MCHS is on the rise with its academics as we are a few weeks into our second quarter. Students, teachers and other staff members have been working tirelessly to achieve high goals for each individual in high school. Selected students are being honored each month, and are given the titles "students of the month" in various subjects ranging from the art or music department, all the way to the english and math departments. Students in all different grade levels and classes are being honored for the extra work and dedication that they put into those certain areas.
While we see and acknowledge the students who are being honored for their achievements, and notice the amount of extra work they put towards those classes, we often don't see the amount of extra time and work those teachers and other staff does to help their students get to that point.
Athletes, coaches, and peers see how hard students work to be successful and achieve their goals, but sometimes what they don't see, are the ones who have made it possible to get that far.
Many staff members here at MCHS work the regular school hours, plus many more, to make sure that their students strive to be the best that they can be. Many of us don't see the extra work they put towards their classes, and other fields of work. Many of the staff members here come to school way before first period, they stay after school for many hours, and they even give up their lunch and planning periods just so they can help those students who need extra help, and to help everyone succeed.
Although we don't always see the extra work that teachers and all of the staff put into helping the students here at MCHS, it does not go unnoticed.
The extra help and work the staff members put towards helping all students comes in many different forms across the whole school. From something as simple as understanding a math lesson, all the way to getting an "A" on a test, they all want us students to be the best that we can be, and they do their best, and work their hardest to do so.
