MHS Annual Art Club Ornament Auction

Hello All!

It's that time of year again! The MHS Annual Art Club Ornament Auction will be held next week! Ornaments will be on display by the end of the school day Monday, December 14th, and the bidding period ends Thursday the 17th at NOON! This year we will only have a half day of bidding on Thursday, so if you need to come after school, please come on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday!

The students have been having fun painting the ornaments for you, and they have produced many beautiful ones! There is a limited number of ornaments this year, so please come as soon as you can to view the ornaments and place your bids! If you have the highest bid on any ornaments, we will do our best to get your ornaments delivered to you on Friday, or you will be welcome to come pick them up if you are not at MHS.

Remember that the ornaments make great gifts, and all funds help support Art Club activities and a spring trip each year!

Have a great day and come see the ornaments next week!
