Update from MHS Excerpt from Principals Message in MHS June 2016 Newsletter The 2016-2017 school year will see the completion of the renovation and the re-occupation of the old school. It has been receiving a significant facelift and will house some state-of-the-art Practical and Applied Arts learning areas. We hope to be back into the IA and Home Ec. areas in September. Additionally, we are very excited to see the development of our playing field take shape. We are the incredibly fortunate beneficiaries of the generosity of MHS parent, Lyle Wilson, for the enormous amount of work that has gone into the project so far. Hundreds of truckloads of fill and topsoil and countless hours of grading have brought us to the point you see today. And it is not done yet. We are working with a local landscaper to install irrigation and will be reaching out to the community as other parts of the project evolve and take shape. This playing field will be the first field developed by and for the school. We look forward to seeing generations of students and community members enjoy and make use of it.
