MRHS Staff

I am overwhelmed with pride to be a part of a group of people who care so much for each other and their school. As a new counselor to MRHS with previous high school experience I wasn't sure what I would find when I got here, but it has been awesome. I appreciate the consideration you all have shown for the school from giving gifts to students in need to allowing students to throw pies in your faces, we got a great group of teachers and staff here. Thanks for making my transition a welcoming one, and I hope you all have a happy holiday break!

-Jason Matthies

Send a shout-out to everyone for everything. Plus, a Shout-Out goes to everyone who brought everything for the Fun Food Fridays. Made the quarter go by so smoothly.

-Mary Murray

A BIG thanks to all the teachers who have made the extra effort to provide excellent accommodations and modifications to our ELLs to make sure they are successful on their finals. From modifying the language on the exams, reading the tests aloud, allowing them to take the test with me so I can explain difficult vocabulary and/or concepts, and many more. It truly makes a difference. THANK YOU!
