Freshmen Orientation

Welcome to the next level of your academic journey!

High school is much different than Middle School. You’re no longer chaperoned from class to class. You’re given greater responsibility in defining your academic journey. High school gives you the ability to explore many electives and be sure to check out all the extra curricular clubs Middle Creek has to offer. You’ll meet new friends with similar interest and learn exciting things without test or exams!.

Freshman Orientation is tomorrow, Wednesday, August 16th from 8-10 am.

Be sure bring your parents. You will:

  • receive your schedule
  • explore the grounds and find your rooms before first day if class
  • learn a few tricks from your upperclassmen tour guides
  • get your swag on! You can’t show up the first day of class without wearing some Mustang spirit wear! (hint – this is the reason to bring your parents!)

We promise to make you look less like a Freshman on your first day class.

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.

Teacher Appreciation “Happy Hour”

 

To show our appreciation for our teachers and staff at MCHS we will give them the simple gift of a moment to enjoy each other over a treat and a drink directly after school on Tuesday, May 2.

We are looking to serve homemade cookies, water and cokes.

Show your love by signing up below.

Cookies and drinks can be dropped off at 6020 Larboard Dr. Apex 27539 on Monday May 1 and Tuesday May 2 until noon.
