Every year, the Project Graduation Committee hosts a Fashion Show and Basket Raffle to raise funds to offset the costs of the All-Night Party thrown for the graduating seniors the night of Graduation. The All-Night Party is a safe, alcohol & drug free evening of fun.

The cost for each student’s participation in the All-Night Party is approximately $120, of which the students pay $10.  This celebration for the seniors would not be possible without the Fashion Show and Basket Raffle. 

We also ask for Class donations depending on what year your student is currently attending.  If you know of any corporations that would like to donate please visit this  link.  Help support this amazing project.

What is Colonial Closet?

The Colonial Closet at MHS opened in late 2015.  Organized and facilitated by the school, its purpose is to support the MHS students who are struggling economically. Some of these students are living on their own, working to pay their rent while going to school. All are in need of basic necessities like toiletries and simple food items.
