School Improvement Ideas – Link Added

After receiving School Improvement memos from Mrs. James’ keyboarding classes, the administration was impressed with some of the feedback from students.  We have created a link under the “Students” tab on the school website that allows students to enter suggestions for improvements throughout the year.  There is not a guaranteed timeline to get back to students on these ideas, but know that the administration will look through them and reflect on the pros and cons of each.

Thank you for taking the time to be solution-focused and help take our school from good to great!

The College Financial Aid Process

Recently the Guidance Department hosted a presentation on The Financial Aid Process.  A representative from the Illinois Student Assistance Commission shared valuable information to students and parents who will soon be or are attending college.  The presentation covered the types of financial aid, sources of financial aid, college loan programs (subsidized vs unsubsidized),  FAFSA and much more.  To view the presentation please click the following link: The Financial Aid Process

Guidance Department on Twitter!

MTHS is excited to announce that the Guidance Department has created a Twitter account.  The purpose is to keep followers up-to-date on events such as:  financial aid nights, college visits, testing dates, scholarship opportunities, etc.  Please follow us on Twitter at @mthscounseling to stay in-the-know!  If you have any questions, please contact Jeaneen Bohanan in the Guidance Office.

ALiCE Protocol – Safety Procedure

MTHS has adopted the ALiCE protocol in case an armed intruder gains access to the building.  The acronym ALiCE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate. No longer will we simply ask individuals to lock doors and huddle in classrooms.  The procedure gives teachers the freedom to take actions they believe will increase the safety of students, including evacuating the building or staying in the room and barricading the door.  Our teachers have been trained on the procedures.  Our ultimate goal is to increase the safety of everyone in the MTHS community.  The protocol is now posted on the website under Parents/Community – ALiCE Info – ALiCE Protocol for your reference.  Please contact Mr. Hodel, Assistant Principal if you have any questions regarding this safety protocol at 309-367-4151 x 530.
