social distancing cannot occur. We appreciate your support in caring for the health and well being of our school community.

Announcing the Maryville High School Job Board

We are pleased to announce the MHS Job Board located at https://mhs.maryville-schools.org/classrooms/career-and-technical (also see QR code below). When local employers contact MHS with job opportunities, school staff update the job board with information for students to apply. Although we created this board with MHS Work Based Learning students in mind, it is available to all students. We invite you to visit the board especially if your student is looking for employment!

What is Work Based Learning?

Work Based Learning (WBL) at Maryville High School centers on engagement from community businesses to provide authentic learning experiences for students. One of the most exciting parts of WBL is the CTE Career Practicum (WBL) course! This course allows students to gain valuable work experience and skills while earning high school credit. Local employers benefit from a recruitment pipeline that supports workforce needs. Teachers recommend students for this course and students must complete an application process with me. The application process results in WBL student hires being responsible, having good attendance, and having already taken related coursework. If you are an employer and would like to post a job on the MHS Job Board, you may either email the information to Rosanna.giles@maryville-schools.org or complete the job board form at https://forms.gle/fybSe23N81j9GV8c9. The WBL program offers equal opportunity to all qualified applicants without regard to race, sex, color, religion, national origin, or disability.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is hiring for this summer's high school internship program. The program is looking for applicants from the Class of 2021 and 2022 that enjoy the outdoors and have a good attitude. This paid position is a 6-week internship that starts June 7. COVID safety will be prioritized. Participants will learn how to band, handle and release birds, will use electrofishing to monitor fish populations and will assist biologists in collaring and measuring newborn elk calves. To apply, visit the announcements tab on the MHS School Counseling Canvas page or the MHS webpage for more information.


MHS school counselors have created a virtual appointment request for our students. If your child would like to meet with his/her school counselor, please direct them to this link https://mhs.maryville-schools.org/parents-students/guidance or encourage them to drop by guidance in person. The best part of our day is meeting with students and we can't wait to become better acquainted with your son or daughter.
