From the Principal...

We are officially in the month of November and have just a few weeks left before Thanksgiving Break. During the days before our time off, students and staff continue to remain focused and dedicated to making the most of their time at MSHS. We started off the week with our World Language Students gaining some cultural perspective at the UCCS campus. Students were treated to a welcome speech, a tour of the campus, class visits in their languages, a Día de los Muertos exhibit, snacks and language games in the UCCS Excel Language Learning Center. Some even got to meet the University Chancellor Doctor Venkat Reddy! We are so grateful that our World Language team made this experience possible.
