Positive Actions

Commit to Graduate: C2G

MHHS spent a few moments Wednesday during advisory to celebrate the first annual Commit to Graduate assembly. During this assembly the students at MHHS heard about the importance of graduation and the impact education has on their lives both emotionally and financially. After students attended the assembly, they returned to their individual advisory classes where they received their very own C2G 5x7 picture of themselves in a graduation cap and gown. What a handsome and dignified group of students we have at MHHS! This process is the brainchild of Mr. Joe Fairchild, one of our history instructors.

Student Council: What’s the Buzz?

Student council has a new set of leaders. Ms. Thompson passed the torch to Ms. Dallolio and Mrs. Woodward in January after many years of dedicated service to the MHHS student council. Ms. Dallolio and Mrs. Woodward set a schedule of meetings for the student council every other week, once during a group lunch and once during the day. Lunches will sometimes be furnished by the Advisors for the Student Council. Possible ideas for Valentines Day include a romantic movie and long-stem roses. Leadership and Service Project activities are in the works as well as consultation with Katie Smith, the Minico Student Council Advisor.
