MHS Olympics Gets Gold Medal Honors

The Sochi torch may burn bright for another few days, but the flame has been extinguished in the first-ever MHS Olympics. Still, the spirit created by the week-long PTA-sponsored event will live on both emotionally and physically for the students as they continue to embody the values set forth... and as they enjoy the rock wall purchased through a successful school-wide fundraiser!

 
Help Soles4Souls Program Continue to Thrive!

The Orange City School District's effort to provide "Soles4Souls" has already generated hundreds of pairs of shoes for children in need.  The effort will continue through the end of the month.  Please continue to donate!
