This week the students in the computer science classes are celebrating Computer Science Week.  Here is your fun fact for the day:  There is an expected 175,000 computer software engineering jobs expected to be added to the U.S. workforce by 2018.  If you have any questions about Computer Science or the classes offered here at MFHS, please see Mrs. Larson in Room 249.


Attention Sophomores:  please remember to bring money or gifts to your World History class to help the 5 children we are sponsoring from Riverside Elementary.  All donations are due by TOMORROW.  Check the posters in your history classroom to see what specific items are needed or bring in cash donations.


You can gift wrap a sweater.  You can fill a gift bag with holiday cookies.  One thing you can’t put in a box and place under the tree is the perfect gift – a lifesaving blood donation. 


When you donate blood, you give the perfect gift - another hug, another smile, another chance - to someone in need of blood.


Think outside the box this holiday season.  The perfect gift is available right here at MFHS…and it’s free!  Donate at the Healthcare Academy Blood Drive Thursday, December 20.  Sign up at lunch or see Ms. Tarcin in Room 126.


Give the perfect gift and help a family member, friend or someone you’ve never even met unwrap a lifetime of memories.

Attention Seniors--our class community service project is underway.  Make your contribution for needy families in your Econ and Government classes.  Our goal is to raise $800!  If we surpass that goal, the entire senior class will receive breakfast during an upcoming homeroom.  There is also an incentive for the econ or government class that raises the most money.  Help make this holiday season a better one for the children we are sponsoring.


Attention Seniors!  Next Monday is the last day to submit college applications to Student Services and request transcripts through Naviance prior to Winter Break.  If you have an application deadline of Jan. 1st, your requests must be made by Monday, December 17th.  Please see your school counselor if you have any questions.
