Please remember to consult the website calendar for a listing of school events.  A weekly calendar is also published through the Titan E-news.  If you do not receive the Titan E-news, please email Mrs. Shelby Hall, our Youth Services Center Coordinator, at Shelby.hall@shelby.kyschools.us to register to receive it.

At MLCHS, we continue to focus our classroom instruction on moving students to mastery of standards: ensuring students possess the knowledge of and are able to demonstrate the skills of the course standards. 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. We look forward to seeing you on campus in the near future at a school event.
