Dear MCHS Parents/Guardians:

Thank you to all the parents who completed the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. 

If you have not yet returned your signed form to opt-in to the Student Search Service, please sign and give it to your student for immediate delivery to their advisory teacher. We must have parental consent in order for students to opt in to the Student Search Service, which shares students’ information with participating organizations, connecting students with colleges and scholarship opportunities. Junior students who have not yet signed up for the SAT Test Prep Course must do so by Friday, January 31st. Forms are available in the Guidance Office. Please keep in mind that the test prep course includes a practice test with writing prompt. This will be your final opportunity to take a practice test prior to taking the SAT in April, as we are no longer administering a practice SAT during the school day in February.

February brings several upcoming events to plan for, many of which are included in our February Newsletter.

February 6 - Mandatory Spring Sports Meeting

February 12 - First SAT Test Prep Class

February 17 - President’s Day - No School

February 19 - Class of 2024 Orientation

On February 19th you will receive an email regarding Online Registration for the 2020-2021 school year. If you have an incoming freshman in your household, you must complete this by February 26th. All other households must complete Online Registration by March 20th.

If we do not use any emergency days this year, semester final exams will be administered on May 20th and 21st. Graduation is scheduled for May 31st.
