The 2018-19 school year is just around the corner!

Hi!  Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!  This is going to be a GREAT year.  We are excited to reconnect with our former students and welcome our new students. Classes for our 1st through 12th grade students will begin Tuesday, August 14th.  This will be a shortened day, ending at 1:00pm.  Our Preschool and Kindergarten classes will begin Monday, August 20th.  Teachers start their year Tuesday, August 7th.

This year will hold some new adventures for our students.  We will be implementing Career Cruising, a career and planning program for students Kindergarten through Seniors.  The program will help our students "create a successful future through self-knowledge, exploration, and planning."  You can learn more about Career Cruising by visiting their website at careercruising.com.  We are also adding a MJH cross country team to our schedule.  This will be a great addition to our athletic program.  

USD 226 welcomes Tiffany Ziebart and Chateece Rickard to our team.  Tiffany will teach Career and Technical Education Business classes at MHS, assist with career development, as well be our MJH assistant basketball coach. Chateece is making her return to USD 226 as our Special Education teacher at MHS, and we are excited to have her back.  Leann Krier will begin her second year at MHS in a new room with a new subject.  She will be our freshmen and sophomore level math teacher.  Linda Mendenhall, formerly one of our 3rd grade teachers, will be relocating to first grade this year.  Amber Zimmerman has been a familiar face in our district for several years.  This year she will serve as our Social, Emotional, and Character Development Coordinator.  She will continue to work two days a week as a school psychologist for SKACD.  The other three days, Amber will work with students and teachers at MES/MJH as well as throughout our district.

Kindergarten through 12th grade enrollment begins Friday, August 3rd.  We have set a variety of times for enrollment, hoping to accommodate most everyone's busy schedule.  Please see the added attachment or our district Facebook page for more details.  Enrollment Information
