Career Center Workshops on Thursdays

We will be hosting workshops every Thursday from 2:45-3:30pm. This month we will focus on Job Readiness and Preparation. Workshops will cover how to build a resume, email etiquette, interview skills and more. All students are welcome! Sign up here, or just stop by if you have time!

College Visits are Happening!

If you are interested in meeting with college reps, don’t forget to sign up. We have college reps meeting with students both virtually and in-person. Sign up here

Seniors: Fill out the FAFSA or Dream Act Application!

Seniors! Click here to find out more information about filling 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.

During the past week (since last Friday), MVHS had one new case of COVID-19 among students/staff.

School community members can also follow up-to-the-minute data on our District's COVID-19 Dashboard.
