2017-18: Week 25

A Solon Salute to Liz Swindell and Cindy Bubrouski for their help and leadership in sending some notes of supports from MHS to the students of Marjory Stoneman Dougless High School in Parkman, Florida.

A Solon Salute to the MHS Biology classes. This week the biology students were practicing DNA fingerprinting. Important conversations about racism, equity and justice do not compromise rigorous science education - it enhances it by creating context and relevance. Connections were made between forensic science, and the Innocence Project. (From Mr. Sabo)

A Solon Salute to our MHS Gymnastics Team. The team finished 3rd in the State Meet this weekend. What a great 2nd season for our young MHS gymnastics program! 

This week, MHS was the featured school of the week for Vermont Principal's Association. The VPA asked MHS to send out tweets using the hastag #vpaleads to document our week a bit. Here are several of the tweets that went out
