I want to give a HUGE shoutout to our MCHS Cheerleaders! A lot has been said about our football team (rightfully so) but these girls have been cheering them on every step of the way. They battled the heat, rain, and cold for every game this season. Just like the football players, they get no rest as they begin their basketball season tonight. They are at every game, all while practicing for their cheerleading competitions coming up in the next month. A BIG thank you to our amazing cheerleaders for all of the support you give our athletic teams! GO ACES!
Don’t miss out! Kick off your December Christmas festivities with a fun-filled evening of beautiful music, side-splitting comedy, and a delicious dinner. MCHS Choirs invites you to their annual Christmas Madrigal, A Cowboy In King Arthur’s Court. All the swords and armor in Camelot have rusted. It might be an evil enchantment. Or it might just be the weather in England. Merlin has no magic to fix things. Coincidentally, Rusty, a Texas cowboy, got plumb kicked into next week by a wild demon on four legs and wakes up in Camelot. It turns out this cowboy has a few tricks of his own to solve the problem. Enjoy the show with a menu of Wassail, Salad Greens, Smoked Pork Chops, Buttered Green Beans, Dinner Roll, Dessert, Tea and Lemonade. Get your tickets for a December 2nd or December 3rd showing here >> https://app.arts-people.com/index.php?ticketing=mchsm <<
