At MLCHS, we are continuing to focus our classroom instruction on moving students to mastery of standards: ensuring students possess the knowledge of the course standards and are able to demonstrate the skills of the course standards. This is our focus through the last day of school Thanks for your help in ensuring students are well prepared for school each day. It truly takes a village to raise a child; we appreciate your partnership in the education of your child!
