Congratulations to MPHS Student of the Week, Ella Titus! Ella was nominated by Mrs. Seward, "She works as the TA in the Culinary Foundations class and then is a student in Culinary II. Last week the Culinary II class ran late and left the lab in a less than pristine state. She came in on Friday and totally cleaned the lab so it would be ready for an event being hosted there over the weekend. This was over and above what was expected, but it was SO appreciated! Ella is a wonderful support to the Culinary Foundations students and a strong leader in the Culinary II class." Great work, Ella!

He has taken lots of culinary classes, so he is knowledgeable and his leadership is very much appreciated! Anthony has early release and offers to stay at the end after our 3rd block class to help with the last parts of clean up every day. He always asks if there is more that he can help with." Great work, Anthony!

Congratulations to MPHS Student of the Week, Lukin Rediger! Mrs. Sieren nominated Lukin, "Lukin was a great student to have in physics last semester as he always brought a positive attitude to class and encouraged others during our physics design challenges. Sometimes when the class content was difficult or if his designs didn't work out like he planned, Lukin never let that get him down. Instead, he always used it as motivation to keep trying and continued to push himself as a student!" Great work, Lukin!
