Honor Roll Breakfast

honorrollOn Thursday, November 21 your PTSA will host the first Honor Roll Breakfast of the year. This event celebrates the academic achievements of our hardworking students. It takes determination and dedication to earn a place on the Honor Roll and the PTSA wants to give these students the recognition they deserve. This quarter we are proud to announce that 1195 students have earned the distinction of Honor Roll Student. Way to go, Mustangs!

 In special recognition of their achievement, Jersey Mike’s at McCuller’s Crossing is offering a free regular sub to our MCHS Honor Roll Students. Simply present a current Honor Roll Certificate to claim the sandwich. Those certificates will be distributed by the school next week. Thank you, Jersey Mike’s!

Be an Elf – Helping Families in Need

elf10It’s time to think about chestnuts roasting on a crackling fire, stockings hanging from the mantle, a tree blinking with lights, and  pile of presents for the children to open.

The Student Services Department is already receiving requests for Help for the Holidays. We ask that you help us help those less fortunate members of our family.  We will be collecting gift cards (local grocery stores, Wal-Mart, Target, etc) to distribute to families. We will be collecting cards until December 6th.  No money, please. Only gift cards. All amounts are welcome.

If you are aware of a family in need, please let a counselor know. If you have any questions, please contact Tammy Rhyebutler at trhyebutler@wcpss.net.

NC College Application Week
