The Student Government Food Drive is wrapping up this Friday, April 30. Donations from the Junior class have really heated up! Great job, Class of 2022!
There's still time for a classic upset, though, keep sending in those food donations! Remember, no perishables, no glass, and no ramen! All donations will go to help local families in need.

STOR*, Student Government and National Honor Society are hosting a food drive during the month of April! We will be helping out local food banks and challenging the MTCHS Dragons while doing it!
Students will be working towards two different goals for this food drive. The first is a grade level prize: whichever grade brings in the most items 🥫 will win an ice cream party during lunch. 🍦 The second is a community ladder with two tiers. If the school hits 250 cans in total then the entire school gets a hat day. 🎩 At 450 cans the entire school gets 10 minutes extra lunch! ⏱
Students should not bring in Ramen or anything glass. The food bank cannot accept them at this time.
*STOR: Student Organizations; SkillsUSA, VEX Robotics & eSports

All Juniors will be taking the SAT on Tuesday, April 13. They will be need to be at the school by 7:20. They will be released from the test somewhere around 11:30 and will be able to leave the school at that time.
Please bring two No. 2 pencils and a good eraser. You can bring snacks and a water bottle for break times. We also recommend a good night's sleep and a healthy breakfast.
The SAT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. It is a multiple-choice, pencil-and-paper test created and administered by the College Board. The purpose is to measure a high school student's readiness for college, and provide colleges with one common data point that can be used to compare all applicants.

Eleven MTCHS students went to the Idaho Diaper Bank earlier this week; counting, sorting, wrapping, and stacking hundreds of baby diapers, getting them ready to distribute to families in our community who struggle to pay for this necessity. What a great cause!
Our students have been busy earning their Community Service Hours this year through volunteering at various places in their neighborhoods and communities. We aren't always fortunate enough to get pictures, but we're very proud of their efforts!
