Grand Opening: Mary’s Mini Mart
Welcome to our new school store: Mary’s Mini Mart! Students wanted to be able to buy snacks, drinks and spirit wear before and after school as well as lunch. We decided to move our school store to a more convenient location. In the process of moving the school store, we were able to redecorate and stock up on new spirit wear, and accessories! Our store hours are Monday through Friday, 7:00 to 7:35 am, Lunch, and 2:40 to 3:30 pm.
Choir Sings on the Grand Stage!
On December X, 2018, the MHC Academy Choir performed Christmas carols before a full house at Radio City Music Hall. Music Director, Lucia Cardona led the choir before a full house that included students and parents who then stayed to watch the Christmas Spectacular. The choir was chosen from a pool of hundreds of applicants to perform after submitting a video for consideration back in September 2018. Congratulations to the choir for a job well done!
