The course selection process will begin soon for freshmen, sophomores and juniors. Principal Jeff Monday and Asst. Principal for Academics Fran Maloney invite parents/guardians to attend an optional coffee conversation 7:40 a.m. - 8:40 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 16, or Wednesday, Feb. 21, in Room 127 to discuss MUHS academics. Parents who would like to participate in one of these conversations should register online. Questions? Contact Katie Hess at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Beginning Feb. 15, students will be able to log in to their PowerSchool accounts, complete their course selection and print a copy of the completed selections. Since this is a collaborative conversation between students, parents, teachers and advisors, a parent must sign the printout. Students will turn in the signed printout to their advisors during a special advising session on Monday, Feb. 26. Students and parents are reminded to select courses carefully, balancing commitments inside and outside of school. More information is available on the website under Academic Courses.

All students who drive to school are strongly encouraged to park their cars in one of the two student parking lots rather than the street when space is available. If students do park on the street, they must be aware of the winter parking regulations that went into effect Dec. 1. Signs are posted that restrict parking on some streets during winter months.

Students will be ticketed by the City of Milwaukee if they are in violation.
