Week at a Glance

September 18 - September 22

We are sending out a Week at a Glance (WAAG) as a means to inform students and parents of the upcoming important events and announcements for the week. For general information, please visit our website at http://moh.sweetwaterschools.org/

Message from the Principal - Mr. Zumstein

Greetings Aztecs,

While the fall break is just around the corner this time of year can bring on many emotions for students, staff, and parents. Feeling anxious and stressed are normal feelings to have right now. We encourage everyone to use their strengths to cope with or prevent negative feelings. About half of our students have taken the adult version of the Clifton Strength Finder Assessment. Our goal by the end of the semester is to have assessed 100% of our students. Please take some time to reflect on your strengths when you encounter tough times or how you can use them to prevent tough situations. In addition to using your strengths make sure to fall back on our core value of resilience. These strategies can get you through just about anything but also don't forget we got each other to offer support when needed. Work hard this week so you can enjoy the break to the fullest. We got this Aztecs!

From the Assistant Principals

As part of our commitment to adhering to our Aztec Values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience, MOH has implemented a non-privilege list effective 8/23/2023.

Click here to access the list

At this time, the non-privilege list includes students with the following:

  • Attendance: 8 full day absences/48 single period absences
  • Discipline: Any students suspended from school the first 6 weeks of school. Any new suspensions will be added to the list.

Any students on this list are prohibited from attending extra-curricular activities or school dances.

The list is reviewed weekly and emailed to students and parents each week. Students may clear ONE full day absence by attending Saturday School. The Saturday School schedule and sign up form are available on the WAAG. The WAAG can be found on our website and is emailed to all Aztecs through Jupiter every Sunday. Any students on the list for student discipline will be re-evaluated at the next grading period.


Aztec Values are the foundation of how we treat one another on campus. Assistant Principals visited classrooms the first two week of school to explain the expectations of all students at MOH. Always remember to be respectful, responsible and resilient to our Aztec Family.
