The Trojan Learning Center is held in the library after school!  This is a fabulous chance to get extra help on assignments and to have a quiet place to work.  MHS staff and WWU tutors will be on hand to assist students Monday - Thursday, 2:45pm - 4:45pm.  An activity bus is available at 5:00pm to take students home (see bus pass rules below).

SENIORS (2020)

(NEW) Presentation practice week:  ALL of your slides need to be presentation-ready by March 23.  Please schedule a practice session with your adviser in person that same week.  Please contact your adviser now to make an appointment.  A successful practice is required to participate in presentation day, which means your adviser may have you practice more than once.  Keep in mind that there is only one week between Spring Break and presentation day - do not procrastinate and put yourself in jeopardy.
