Happenings at East Grand schools

The Junior River Trip 1 got off the river last week. Junior River Trip 2 left Thursday for their journey.

Over 80 MPHS students will be taking 150 Advanced Placement exams during the next few weeks. That means over 20% of MPHS students will be sitting for and taking AP exams. Please congratulate any students that you know taking an exam, it really is a reflection of their hard work and academic achievement. For more information about AP please check out: https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/exploreap/the-ap-experience or contact Ben Polonowski at MPHS.

Please attend the community program: “Cyber bullying/Social Media” in the MPHS library Wednesday, May 8 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Dinner is provided. RSVP by calling 887-2104.

MPHS will be hosting an ELL family night on May 9 at 6 p.m. All are welcome to attend.

The counselors from MPHS and West Grand HS recently brought 40 students to Colorado School of Mines and Red Rocks Community College for tours and information sessions. The students also enjoyed lunch in the School of Mines student union. Thank you to Grand County Higher Ed for supporting post-secondary opportunities for our students and community members.

The Colorado Department of Higher Education declared May 1 as Decision Day, in order to honor students who have decided to continue their education pathway after high school. To celebrate, MPHS students and staff wore their favorite gear from colleges, universities, and military branches.

EGMS eighth grade boys and eighth grade girls track teams placed first at the Bear Creek Championships on Saturday. Seventh grade boys and girls teams took third; 22 teams participated.

MPHS was recognized by the CDE as one of 52 schools in Colorado that reached the target goal of increased FAFSA completion. This means more students will have access to financial aid, scholarships, grants, and work-study programs.
