Once again, MUHS is partnering with the House of Peace to serve hundreds of local families this Christmas through the Christmas Basket Project which runs Monday, Nov. 26, through Friday, Dec. 14. In order to serve the hundreds of families that will visit the House of Peace, we need the entire Marquette High community to contribute to the collection of Christmas baskets. MUHS homerooms, departments and individual MUHS employee and/or student families get involved each year. Homerooms and families can get involved in a number of ways:
