A Solon Salute to the MHS Boosters. The Boosters provided a healthy and fun welcome back to school with their annual Smoothie breakfast. Thank you all so much for your time and positive support of our students and staff!  

A Solon Salute to the students who helped out at Freshmen Orientation on Wednesday.
