This Week at MHS

Here's what is happening the week of March 22nd-26th!

Dear MHS Parents and Students,

Welcome Back from break! We hope that you and your family found time to rest and relax. We are ready to push forward to the finish line. Nine weeks of school left to conquer!


Congratulations to our Girl's Basketball team for their outstanding season. It was incredible to watch them play their hearts out in Murfreesboro! Congrats to Denae Fritz for winning the Class AAA Miss Basketball title. We are so proud of you ladies!


Rising Seniors - SAVE THE DATE - Senior Pictures will be held in the MHS Library May 26th and 27th. More information will be coming to you from McEachern Photography, the new photo company for MHS.


Reminder that all schools will be closed on April 2nd and April 5th.


MHS will no longer take student temperatures twice a week prior to starting the school day. Since we began this practice in July, we have not recorded one high temperature at these stations. All athletic events and practices must continue to take temperatures in accordance with TSSAA guidelines.


It's Spring Sports TIme! Let's get outside and cheer on our teams. Game Schedules are listed below each day.


The digital parent season passes for spring sports are now live on our GoFan page. We are also offering a student spring season pass for $20! https://gofan.co/app/school/TN11339


Please don't forget to purchase your raffle ticket to support the MCS Foundation Children's Fun. More information below!


We remind everyone that all students are expected to wear a face covering when social distancing cannot occur. We appreciate your support in caring for the health and well being of our school community.

We are excited to begin PRESS ON small groups with our students in the month of April! It's a crazy world out there with Covid complications, college and career decisions, school and athletic pressures, relationships, jobs, homework and more. The MHS Counseling Team wants to help students "PRESS ON" through what can be a stressful and overwhelming time in life. We will be offering the opportunity for students to sign up for 4-week, counselor led small groups addressing common needs like stress management, future planning, anxiety, and other regularly requested supports. PRESS ON groups will meet in the month of April with the opportunity to participate before school from 7:45-8:15 or after school from 3:30-4:00 for a total of four weekly sessions. We encourage you to discuss this opportunity with your child if you feel this group may be a good fit for his/her needs. Students can access more information and register for the group via the MHS School Counseling Canvas page.
