Warrior News

A Weekly Newsletter for Warrior Families and Students

February 26, 2021

Greetings Warrior Families and Friends,

I apologize in advance for bragging, but we really have AMAZING students! Seriously, each week I am inspired and moved by the incredible things they accomplish and the learning they demonstrate. This success occurs in many different areas and in so many different ways. For example, Anoushka Prasad was recently selected as the recipient of the prestigious Kohl Student Excellence Scholarship. This prestigious award recognizes students who have excelled in student leadership, community service, and academic excellence. To say this epitomizes Anoushka is an understatement. Announshka is a multiple sport athlete, involved in multiple clubs, maintains an outstanding GPA, and has led some powerful community service work. In every way she exemplifies what it means to be a Warrior, and it is incredibly exciting that she will be receiving this honor.


Please know that this is just one of many students here at MHS who strives every day to make our world a better place. Please continue to check out our celebrations below for more great accomplishments from our Warriors. If you know one of these Warriors, please send them a message and share your pride in what they are doing. The great work of our students is a reflection of our awesome families and the great community we are a part of. Together, we are all 1Warrior!


Thank you so much for your support and for being a proud member of the Warrior Nation.


Have an awesome weekend and GO WARRIORS!

The National Youth Risk Behavior Survey shared that 32% highschool students across America utilize an electronic vaping device with some consistency. This survey also noted that 50.1% of students surveyed had at least tried vaping once. Please continue to have conversations with your child about the risks associated with this behavior. The CDC website has many helpful resources and can be found at this link.

Update: Classic 8 Winter Home and Away Sport Contests

Our schools continue to be open and our curricular co-curricular activities are operational under our local health department guidelines. However, it is important to draw our families' attention to an overriding principle. Although we love to see our whole community at each of our district's events; during this unprecedented time, we are asking our families to operate under a singular school community and singular family mindset when attending events. Essentially, keeping each school's events to just that school's clientele and only the families with active participants or performers in the event.

Update: Classic 8 Winter Home and Away Sport Contests

Beginning January 7, 2021, the Classic 8 has issued a revision to the Winter Sport Spectator Guidelines.

Home spectators remain at 4 immediate family members per participating athlete. NEW: Visiting spectators are limited to 2 immediate family members per visiting participating athlete.

Still in effect:

Admission to all Classic 8 contests are not open to the general public, students, and staff.

An appropriate mask/face covering, as directed by Gov. Evers, must be worn at all times.


For away contests, please consult our Activities website, 1Warrior.org, or the opponent's home website for streaming links.

We recognize that many of our students' support systems are their family members and it means a great deal to our students to have their closest advocates in attendance supporting their athletic, musical, and leadership endeavors. We are excited to see our students in their winter season performances, competitions, and school community-building events!
