com to be added to an email group for info instead. Our monthly meeting will take place on the 3rd Monday of each month in Mrs. Nordin's classroom at MHHS - room 5 (thru main office doors and first hallway on the left).
This program takes place Monday - Thursday, from 3:00-4:00 PM in Mr. McLean’s classroom (Room 31). Mr. McLean and Mr. Grohs continue to help students in math but are also always willing to try and help students with other subjects. Mrs. Campbell-Mazzaferri, one of our new math teachers will be present for much of this second semester as well. As always, students need to arrange their own transportation. This is a great resource for those wishing to improve their grades.
