Additionally, AP teachers will attend the event so this will give parents and students the chance to talk one-on-one with AP teachers about curriculum, class expectations, the AP test, and other course information. Even if your son or daughter has already taken an AP course, this is a good opportunity for you to plan which course(s) your child will take during following years.  Parents have found this to be a very beneficial event to attend – we hope to see many of your next Tuesday night!

    It is HIGHLY suggested to purchase tickets through MHS. The main reason being is the process to get a ticket at the US Cellular Center isn’t easy (especially if it is cold). The spectators would have to park (in the ramp) and then walk outside to the front entrance to the box office, and then walk back up to enter. It will save you time/effort to purchase from MHS.
