College Recruiters Visit MHS

Juniors and Seniors,

We have college recruiters coming to our campus in October and November. This is a great opportunity to visit with admissions representatives and get specific questions answered. If you are interested in the presentations, see Mrs. Greaser in the N-R alpha house or email her at Students will be excused from class. Click HERE to see the schedule...

Caps & Gowns!

Parents of Juniors and Seniors,

West Texas Graduation Services, Herff Jones, will be on campus to meet with Juniors about class rings and Seniors about cap and gown on Monday, October 3rd. Information packets will be sent home with students and available with counselors if your child misses the meeting. Herff Jones will be back on our campus to take orders on October 13th from 2-4 and November 4th from 11:30-3:30. They will be set up for your convenience in the foyer of the auditorium. Orders placed after these dates will need to go through their website or office. It is much easier to take care of this now rather than trying to figure it out later.

TSIA Testing

Any senior who wants to take the TSIA - Monterey will offer the TSIA 2.0 during the school day on Wednesday, October 12. Registration will close Friday, October 7th. For more information, please visit the MHS Testing page at or see Mrs. Burk in room 120.

Senior Pictures at Prestige

Seniors! Now is the time to make your appointment for SENIOR PICTURES at Prestige. These are the pictures you're able to purchase, but will also be used for the yearbook. If you're unable to go to the studio, there will be a last chance for photos on November 2nd for SENIORS only at Monterey. To make an appointment, call 806.687.2629.


Monterey will be offering the ASVAB to any interested 10th, 11th or 12th grade student on Tuesday, November 1st. The ASVAB is an interest inventory that helps to highlight preferences, goals, and possible career paths. Students that choose to take the test will also have the chance to have their scores interpreted after results are in. Students can opt to share their scores with the military, but that is not required. Feel free to visit with your counselor if you have any questions. You can sign up until October 25th on the counselor page of the MHS website. Click here for more info!
