Stop Bullying Week at MRHS:

  • Decorate Your Classroom Door Pink with judging to take place on Friday.
  • Pave it Pink is a “pay it forward” idea.  We will have pink t-shirt cutouts for teachers, students and staff to write positive “pay it forward” acts of kindness shown to others throughout the week.  The t-shirts will be hung on the wall in the hall to see if we can make a “clothes-line” or “highway” of t-shirts throughout the school starting from the front entry, down the main hall and upstairs and back again.  Each act of kindness no matter how big or how small will be put up on the walls.  Let’s see if MRHS can fill the halls with kindness next week! When you have pink shirts filled in please bring them to the library.

Athletic Department:

  • Anyone interested in playing badminton should sign up; the sheet is located in the Phys. Ed. hallway. Practices start Monday, March 4, after school.
