Senior Announcements

Graduation is right around the corner! Here are a few end-of-year reminders:

•May 1 is the universal deadline to let schools know whether you are accepting their offer of admission or not. This is not a postmarked deadline.

•Turn in any scholarship letters that you have received by April 28 to be recognized in the graduation program.

•Turn in your final transcript request, if the college needs your final grades. If you are a scholarship athlete, you also need to send your final grades to the NCAA Clearinghouse.  You can do this now and we will hold your request until final grades are posted.

•Males 18 years of age must register with Selective Service. Go to for more information. It’s the law!

•Be sure to turn in your health clearance information (TB test and/or MMR shot record) to the school you will be attending. You will not be able to register for your classes until this is complete.

•Don’t forget to thank the teachers and counselors who helped you with your college/scholarship recommendations and mid-year reports.

•Still undecided about what to do after graduation? See C&CC ASAP!


ACT test day on Feb. 28 was a success! We tested close to 600 Juniors on the ACT Plus Writing. MHS will not be offering make up testing for absent students. ACT will mail the student’s score report to their home, three to eight weeks after testing. A big THANK YOU goes out to all who helped to make this test administration successful.

Juniors Announcements

Reminders: distribute/collect student evaluation sheets, update your resume, take at least one SAT or ACT test, make an appointment with your counselor, request for letters of recommendation (if applicable) and research your schools.
