✋ High 5 Friday at 5! 🙌 We thought it would be fun to wrap up the week by highlighting 5 great things our students have done over the past several days. This week, our high fives ✋ go out to: 1️⃣ Rhapsody N’ Rhythm, the McDonald County High School’s show choir program. They wrapped up a fantastic competition at the Webb City show choir showcase, taking home Best Ballad for Desperado, Best Male Vocalist (Jaxson Campbell), and won 4th in the overall competition! 🎵🎤🎼 2️⃣ Elly Wasson and her speech and debate coach Alexus Underwood. Elly qualified for state in the Lincoln Douglas debate competition as a Freshman! She also placed 5th in domestic extemporaneous speaking. (That’s a mouthful!) 🗣️ 🎤 3️⃣ The McDonald County Strength and Conditioning program had several weightlifters win state awards and set personal records, and Connor Yang set a new state record in the 119-pound weight category for deadlifting 425 pounds! (Can you say "Beast-mode!") 🏋️ 💪 4️⃣ It’s contest season for the McDonald County FFA and members have been busy traveling to different competitions and placing high in the ranks! From dairy cattle contests, creed speaking, ag sales, and much more, our kids are representing the county well! 🐄 🤠 5️⃣ MC Pom team member Kaylee Banta will continue her dancing career at Ottawa University in Ottawa, Ks. She was selected to be on the school’s dance team starting in the fall. Awesome! 🩰 🥰 So proud of all our students and their wonderful accomplishments! 👏 Just another way McDonald County Schools make a difference in every child, every day, whatever it takes! ❤️🖤 #High5at5 #FridayHigh5 #ShowChoir #Powerlifters #FFAContests #SpeechandDebate #DancingIntoTheFuture #McDonaldCountyR1 #WeAre1 #MCR1

🚀🌎🌔🌱👩🚀👨🚀👩🔬👨🔬 🤔 Ever wonder what life on Mars will look like in the future? 🚀🔮 🙋 Just ask the students in Mrs. Holz’s astronomy class at McDonald County High School. 👩🚀👨🚀 They created 3D models of Mars colonies that allow people to live on the red planet based on what they learned in class. And they absolutely nailed it! 👏 👩🔬👨🔬 Throughout this project, our students gained valuable skills in designing, modeling, and problem-solving. They learned about what's needed for life on Mars, including air, water, food, and shelter, and applied this to create their own unique models. 💪 🌟 We're blown away by the creativity and hard work put into these 3D models! Congratulations to Mrs. Holz's class on a job well done! 🎉 Just another way McDonald County Schools are making an out-of-this-world difference in every child, every day, whatever it takes! ❤️🖤 🚀🌎🌔🌱👩🚀👨🚀👩🔬👨🔬

Good afternoon Mustangs! Happy New Year! I hope you will take some time to reflect on the past semester and set some goals for this upcoming semester as well. Please remember a few things as we get ready to go back to school on Wednesday. First school attendance is important to your success. The F list and the at risk attendance list go hand in hand each week.It is very hard to learn and keep up on assignments when you are absent. If you miss more than 9 days in a semester then you are below the 90% standard that the state has set. Please try to make every effort to be at school when you are healthy. Second, tutoring is available M-Th after school. If you are struggling please plan to stay and get the extra help you need to help you be successful. Third, dress code. School is your job. Come dressed for success .Pajamas are not acceptable except on dress up days. If you need help finding acceptable clothing we have resources to help you. Just go see Mrs. Erica in room 303 and she will hook you up! I hope you have a great rest of your day and I am looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday when students return to school. ~ Mrs. Brewer
Good evening Mustangs! Going into this Thursday and Friday it looks like the weather could get serious. If you are in a situation where you have no heat and need resources please message the high school Facebook page and we will do our best to meet your need. We need to look out for each other so don't be afraid to reach out! Enjoy the rest of your evening!
If you need to pay for &/or pick up a pallet project you purchased you may do so at MCHS this week M-W between 7 AM and 1 PM. Come to the side door on the south side of the building and knock! Thank you for your support for our kids and their creativity!
Hey Mustangs! We are inviting you to the High School this week on March 1st or March 3rd for Spring Parent Contact Nights from 530-8PM. We will have dinner provided both nights. Chili and cinnamon rolls on the 1st and a sub sandwich bar on the 3rd. Come see your child's teachers and check on their academic progress this year. Ask questions about what classes they need for next year and get advice on what they should take. If you have a Senior, ask questions about graduation or about job placement or college admissions. For incoming Freshmen these are your enrollment nights. Anderson, Pineville and Rocky are on the 1st and SWC, Noel and White Rock are on the 3rd- both nights are in the PAC from 5:30-6:30. You can also tour the high school, eat dinner, meet the teachers, find out about clubs and activities and get comfortable with MCHS.
MCHS Announces Spring Parent Conference Nights! Freshman Enrollment is March 1st and 3rd. We would like to invite ALL parents to come by the building - chat with your child's teachers, eat dinner, and give us some feedback as we begin the last quarter of this school year.
