Weekly Spotlight On MPHS!

Dr. B's Weekly Update: 4/6/2018

3rd Annual Pledge Day Is Coming!

On April 12th, MPHS will, once again, welcome members of our military to join our students in saying the Pledge of Allegiance. Each year, service members from all military branches, reserves, active duty and retired, show up to join our students in saying our morning Pledge. It is a reminder for our students as to why we take time each morning to say the Pledge and an opportunity for students to ask questions of our service members. We invite all of our MPCS military family and friends to join us on Thursday, April 12th, at 6;45 AM in the HS library. Pass the word!

MPHS Introduces Health Sciences for 2018-2019!

The MPHS Medical Club (affiliated with the national organization, HOSA) has grown from 6 members to over 75 members (from an applicant pool of 200) in just three years! With that level of interest in health sciences, we have spent this year working with Nurse Pollack to design the first phase of our Health Sciences Direction here at MPHS. Nurse Pollack received her official Provision Teaching License from VDOE this week, and we are SO EXCITED to add her to our faculty for next school year! See the digital catalog for more information about the courses she'll be teaching!
