MTHS 2017 Homecoming is Raising Money for St. Jude!

Students, Staff and the Metamora Community are all helping MTHS raise money throughout Homecoming week.  Here are ways you can help us reach our goals:

  • Dress up for St. Jude during Spirit Week — a small donation will be made by the Metamora Area Business Association for each student that dresses up that day!
  • Pie-in-the-Face Tickets — Tickets will be sold in the morning and at lunch throughout homecoming week, so buy your ticket and watch your favorite teacher/staff member get lathered in pie!
  • Purchase a Homecoming T-Shirt — Each class has a designated different color, so help your class win and wear your shirt on Friday during Spirit Week.  A portion of each t-shirt sold will go to St. Jude.
  • Make a Direct Donation — Monetary donations for St. Jude will be accepted all week!

MTHS Supports St. Jude by Shaving Heads!
