Good afternoon MHS families,
Yesterday we welcomed our staff back to the building and began to set the stage for the upcoming school year. There was an energy and enthusiasm in the building that was refreshing, having gone through a few challenging years due to the pandemic.
Looking forward, we are excited to welcome students back on Tuesday! Each fall is an exciting time in education as it represents a new opportunity for growth and development. I am looking forward to a great year, and I am excited to finally welcome students back and get to know them in my first year.
There are some important updates and reminders below, so please be sure to take the time to look them over.
I hope everyone enjoys their long weekend, and I look forward to working with families and community members throughout the school year!
