MCHS Honor Roll Breakfast this Tuesday – We need your help!

The school will post a list of students earning a place on the “A/B Honor Roll and the “All A Honor Roll.”  Students on the “All A Honor Roll” will receive a ticket to the Honor Roll Breakfast.

The Honor Roll breakfast will be held Tuesday November 14th. Students will enjoy Krispy Kreme doughnuts and assorted snacks.  There will be two shifts, with Juniors and Senior at the first breakfast and Freshmen and Sophomores at the second.  Each breakfast will conclude with a drawing of gift cards to places our kids love to go.

This event is a Mustang Tradition and it only happens because of the support of parents like you.  Every donation of time, snacks, or gift cards is very much appreciated.

Why we do what we do

whywedo

Each year the PTSA funds scholarships to the SAT Prep Class held here at MCHS. These are need-based scholarships provided to our students as part of our mission to make sure that each student gets his best chance for academic success. So far, we have awarded two scholarships for 2016/17. Here is what those two students had to say about receiving this scholarship:

“I come from a military home. Parents work hard for what I have. The extra money is not used for SATs, so this money will help out a lot.”

“I feel like this prep course will benefit me a lot. I like learning and I’m very motivated to do so. I think I’ll be able to find the right college with this course…I feel like this SAT course will let me reach my education goals.”

Scholarships to the SAT Prep Class are just part of how we put your membership dues and your donations to work in our school. Please Join. Volunteer. Donate. Make a difference today.

Welcome to the Team!

We would like to welcome you to the new school year and introduce you to the new PTSA 2017 – 2018 Team.

We also would like to welcome Tonya Brady to our leadership team as the new Hospitality Chairperson. The PTSA has always put a premium on recognizing the hard work of our teachers with fun hospitality events throughout the year. We look forward to continuing this tradition under Tonya’s direction.

While ALL of our committee chairs are filled, we are still in search of our President and Vice-President. The primary responsibility of these positions are organizational. Becoming the President of the PTSA does not mean you will never have another free moment. Our projects are led by our chairpersons and all of those positions are filled. What we need is a liaison between us and the school. The President sets the agenda for our monthly meetings and coordinates budget requests. Please consider volunteering a little of your time to supporting academic excellence at Middle Creek.

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.

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.

So many of us volunteer in ways big and small in our school and community. Please consider putting some of your volunteer power to work with MCHS PTSA.  Don’t wait for someone else to take the lead. We need you.

Leadership Positions for Students

Parent Teacher Student Association

As you know, MCHS PTSA is currently recruiting the next round of leaders for 2017/18. Did you know that STUDENTS can serve in some of our key positions? Dedicated, hard-working, responsible students committed to academic achievement should consider the possibilities of taking a leadership position with us. Think of the possibilities involved if a parent and student were to volunteer for our leadership team together…
MCHS PTSA offers real-life experience in the management of a volunteer organization. Fundraising, budgeting, event planning, volunteer recruitment and coordination are just some of the skills practiced as a chairperson or board member of MCHS PTSA.
Students seriously interested and able to commit to a full year of service for 2017/18 should contact Carman Webb at cgwebb@me.com
