Back To School Fall Conference Night

MCHS invites all parents and guardians to attend a back to school open house on August 29th at 7:00 p.m. You will follow your student’s schedule and meet with each of their teachers to receive an overview regarding what to expect for the upcoming school year. »

Advisory Program

This year we will be implementing an advisory period during the school day. The MCHS Advisory Program aims to give every student and their parents/guardians a primary contact teacher during the student’s four years at MCHS. Benefits of the Advisory Program include:

• A personalized and supported educational experience

• Added time for students to organize, seek extra help, and confer with their advisory teacher about academics

• Time to provide social-emotional supports for students in the areas of relationship building, responsible decision-making, self-management, self-awareness, and social awareness

• Time for required, non-subject specific curriculums outside of academic class time

To facilitate the addition of this advisory period we are implementing a new bell schedule, with the first hour beginning at 7:55 a.m. Students enrolled in zero hour will begin at 7:00 a.m. or at 7:20 a.m. on shortened days. Bell schedules are detailed in the Parent and Student Handbook. »
