Attention Sophomore parents: Tomorrow, February 8th, your son or daughter will be taking the Accuplacer test to determine their eligibility for Morenci High School's dual enrollment program. Morenci High School's dual enrollment program allows students to take college classes during the school day and receive credit for both high school and college credit. The following is a short video that describes the program in depth and the opportunities available to our students at Morenci High School. Please watch the video and if you have any further questions feel free to contact our Guidance Counselor Mr. Garcia at the high school. https://youtu.be/ERjI_IgXSfA
MUSD is excited to partner with Eastern Arizona College and Western New Mexico University. Representatives will highlight information about programs and opportunities for students. Representatives will also be available to discuss admission, scholarships, and FAFSA. If you would like specific help, please bring your tax documentation. Regardless of your child's age, we hope you can join us to win some great prizes and, more importantly, to learn about the excellent educational opportunities in our area.

Ms. Sarah is not new to MELC, but this is her first year as lead teacher in one of our 3 year old classrooms. She is engaging with her activities, caring to our students, and always ready to learn something new. We are lucky to have her on our staff and she is doing some amazing things with our little wildcats. Thank you! She was asked what does being a teacher mean to her. "To me being a teacher means to be someone who makes a positive impact on a child. Not only in their love for school and learning but to be kind to others and become independent. Encouraging them to explore and learn in a safe environment where they are free to be themselves. Being someone they look forward to seeing everyday and seeing them light up when they see you outside of school really does show what an influence you have in their lives. It really is rewarding in many ways." -Ms. Sarah
Ms. Jennie has been teaching at MELC for 10 years. She is the kindest human, phenomenal teacher, and has great work ethic. She has so much love for our little wildcats, thank you for sharing your passion. Being a teacher means... Being a warm hug and a big smile. Providing a safe place in a not so safe world. Making learning fun so children will become lifelong learners. Helping children to believe in themselves. Teaching children to be kind and to accept and respect others. Planting seeds that continue to grow beyond my classroom. Leaving a tiny imprint that remains even when I'm gone. -Ms. Jennie
