Looking for a way to feel part of what is happening at MCHS? Would you like to get to know the leaders of our school? All you need to do is join the MCHS PTSA leadership team for 2017/18. It’s easy!

PTSA Executive Board positions work directly with teachers and administration on a variety of projects each year. From Freshman Orientation in August to Teacher Appreciation in May, our Board contributes to the events making our school the vibrant and engaged place it is.

MCHS PTSA Executive Board plans and implements the budget, voting on additional expenditures as needed. As a member of the executive board, you have a direct voice in setting our priorities as the Academic Booster Club of Middle Creek High. Our Executive Board positions are:

President
Vice-President(s)
Secretary
Treasurer

All we need from you is enthusiasm for student success and a willingness to serve. We are currently speaking to a few parents interested in joining the team and still considering which position best fits. As several of our past board members will be returning in different capacities, there will be plenty of support available to the new leaders. Please don’t wait for “somebody else” to take the lead. YOU are the one who can make the difference now.

Thank you for your help. For more information, please contact Carman Webb at cgwebb@me.com

Want to Be Part of a Big Art Project? Need Service Hours?

 

The Art Department is working with artist Carter Hubbard to design large art projects for Middle Creek High and we need your help. There are two projects to choose from. No art experience required.

 

dreamcatcherProject One: The Dream Catcher

We will be asking the school “What is your dream?” The vision of the project is to capture the modern interpretation of the Native American dream catcher.

We will create a doorway out of twine, feathers and beads. In the doorway will be a box where students can insert their dreams on pieces of paper. A wind tunnel will be attached to the doorway giving the visual of dreams flying around wildly, like they do in our minds.

 

 

 

lightbulb-ideaProject Two: The IDEA

The purpose of this project is to get all our students involved by asking the question “How can we inspire positive change to Middle Creek High School?” The vision is to recapture the beginnings of change in the concept of an idea.We use the popular understanding of the light-bulb as a symbol of ideas, then we expand upon it. We plan on creating a large light-bulb to hang in the foyer of the school. We will visually attach to it the ideas of the Middle Creek Community as they relate to positive change.

 

If you are interested, please text @MCHSArtout to 81010. A Remind will be given with working dates. Works dates will be posted on Remind or you can email Ms. Pollack at apollack@wcpss.net.
