Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! As we move into the school year we want to welcome our students, families, and the community to participate in activities and become part of our school culture. Our mission, "Where learning is valued and excellence is the standard," is focused on the success of ALL students, and the support and participation of their families is encouraged.

Students are back in classes and have moved from summer camps to school activities. Our athletes in Cheer, Cross Country, Football, Golf, Soccer, Tennis and Volleyball are on the fields and courts and are working hard toward successful seasons. The Band and Color Guard are preparing for Settlers Days, and student groups like the Reading Club, Student Council, Freshmen Mentors and others are working to make this the best year yet. With the variety of activities and athletics that are available we urge students to become involved in our school; there is something that will hopefully appeal to everyone.

We are excited to unveil our Advisory program this year. The MCHS Advisory program aims to give every student a point person who becomes a contact for that studentís family and teachers during the studentís four years at MCHS, improve school climate by enhancing both student-to-student connectedness and student-to-staff connectedness, and finally, to provide a more personalized and supported educational experience.

I want to thank all the staff who worked throughout the summer to plan for the year, especially the maintenance staff that always does a great job preparing the building and grounds. This summer, the grounds crew worked around the seal coating of the parking lots and roadway repairs in getting everything looking great for the start of school. Between their efforts, the indoor summer cleaning crew, secretaries, IT and administration, we are off to a great start. The teachers are back to classroom activities and the bus drivers are back on the road. We are excited to see everyone active and ready to help every student strive for success in high school and future years. We are committed to establishing and maintaining a learning environment "Where learning is valued and excellence is the standard." Have a great school year!
