Registration Information for August 2018:

· All 11th &12th graders will register at MVHS on Thursday, August 16 from 8:30-11:30 am and then 12:30-3:00 pm. 

· It will be a similar schedule on Friday, August 17 with 9th & 10th graders registering from 8:30-11:30 am and then from 12:30-3:00 pm.

· Students who miss their registration day can come in Monday, August 20 during the same times to register for classes and pay fees.

· There will be an orientation for all 9th graders and new students the evening of Monday, August 20 at 6:00 pm in the MVHS auditorium.

· ​Students and parents need to be ready to pay a $20 registration fee as well as any fees for specific classes or outstanding fines at this time. 

· New and freshman students also have a $20 book deposit fee.

· Student schedules may change between now and the fall as we work to balance class sizes.  If students get on PowerSchool their schedule may still change before school starts. 

· Due to recent legislative changes regarding fractional enrollment and accounting of students, all students are only allowed one release period as an MVHS student, this includes seniors.  Understand that we will require all students to have a full schedule unless they qualify for the single release time. 

· Incoming senior students who were not proficient on the ACT in Math must take a fourth year of math their senior year. Students must have a 20 on the Math subtest of the ACT to opt out of math as a senior.

· In August, parents will be receiving an email with a link to the PowerSchool Parent Portal where they can update and revise student information online instead of on paper.  We know that this will improve our registration process and help us keep information more up-to-date. Be on the lookout for that email in August to help with your student’s registration.

We would also like to thank all the parents, students, and staff of this great community for the better then excellent graduation rate posted by the class of 2017.  That group of students had the highest district graduation rate in the state of Wyoming with a graduation rate of 98.3%.  This is quite an honor and one that truly benefits our students and the community.  It is also a team effort from everyone associated with our schools to keep students engaged and wanting to graduate.  Congratulations and great job. 

During the 2017 Legislative session, changes were signed into law related to high school students taking college level coursework and how that coursework would be calculated into students’ Hathaway GPA.  Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year all districts are required to use a weighted Hathaway GPA for all +1000 level and above dual and concurrent courses.  A student receiving an A in a +1000 level college course will receive a 5.0 for their Hathaway GPA for that course; A B in a +1000 level course will count as a 4.0 for that course, and so on.  This weighted GPA will be used to determine a student’s Hathaway scholarship eligibility only, and will NOT be used to determine valedictorian or salutatorian status, or other end of year honors, including class rank. 

This year, we will again be using a Remind account for MVHS Students and Parents.  If you text @cdkbc to the number 81010, you will get important messages from MVHS regarding important events.  I promise I will not be overloading your text message in box.  I wanted this to be a chance for me to communicate with parents if we should ever have a late start due to inclement weather, or to remind parents about special events at MVHS.  This will not be a "daily" Remind.  Be sure to follow MVHS on Twitter; just bang the link below.

Thanks for having your child be a part of what we are doing here at MVHS.  I am excited looking forward to our incoming students for the 2017-2018 school year as we continue on our path to be Second to None.
