Thursday, December 12


Attention MIHS students. Are you on Santa's naughty or nice list? If you want to be on the nice list then get your ticket for student council's holiday movie day on Friday, December 20th. Tickets will be on sale Monday thru Wednesday next week during all three lunches. In order to purchase a ticket you must bring your school ID and a permission slip signed by your 4th block teacher so you can miss class on movie day. Green permission slips can be picked up from your tutorial teacher. For only $3.00 you get admission into the movie, a candy cane, a cookie, and you will be allowed to wear school appropriate pajamas the day of the movie. Seating is limited so only 250 tickets per lunch and will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Any questions check out the flyers around the school or ask a student council member.

Due to scheduling conflicts, McDowell Media Club will no longer be meeting on Thursdays. The club will still meet every Tuesday from 2:40 to 4 pm, but beginning today, Thursdays are cancelled. Occasionally work could be completed on Thursdays by appointment only. Check with Mrs. Weiss for availability.

The Republican Club will be meeting this Friday during tutorial in room 121 at the main High School. We will be discussing upcoming elections for state representative and state senate, and observing the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. All students are welcome to attend, and we encourage students with opposing viewpoints to join us.

Attention MIHS Students: This is a reminder to all students to turn in their PAR tickets to the front office as soon as possible. Remember, the holiday break is quickly approaching, so drawings for the gift baskets will be happening in several days. Be sure to give yourself an opportunity to gain an early Christmas gift by winning one! And remember to be Present, Accountable, and Respectful.
