A Weekly Newsletter for Warrior Families and Students
February 19, 2021
Greetings Warrior Families and Friends,
It was another exciting week here at MHS. Both inside and outside of our classrooms, Warriors continue to engage in an incredibly broad range of activities that help them grow into the amazing young adults we know they are capable of becoming. Students in HOSA (Health Occupations Students for America) qualified for the state level competition while students in the musical are working diligently to create our first ever musical production that will be recorded like a movie and shared with our families later this spring. In so many ways, it is an absolute privilege to see students learning, growing, and succeeding. Thank you for your relentless support in this journey. We truly would not be the school or the community we are without this incredible partnership.
The midway point of our 3rd quarter is also a little over a week away. Please continue to monitor your student’s progress through Infinite Campus and by checking the “weekly agendas” linked on teacher webpages. Reach out to your teacher directly if you have any questions. If you need additional assistance, school counselors or any member of our administrative team are also available. We are all here to help!
Now, ready or not, here comes the last week of February! Let’s GO!
Have an awesome weekend and GO WARRIORS!
Virtual Parent/Teacher Conference
Please join us for Virtual Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday, March 4 from 3:30 - 7:30. You will be able to schedule either a Google Meet or Phone Conference with your child’s teacher(s).
We value our partnership with every child and family and hope that you have already been communicating with your child’s teachers. We respectfully ask that you choose which teachers to conference with strategically, focusing on those classes where your child may be experiencing difficulty.
To accommodate all of our families, conferences will be 8 minutes in length. You can always arrange an additional time to meet with your child’s teacher(s) if needed.
Sign-up for an individual conference with your student(s) teachers HERE
Please monitor your email for future communication about how to join your scheduled Google Video Meet or Phone Conference on March 4!
Juniors - ACT Registration
Due to information released to us by ACT, we need to change the date that all of our Junior students will be completing the registration for their ACT accounts and the inputting of demographic information. We are canceling the February 23rd event in the PAC as was scheduled. Students will now be creating their ACT accounts and completing the demographic information in their English 11 or AP Lang classes during one class period on either March 1, 2, 3, or 4th.

Update: Classic 8 Winter Home and Away Sport Contests
Our schools continue to be open and our curricular co-curricular activities are operational under our local health department guidelines. However, it is important to draw our families' attention to an overriding principle. Although we love to see our whole community at each of our district's events; during this unprecedented time, we are asking our families to operate under a singular school community and singular family mindset when attending events. Essentially, keeping each school's events to just that school's clientele and only the families with active participants or performers in the event.
Update: Classic 8 Winter Home and Away Sport Contests
Beginning January 7, 2021, the Classic 8 has issued a revision to the Winter Sport Spectator Guidelines.
Home spectators remain at 4 immediate family members per participating athlete. NEW: Visiting spectators are limited to 2 immediate family members per visiting participating athlete.
Still in effect:
Admission to all Classic 8 contests are not open to the general public, students, and staff.
An appropriate mask/face covering, as directed by Gov. Evers, must be worn at all times.
For away contests, please consult our Activities website, 1Warrior.org, or the opponent's home website for streaming links.
We recognize that many of our students' support systems are their family members and it means a great deal to our students to have their closest advocates in attendance supporting their athletic, musical, and leadership endeavors. We are excited to see our students in their winter season performances, competitions, and school community-building events!
