This Week at MHS

Here's what is happening November 23rd-27th

MHS Parents and Students,

As we enter into this week, the holiday season has officially begun. Like many of you, we look forward to time with families and friends, good food, family traditions, and extra naps on the couch.


We want to take this moment to let you know how thankful we are to you for sharing your students with us each day. We are grateful for each day that we get to see our students, engage them in learning, watch them participate in the activities they love, and be part of their lives during these unique times.


From our MHS Family to yours, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving filled with family and love!

DECISIONS FOR SECOND SEMESTER

Any student/family (whether traditional, hybrid or digital right now) who wishes to begin the second semester as a digital or hybrid student MUST contact your school counselor by 3pm on Tuesday, November 24th. If we do not hear from your family by this date and time we will move forward as though your student(s) will be served in the traditional format. This ensures enough time to make any necessary changes to student and teacher schedules prior to Winter Break. Please remember that in the second semester (January through May), the only opportunity to make a change from digital to hybrid or vice-versa will be at Spring Break. Students will be expected to remain in their chosen mode of instruction for a complete nine weeks.

Testing Window starts December 1st

The Fall State Testing window begins December 1st, right after we return from Thanksgiving break. Students that are currently enrolled in English 2, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and United States History. Please reference the calendar on our school website to see the dates for these tests. Due to the paper format provided by the state, all students -including digital- will be required to test at MHS. During this same time frame, students who are taking a State or Local Dual Credit course will also be taking their exams.


Final exams for MHS classes will be December 14th and 15th, even though these days are digital.

Football Tickets for Friday Night

General Admission Tickets for this Friday's football game at Oakland will go on sale Tuesday afternoon on GoFan.co. All tickets for playoffs game will all be sold electronically the week of the game.

INFORMATION FOR SENIOR PARENTS

Senior parents: Isn't it hard to believe that your child is already a quarter of the way through his/her senior year of high school? College application season is here, and MHS school counselors want to remind you about some important processes and deadlines.


  • Complete the FAFSA to receive financial aid like HOPE, TN Promise, and others. https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa
  • Complete the TN Promise Application by 12/1/20 to be eligible for two year's tuition free at a community college/technical school. www.tnpromise.gov
  • Once applications are submitted be sure to list your colleges in SCOIR under "Applied" to have official documents submitted. Here is a helpful video that walks you through the steps of using Scoir to request documents: Scoir Process
  • In your SCOIR account, be sure to add your personal email address under "Personal Details" in your profile and verify it. That allows colleges to connect your information more quickly.

The deadline for the TN Promise Scholarship Application has been extended to December 1, 2020. If you are a senior and haven't yet completed the TN Promise Scholarship application, you have a few more weeks to do so.


Deadlines for the UT Promise Scholarship are quickly approaching! UT Promise is a last-dollar scholarship for students accepted into undergraduate programs at UT Knoxville, Chattanooga, Martin and Memphis. In addition to meeting TN Promise and UT Promise eligibility requirements, students must also be eligible for the Hope scholarship and have a household income of less than $50,000. UT Promise functions separately from TN Promise and can only be used for universities in the UT system. To learn more about the UT Promise scholarship visit the program webpage: https://tennessee.edu/ut-promise/


There are several school specific scholarships due on December 1st including: UT Dallas, Maryville College, University of VA, Boston University and Davidson College. As always, we encourage seniors to peruse the Scholarships tab on the MHS School Counseling 20-21 Canvas page.
