This summer, the entire Marquette High community will read Whirligig by Paul Fleischman in preparation for book discussion opportunities in fall 2017 and a visit from the author in early October. Parents are invited to read the book as opportunities for adult discussions will be provided as well. We ask that all students secure a copy of the book through their public library, local bookseller or through Amazon and read the book before the first day of school. An audiobook version of the book is available free of charge on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlrrXCkkRx0. If you have questions, contact Library Director Mrs. Ann O'hara at email@example.com.
MUHS and DSHA students participated a Civil Rights History/Service trip to Mississippi this past April. One of their service projects was to landscape the Emmett Till Museum in Glendora. This museum is the only viable business in this extremely impoverished town. Their gift shop is in need of items to sell and we are gathering all NEW or USED history books on Emmett Till, specifically, or Civil Rights as a general study. Any questions, contact Mr. Lese. All books can be delivered to Mr. Lese in Room 204.

At a recent neighborhood meeting hosted by MUHS, concerns were expressed by area homeowners regarding MUHS students rolling through stop signs and exceeding speed limits on streets near the high school. Stop signs at 34th and Clybourn and 39th and Michigan are specific problem intersections, as well as excessive speed on Michigan Street between 35nd and 39th Streets. Students should obey all traffic laws for their safety and the safety of our community. Neighbors and our security guards will report offenders (by license plate number or car description) to Security Director Dubis and Mr. Taylor for follow up. Thank you for helping us keep our community safe.
