10. Attention all Visual Artists and Writers:
MHS is sponsoring a new art & writing competition called the "MHS Diverse Voices Visual and Writing Arts Contest". We know from what we have learned in history, science, literature and the arts that some voices and ideas have gone underrepresented. We want to recognize diversity and the voices who speak for inclusion. Although this contest takes place this month during February, which is Black History Month, students are encouraged to think about all the ways in which we can bring inclusion and justice to voices and people who are often ignored or treated unfairly. Please see your teacher or the desk in the front office for contest details.
Deadline to submit your Visual Arts entry or your Writing entry is February 28.

The following was submitted by our Librarian, Emily Colpi:
Pearl Primus was one of the premier dancers and choreographers of the 20th century. An African American, Primus broke boundaries by changing the definition of what classical dance could be by using African American experiences, literature and music to inspire her choreography. Once asked why she danced, Primus explained: “Why do I dance? Dance is my medicine. It’s the scream which eases for a while the terrible frustration common to all human beings who because of race, creed, or color, are ‘invisible’. Dance is the fist with which I fight the sickening ignorance of prejudice.” Therefore, today, I ask you, how might you ease the frustration of being invisible or fight the ignorance of prejudice?

 

11. Any athlete playing a spring sport must remember to register for the sport on Final Forms. Please make sure all parent and all student electronic signatures are completed, and that you have a current physical on file.
