Mustang Message 11/30/20

Dear MJHS Parents and Students -

MJHS Annual Charitable Fundraiser Begins Today!

Giving is not just about making a donation, it’s about making a difference. Our annual school fundraiser started today and will run through December 11th. Bring donations to your first period class - there will be drawings for awesome prizes as you donate! Fundraiser proceeds will go to Sub for Santa (buying gifts for those who can’t afford Christmas) and creating gift baskets for our first responders, nurses and doctors. Last year was very successful and we want to do even better this year - Watch the donation meter in the commons area for daily progress!

PLEASE READ - Important information for Parent Teacher Conferences 

Due to current COVID-19 conditions - Parent/Teacher conferences scheduled for this Thursday, December 3rd, will be conducted by Zoom appointment ONLY. Please be advised that teachers will not be available for walk-in visits; also please note that not all, or even most parents will need to schedule an appointment. We are encouraging that ONLY those parents with concerns in a specific class, set up Zoom appointments with specific teachers. Teachers will be available from 3:30 - 8:00 p.m. to hold these conferences and appointments will be for approx. 10 minutes or less. This is an attempt to greatly reduce face to face traffic during P/T Conferences. If you feel that you do need to visit with a teacher that evening, please reach out to them directly through email to make the Zoom appointment. All teacher emails can be found on the school faculty webpage -
