The MTCHS Student Government is sponsoring our annual Holiday Basket Fundraiser.
Each year we create beautiful holiday meal baskets that are donated to hungry families in our community.
Last week we gave every first period class a signup sheet for food items and/or decorations for the basket. We're encouraging everyone who is able to bring in at least one item and contribute $1.00 to go towards buying a $20 gift card for each basket. The gift cards are intended to help the families in need purchase a turkey. Please bring your basket items by the morning of Friday, December 16th.
Teachers and staff members will vote on the best decorated basket, and the first period class with the winning basket will earn a Christmas cookie party on Tuesday, December 20th! The grade that brings in the most food items will earn 10 extra minutes of lunch on Tuesday, December 20th!

Food items for the baskets include Canned Sweet Potatoes/Yams, Canned Corn, Canned Green Beans, Canned Olives, Canned Fruit, Canned Cranberries, Chicken/Vegetable Stock, Cream of Mushroom/Onion Soup, Instant Potatoes, Stuffing Mix, Gravy Mix, Chocolate/Vanilla Pudding Mix, Graham Cracker Crust, Bisquick or similar for Biscuits, Marshmallows, Brown Sugar, Durkee’s Fried Onions, and Turkey Bake Bags

Parents or individuals who wish to donate money for the baskets may do so online at


School is cancelled today due to inclement weather. We hope you take the chance to relax, stay safe, read a good book, go out and build a snowman, shovel your neighbors walk, and/or enjoy a nice hot cup of cocoa!

Look who's currently on top of the rankings in Certiport’s Microsoft Office Specialist Championships in the state of Idaho! Our Juniors have not yet taken the Excel certification test, but Mrs. Heesch's Business 2 class is hoping they can come out on top of that as well and sweep all three categories at the end of the qualification period!
By taking this certification exam, these students may choose to be entered to compete at the 2023 Microsoft Office Specialist U.S. National Championship in Orlando, Florida. Certiport’s Microsoft Office Specialist Championships are one of the only championships endorsed by Microsoft and are among the largest IT competitions for students in the world. At the U.S. National Championship, competitors compete to win:
Microsoft Prizes, such as Xboxes, Surface Laptops, and more!
Title of Microsoft Office Specialist U.S. National Champion
All-expenses-paid trip to the 2023 Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship!

To earn an invitation to U.S. Nationals, students must complete the qualification period ranked first in the state.
Good luck, Dragons!

It's always fun to pull different groups together for projects! Mrs. Heesch's Business 101 class is developing food truck business plans and recently collaborated with Mr. Taylor's Graphic Design class. The Graphic Design students pitched designs and created logos for each food truck; these were the winners.

MTCHS National Honor Society members and friends were busy on Saturday, raking, piling, and bagging over 50 bags of leaves and putting the rest in the resident's compost bin as part of Rake up Boise! That's a lot of trees and a lot of leaves, but they look like they were having fun! 😁
