Hurricane Harvey 2017

We hope this email finds you and your family safe and secure in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. We know many families across the Texas coast have suffered substantially, including some of our very own. It has been both heartbreaking and heartwarming to hear and see the many stories of those affected and those doing their part to help. A number of student groups at MHS have gathered to do what they can to help, and their graciousness has been greatly appreciated. In the weeks and months ahead, we know there will continue to be plenty of opportunities to help those in need. Praying for Texas!

Please follow us on Twitter @MHSPTOBears and we will continue to share what MHS is doing to help.
