This weekend, Ms. Powell's Economics Class placed second in the Chautauqua Assembly Student Museum Competition. The class' exhibit showcased the difference between board games and electronic games: half 1950s, half modern. They researched, assembled and presented the board game vs electronic game topic and thoroughly enjoyed it!

We thank all those who were generous enough to donate furniture and decorations to our presentation. We also want to thank those who voted for our exhibit throughout the weekend.

MHS Celebrates Literacy Week, Florida!
Submitted by Heather Simmons

At MHS, we know that “Reading Changes the World!” Students started the week off with a door decorating contest. Each classroom read a book, learned a lesson from the book, and determined why that lesson is important in life! Then, they decorated their classroom door based on their book and the lesson they learned. The doors looked amazing, and we had 100% participation! 

 Students were challenged next to read 1 MILLION words on Tuesday. They devoured fiction and informational texts, took AR tests, and ended up the day reading 1,038,565 words!

 On Friday, students participated in our annual Book Swap where they bring in old books from home and swap for “new” books to take home and read. Students loved picking out their “new” books, and I overheard a few saying they can’t wait to read them when they get home! It was definitely a successful week for literacy at MHS!
