Methacton High School Home & School Association 2019-2020
Welcome to another exciting year at MHS! As parents of MHS students, YOU are the Home & School Association. We encourage you to stay informed by attending H&S meetings and signing up for Konstella. We also encourage you to support our no-frills fundraiser and all the activities that MHS has to offer, including the sporting events, theatre productions, music programs, art shows and other student-centered events such as the Film Festival, the “Mr. Methacton” competition and Mini-thon, to name a few.
H&S Meetings are held each month in the library and alternate between mornings and evenings. Please check the calendar on the back of this letter for dates and times. H&S meetings are the perfect time to find out what is happening at our school and dispel rumors. Look for updates with details on our website and in email reminder from Konstella.
Meetings feature reports from our Principal, Guidance Department, teachers and school board. The atmosphere is informal and conversation is encouraged. All are welcome! Please join us for our next meeting on February 6, 2019 at 9:15 a.m. in the MHS Library conference room. We hope to see you there!
If you've never been to a MHS H&S meeting, try one out!
Parents/guardians can stay informed by registering to receive emails and student morning announcements. MHS H&S works with the MHS administration to distribute the daily Warrior News announcements to the parents of MHS students. If you have the type of teenager who sometimes forgets to pass along information, we strongly suggest you subscribe to the Warrior News through Konstella. Click on tab on left for step-by-step instructions. Need help? Contact a Home & School officer or stop by the H&S table at Back-to-School Night for assistance.
The MHS H&S counts on the generous donations from all its families to carry out our programs every year. A suggested donation is $50.00 per child. Any amount is appreciated, but we could do SO much more if we exceed our fundraising goal. PLEASE SUPPORT H&S! Contributions are 100% tax deductable.
