MHS Principal's Update 5/8/19
Dear MHS Families and Students Grades 9-12,
Well we are heading down the home stretch! May is flying by with one exciting event after another. It started last week as we celebrated our seniors, the Class of 2019. Over 40 top seniors participated in our academic signing day, and all our seniors attended the senior awards program where they were recognized for outstanding achievements, academic excellence, and community service. The Class of 2019 is exceptional for sure. They will receive over 5 million dollars in scholarships and aid for college as a result of all their combine efforts! Senior week ended with senior banquet, where they reflected on superlatives and memorable moments from all the years they have been together in Madeira City Schools. It was a great week!
This week was staff appreciation week and we are so grateful for all the great food being provided all week long by the Madeira PTO and community! We certainly have a wonderful staff to celebrate and we feel so supported by this awesome community!
Senior Last Day and Exams
The last day of classes for seniors is Wednesday, May 15th. Any senior required to complete an exam will do so on Thursday, May 16th starting at 7:35am. All exams will be administered in the cafeteria under the supervision of a proctor, and counselors will coordinate exam administration for seniors needing to take three or more exams.
Exams for grades 9-11 are May 20th-23rd. On Monday, May 13th students will receive an exam form via English classes explaining the schedule and early release days. Students need to complete the form, get it signed by a parent, and returned it to common time teachers by Friday, May 17th. Students not reporting for an exam or study hall need to have their own transportation arranged. All buses will run at normal times and adjust to early dismissal times in the afternoon.
Underclass Awards Program
We have the honor of celebrating all the accomplishments of our students in grades 9-11 next Friday, May 17th during our Underclass Awards Program! Parents are invited to this program that will take place in the auditorium at 8:15am. It should conclude in approximately one hour.
If you have prescriptions or over-the-counter medications in the school clinic, please make arrangements to pick them up prior to the the last day of school. If you have any questions or wish to check to see if you have medications in the clinic, please call the high school at 513-891-8222 and ask to speak with Ms. Shields. Thank You!
Safety Training/Self Defense Class
Chris Nachtrab, parent and Madeira resident, will be offering a free safety training workshop to senior girls on Saturday, May 11 at 1pm in the MHS cafeteria. This free workshop will last approximately 1-1/2 hours.
