MHS Choir has a new website!
Since we cannot sing in-person this year, or perform for a live audience, I thought we would share what we've been working on in this format! During January and February both choirs prepared individual long songs, as well as a choral version of "Love is Love" by Matthew Armstrong.
In addition each singer recorded themselves at home and submitted their tracks to me. I hope you enjoy watching and listening to these fantastic musicians, and please check out our new site.I am very proud of all of them all!
Be sure to check out Best Buddies' "Inclusion Garden" on the windows outside the cafeteria!
Each year, Best Buddies is part of "Spread the Word: Inclusion," a campaign intended to build connections and ensure that everyone feels seen, heard, and valued. To take part, the MHS chapter of Best Buddies created flower templates with prompts relating to inclusion and kindness. Members of the club as well as the overall MHS student body were invited to color and decorate flowers, as were students at the QMS. The "Inclusion Garden" reflects the inclusion and unity present throughout the Mansfield school district!
Congratulations to students on the Honor Roll for second quarter!
Studying and learning is a somewhat invisible thing- it happens after school and on weekends, in hours set aside by students, often at a cost to their own social life or desires to binge Netflix. It's not easy. And because we are taught not to boast, a report card full of A's and B's, brings a quiet and private high five at home among our loved ones, instead of splashy headlines. So here is a shoutout for the many hundreds of you who walked that path! Click on the picture to the right for a link to the full list.

Please wear black on April 15 and 16 to show support for Day of Silence
April 23rd has been named Day of Silence, a national student-led demonstration where LGBTQ students and allies all around the country take a vow of silence to protest the harmful effects of harassment and and to call attention to the discrimination and silencing of LGBTQ people in schools. This year, the Day of Silence theme is “My Silence, My Story.” Because LGBTQ people in schools are often silenced and erased, this direct action is a reclamation of that forced silence and erasure.
While we will not be taking the vow of silence that day we ask that you join us in recognizing and celebrating LGBTQ people in our community and beyond and the silencing of their voices on Thursday April 15 and Friday April 16th by wearing all black to show your support and allyship.
If you’re interested in more information about the GSA or how to be an ally, please join our google classroom or contact Ms. Martinelli or Ms. McCarthy for more information.
Business Club is discussing the upcoming Virtual Business Scholarship Challenge. This year's challenge is based on Knowledge Matters' Entrepreneurship simulation! If any Entrepreneurship students are interested in joining to compete, please feel free to attend. Google Classroom code: fayys3w
