    Hello,

          PowerSchool will close on January 20th at 3:00 pm and will not reopen until February 9th.  If you have any concerns about grades, please do not hesitate to email your child’s teachers.  Midterms will begin next Monday, January 23rd. Students will take two exams per day and use the remaining periods as study periods. If a student is absent, he or she should talk to the teacher in order to complete the make-up exam in a timely fashion.

        

    Please Read This Important Message From Our Relay for Life Advisors:

    MHS/APA/AAHS will host the Annual Relay for Life on March 24-25, 2017 (7pm - 7am).  This year we have over 90 teams on campus with close to 1000 participants.
