Attention parents and guardians of 7th & 8th graders! We are excited about the upcoming 2018 Washington DC trip and to begin the planning process for our 2019 trip! Students enjoy this experience at the end of their 8th grade year. This trip is optional, but most students attend. Please join us for one of three informational meetings on Wednesday, September 27th at 7:45 am, 2:30pm, or 7:00pm. Meetings are only 30 minutes and will give more information about the trip including logistics, dates, cost, FAQs, and more! This is meant to be an inclusive 8th grade class trip so full or partial scholarships are available for families with financial need. Interested in a sneak peek into previous trips? Check out my Twitter (you don’t need to have Twitter to see it – www.twitter.com and search @MJHSConnaughton.) We hope to see you on September 27th to learn more!
The high school students dress in theme for each football game and they would like to invite all of you to join them this Thursday (9/27) sporting the student spirt theme - country.

Wave 'em or wear 'em, but join the high school "in country" at the Pow Wow and game at Indian Hill. Go Warriors!
