Seniors & Parents of Seniors......

Graduation is getting closer and most likely there are lots of questions and concerns about upcoming events, scholarships, college applications, etc.  Our Daily Bulletin will now feature a special section for the Senior Class of 2016 news, as well the "Counselor's Corner" page located under Navigation on our website.  

It is important that seniors and their parents check these areas often.  This is the best way to share important information that will hopefully make the remaining days as an MHS senior a bit easier!

Have you ordered your cap & gown?  If your senior is planning on participating in the senior graduation ceremony on May 27th, they must have a cap & gown to do so.  If you have any questions, please call the MHS office.

What is the A/B Block Schedule?

     The A/B Block modifies our current Block schedule to stretch the classes out over the course of an entire year. We appreciate the benefit of the longer class periods in terms of in depth-instruction; however, we were challenged with the students not being in core classes for an entire year. Through Common Core Training, as well as our WASC Accreditation Review it was recommended to find a solution. The A/B schedule addresses this. 

     The A/B Block schedule will retain our 85 minute class periods. Students will attend four classes on 'A' days and then four different classes on 'B' days. In the end, students will go to each class every other day, attending class three times every six days (ABABAB).  We piloted this schedule in a few classes this year with much success, and are very excited to implement it school wide for the 2015/16 school year.

Chris Smith: Valley fire sparks Middletown native’s interior design project
CHRIS SMITH
THE PRESS DEMOCRAT | April 20, 2016, 6:43PM

Samantha Millard-McEvoy wasn’t home last fall when the Valley fire incinerated a vast swath of southern Lake County.

She was off studying interior design at West Virginia University. But she came back to Middletown and she was horrified, and also inspired, by what she saw.

“A lot of my friends lost their homes and the town seriously looked like the apocalypse, everything scorched black and destroyed,” she said.

“I was driving around looking at the remains of all these houses and all you see is bent steel scattered around concrete foundations with brick chimneys still standing proudly in the center of what was very recently someone’s home.”

What Samantha saw ended her search for a design concept to develop and submit to a national competition.

The 21-year-old’s conceptual design, “Rebuilding Community,” won an Interior Design Educators Council regional award.

It envisions a new gathering space built of fire-resistant steel, concrete and brick, and incorporating material salvaged from the fire, either as construction components or repurposed into art.

The Middletown center would start out as a place where fire victims could come to engage with professional and student architects and designers on how to replace their lost homes or businesses with highly efficient, durable, beautiful new structures that if possible would retain remnants of those that were destroyed.

Samantha’s concept is just that, but it’s a good one. So, who will build it?
