What a great start! Enrollment is up over 50 students from last year and includes 120 new faces to MHS. Everyone has been very patient and looked for opportunities to help the new students find their way around MHS. The students and teachers are all adjusting to a new routine and hopefully life at home is falling back into a school-home partnership as well.

With fall comes all kinds of activities for our students. The Lady Chiefs softball and soccer teams' seasons are fully underway and off to very successful starts. The football teams and cross country will also be soon underway.

Sports aren’t the only activities gearing up for the fall campaign. Clubs such as Interact, SADD and FCA will be holding organizational meetings soon to start planning their projects and programs for the new school year.

Students and teachers aren’t the only ones busy this time of year. The Parents' Club is already busy planning the annual gift wrap sale, Harvest Festival, and back-to-school open house. The Chiefs’ Club held their annual Fall Meet the Chiefs Tuesday and are well on their way planning their projects and activities to support our athletic program such as concession stand signups and “Cow Patty Bingo.”

As I said in my Annual Meeting address, look for ways to get involved. All of us who are parents, or have children involved in school activities, are already members of the Parents’ Club, Chiefs' Club, or any of the other support organizations. Our school and our children need us to be involved in the activities that support the school and its programs.

Thanks again for a great start. GO CHIEFS!!
