From The Principal...
We have had an incredible week at MSHS! Congrats to our Girls’ Varsity Soccer team who is currently 11-0 for the season! Our performing arts students have hosted multiple fantastic performances and concerts, and we are looking forward to two more renditions of Freaky Friday tonight and tomorrow. Additionally, our Knowledge Bowl team faced off against staff members in a fierce competition yesterday to culminate their season. We’d also like to celebrate our Environmental Club students and Gabrielle Waters for planning a great week of spirit days and activities honoring Earth Day, including a fair with booths ranging from plant starters to thrifting to face painting!
Seniors have two weeks left and 9th-11th graders only have one month remaining! Thank you in advance for your partnership in supporting students finishing strong by prioritizing attendance and communicating proactively with staff.
Advanced Placement (AP) exams will run May 1-11, 2023. Individualized communication has been sent to all students and families enrolled in an AP exam. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to me (email@example.com).
We also are looking forward to World Language and Culture Night this upcoming Friday! We hope to see you there!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Robotics in Houston...
The Robotics Team had a great time at their competition in Houston. While they did not finish in the top half of teams, the students had a blast and learned some life skills at the same time. The team worked together and most importantly had fun.
"They were 100 percent awesome, which made the task of taking them to such a large event (42,000 attendees) just a pleasure. I think we made some memories that will last a lifetime," said Coach Steve Bethke.
