NHS Application Due Date Postponed: 

Due to the current school closure, the due date for NHS applications will be postponed to Trimester 1 of the 2020-2021 school year.  Feel free to work on your application at this time if you are able, but packets will not be collected until the new school year begins.  A specific due date will be communicated at the start of the new school year.  As always, feel free to email Ms. Bolin at abolin@powayusd.com with any questions.  

National Honor Society

National Honor Society is a nationally affiliated organization emphasizing scholastic achievement, exemplary personal character, leadership, and community service. NHS members are highly motivated and well-balanced students, who actively work with teachers and students at MCHS as tutors and peer role models. Members take the most rigorous academic classes offered at MCHS and participate in a variety of extracurricular activities, including commitments of regular volunteer work in our community.
