Final PTSA Meeting

Dear Mustang Families,

The final PTSA meeting of the year is set for Monday, May 15 at 6pm in the Media Center. At this meeting we will introduce the new leadership team and vote in the Executive Board.

Questions about Graduation? Wondering about finals? Mr. Martin will be with us. Please drop by and help us welcome the new team to MCHS PTSA.

 

Don’t Let This Be Our Last Meeting

 

Many of our board members are leaving because their sons and daughters are graduating. We’ve had fun as a team. We’ve helped champion programs for STEM and 4-C, as well as helped add additional AP courses. We have had one heck of a ride, but it’s time for our journey to end.

Now is the time for the next generation of parents to step forward and lead the way at improving their child’s education. Now more that ever, you are needed to help your child transition into their young adult lives that follow high school. There’s no better way to get involved than being part of the PTSA.

We cannot continue to run as an organization unless we have a President. We simply cannot run without one. We promise the job only takes a minimal amount of time and is a lot easier than you think. No one person actually leads our team. We too believe in the 4-C process and you will quickly find many new friends helping along the way.

So please consider becoming President of the PTSA and being  part of Middle Creek. Come enjoy one heck of a ride before your child’s high school journey ends.

Please contact Carman Webb at cgwebb@me.com.

Students Use the 4-C Grant to Upcycle Trash

Through the use of the 4-C grant that was funded by Wake County, Dr. Jones’s environmental sciences class took trash and upcycled it using the Earth/Environmental standard, “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.” The 4-C’s of learning refers to students demonstrating Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication, and Collaboration. Students also used the STEM Engineering Design process and worked in teams to re-purpose new objects.

Final Exam Schedules

 

final-exam

The final exam schedules for second semester have been posted. Any student wanting to leave early on any exam day will need to submit an early release form for each of their teachers on or before exam day signed by their parents. Also, This year, WCPSS will NOT run buses in the middle of the day during exams so students leaving early will need their own transportation. See all the rules below in the “Parent Exam Release Form”.

MCHS BBQ Staff Luncheon – May 16th

 

Hi- can you believe it? Tuesday, May 16th is the last MCHS staff luncheon for the school year featuring Danny’s Pork BBQ and fixins’ (cole slaw, hushpuppies/rolls, potato salad & banana pudding).

We still need some items and helpers for the BBQ event. If you think you can volunteer your time or some items, like plasticwear, drinks, etc, then please visit the signup link below.

Thank you so much for all your donations this year! The staff REALLY appreciates it and always says how “spoiled” they are by the MCHS families.

FYI….. We are still looking for someone to take over for me as the Hospitality Team Coordinator (as my son will be graduating). I can’t say enough good things about being involved with the Hospitality Team for the last 4 years. It’s one of the most satisfying positions on the PTSA because we get to interact directly with our children’s teachers and show our appreciation first-hand. PLEASE consider getting involved whether by leading or donating your time and/or talents to this position. It’s a great position to hold with a fellow parent or friend. Feel free to contact me for more info. 🙂

If you have any questions, please email MCHSHOSPITALITY@gmail.com.

Evening Classes for Adults

Have you ever wanted to take a course about something that interested you? Maybe art, photography, another language or honing your computer skills?
WCPSS Community Services offers adult evening classes for adults to learn everything from a new hobby to a new set of career skills.

Categories of our evening courses include Arts and Crafts, Communications, Languages, Career Skills, Construction, Cooking, Dance and Fitness, Gardening, Finance and more!
Courses are very reasonably priced. And, if you happen to be a WCPSS teacher, you could earn continuing education units (CEUs).
We invite you to check out the possibilities!

Next Year’s Team is Almost Complete

 

Next year’s leadership team is almost complete. We have a strong lineup of committee chairpersons ready to take charge of all the moving parts of our mission. We are excited to welcome new officers to the executive board and look forward to getting to know them better. The picture looks bright but please look closer. We must have a President and a Vice-President to ensure the continued success of the Academic Booster Club. Because most of our committee chairs are already in place, the President and Vice-President will work primarily to coordinate with MCHS administration and to organize the monthly meetings.

If you have been thinking about volunteering, now is the time. We look forward to hearing from you.
