    Posted December 4th, 2018: Applerouth Tutoring:  Make the Most of PSAT Scores
    This week, counselors across the country get access to their students’ PSAT scores. As you know, PSAT score reports offer a wealth of information about your students’ testing strengths and opportunities for growth. We want to help your families make the most of these insights, so we’ve got some great resources that we hope they’ll take advantage of: All About PSAT, SAT, & ACT Webinar: On December 20th, when students get their scores back, we’re hosting a free webinar to help educators and families unpack scores and consider next steps. In light of PSAT results, program manager Natalie Murphree will help participants consider test choice, SAT and ACT timelines, effective prep methods, and more. 

    Posted December 4th, 2018: Parent Letter for Exam Exemption
    Dear Blue Devil Families:
    As we approach the closing of this semester, we begin preparation for final examinations.  Please allow us to provide you with information concerning our school operation during this important time of year.  Students will be given comprehensive final examinations covering the curriculum of each course in which they are involved this semester.  These examinations will be given according to the following schedule:

                                           EXAM SCHEDULE
    Date Exam Block Schedule
    Monday, December 17 1A & 2A Late Arrival – Tardy Bell – 11:20 AM
    Tuesday, December 18 1B & 2B Late Arrival – Tardy Bell – 11:20 AM
    Wednesday, December 19 3A & 4A Late Arrival – Tardy Bell – 11:20 AM
    Thursday, December 20 3B & 4B Late Arrival – Tardy Bell – 11:20 AM

        1st Exam 11:20- 12:55                                   2nd Exam 1:00- 2:30


                                         IMPORTANT DATES

    Monday, December 10 Exam Exemption forms turned in (signed by parent)
    December 21 through January 1 WINTER HOLIDAY – No School
    January 2, 2019 Teacher Professional Learning Day – No school for students
    January 3, 2019 Students return to school – AB Day

    Students may arrive at 10:45 and should report to the cafeteria for brunch served from 10:45 – 11:10 AM.  Students must be in class at 11:20 AM. If your child is dropped off as a car rider, please be aware that the front doors will not open until 10:45

    Parents are not permitted to check out a student during an exam block; therefore, students must remain in class until the end of the exam period. This minimizes classroom disruption during the final exam.

    All information pertaining to exam exemptions will be communicated through your child’s teachers and posted to the MHS homepage.

    We hope that scheduling semester exams over a four-day period will allow students more study time, less stress, and greater success on exams.  Thank you for your support during this critical time of the academic year.


    Keith L. Ball, Principal
