Parents and students,
Welcome back for what I hope was a restful, relaxing, and rejuvenating winter break. The second semester often moves extremely fast and we want students and parents to make sure that everyone is keeping the pace. Graduation is just around the corner for our senior class and it is important to review their current progress to ensure that they will graduate on time. The administration and counseling staff will continue our efforts to audit student transcripts to encourage students to reach the finish line.
In addition to making sure the senior class stays on track we will continue to provide reminders to all of the student body regarding school and classroom expectations. Tardy sweeps and dress code checks will begin with the new semester. Please remind your students about the importance of adhering to school expectations and rules, especially being to school and class on time. In relation to the school dress code there are some proposed changes coming for next year. No, we are not doing away with dress code, however the uniform may become more student friendly with some changes to colors and allowable clothing…more information will be forthcoming from the MHS Student Council.
It has been a challenging year thus far with all of the new testing requirements imposed on us by the state Public Education Department, but your students and our teachers have made their best efforts and weathered the storm well. Please note that assessment has been a hot topic at all of the district meetings that I have attended and the Superintendent is planning on making some meaningful changes for the 2014-15 school year. There is hope!
My thanks to everyone, students, parents, teachers, and staff for making the first semester as good as it could be under the circumstances. I look forward to continuous improvement at MHS and the opportunity to celebrate our success!
John L Overheim, II
