Dear Parents/Guardians:

Several upcoming events are highlighted in our December newsletter, including a Winter Concert and our annual EC Nichols Basketball Tournament.


SAT prep class registration forms will be available in the Guidance Office when juniors return from the holiday break and are due by January 17th. Seating is limited. The course is $98 for seven sessions (including a Saturday practice test day) and is taught by MCHS instructors who are trained in SAT test prep strategies. This is a great way to prepare for the state-mandated SAT, which will be administered on April 9th during the school day.

Technology Updates

We will be upgrading our MCHS Website over the holiday break and will unveil our new look in January. Also, in an effort to simplify your payment processing, we are improving our system to allow you to add money to your lunch account, pay fees, etc., through your Parent Portal. You will only have one user name and password, and one site to make payments, view grades, homework assignments, attendance, etc. If you previously set up “Auto Replenish” in your student’s lunch account through the Webstore you will need to reset it through the new processor. Please stay tuned for instructions on this update in early January.

Wishing you and your family a safe and happy holiday season!

David N. Engelbrecht, Ed.S.
