The Week in Snapshots
Students from PLUS lent a helping hand to our custodial crew, helping to keep MVHS clean. Thank you, PLUS!
ASB, Link Crew, and PLUS led students in an amazing lunchtime dance of Thriller to promote the Monster Mash dance, which is next Friday evening!
Great to have clubs, like Gamer's United, meeting back in person! Interested in joining a club? Head over to the ASB webpage for more information.

Seniors: Fill out the FAFSA or Dream Act Application!
All seniors are encouraged to do this, regardless of family income status. All too often, students hesitate to apply for college because they think it is cost-prohibitive, and on the flip side, some students think their family makes "too much" to qualify for any financial aid. Frequently, this is not the case. MVHS encourages ALL seniors to fill out the FAFSA or DreamAct application to find out what financial aid for college exists for them.
