A Weekly Newsletter for Warrior Families and Students
April 18, 2019
It has been an exciting week here at MHS for countless reasons! From students utilizing content learned in our geometry courses to create carnival games, to our AP Biology students Ryan Hassmann and James Klimek winning highest honors at the 2019 SEPA conference for their toxicology research. Additionally, we celebrated 15 scholar athletes who signed letters of intent to continue their athletic careers at NCAA Division III colleges next year. Our Warriors also won the Classic 8 Girls Track & Field Relay Meet Championship, breaking 8 school records along the way. To add to the excitement, senior scholar athlete Kate Jochims is one of 4 finalist in the state for the prestigious Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Associations Scholar Athlete Award. It is a great day to be a Warrior!
Enjoy the extra time away and we hope that everyone has an outstanding spring break! Go Warriors!
Spring Break is April 19-26
School resumes April 29

Help Computer Science Grow at MHS
MHS is excited to announce that we will be partnering with Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS to build and grow our Computer Science program. This partnership has allowed our students access to an Introduction to Computer Science course that is based on the award-winning University of California Berkeley CS10 course and is adapted specifically for high schools..
Currently, there are more than 500,000 open computer science positions without qualified talent to fill them across all industries. Our hope is to ensure that our students have access to the necessary education to open the opportunity for a successful career in this area.
Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS is a program that recruits, mentors, and places passionate technology professionals into high school classrooms as volunteer instructors. These volunteers bring subject matter expertise and will join to teach computer science together. TEALS provides training for both parties, rigorous curricula, and opportunities for students to continue their education outside of the classroom. If you or someone you know works in the computer science or software engineering field and would be interested in making a difference in our students’ future success, please contact Todd Irvine. You can also read more about TEALS on their website at http://www.tealsk12.org.
