This year, the MHS Student Council will be hosting a leadership conference for middle schoolers. This day will consist of workshops, snacks, and a good time all around. Members of Student Council will be running 10 different workshops, and students get to choose which to attend! The workshops address a variety of topics including how to transition to high school, steps to success, and learning how to make connections to those around you. Students interested in being involved in MHS Student Council in the future are encouraged to attend, as well as any student interested in developing leadership skills. Registration forms can be picked up at either attendance or the main office.
