Happenings on the Hill
MHBS 5-12 Communications/December 18, 2015
There's No Place Like Home(coming)
We'll be kicking off 2016 with Homecoming the week we return following the break. This year's theme is "There's No Place Like Home(coming)," and students will be dressing and decorating halls for various destinations around the country.
Monday: Hall Decorating can begin at 3 p.m.; see flyers on bulletin boards for details.
Tuesday: (Sleepless in) Seattle (Wear Your PJs to school!)
Wednesday: Nashville (Gather your cowboy hats and boots!)
Thursday: Honolulu (Enjoy the island life as you dress in luau attire!)
Friday: New Orleans (Let the Good Times Roll with Mardi Gras beads & colors!)
Then Friday night, enjoy Homecoming festivities at 5 p.m. in the New Gym.
There's no place like home, and there's no place like Mars Hill.
