STUDENT CREATIVITY SHINES IN NEW MHS BUSINESS CLASS
In our new Advertising and Marketing class, students explore the creative and global world of branding, corporate social responsibility, social media campaigns, public relations and professional sales. Students in Mrs. Shaffer’s Advertising & Marketing class recently created original content videos (some of which appeared on TikTok), and earned these stylish shades for their efforts. (One of the teams who had the opportunity to work on this project is pictured below.)

NOW is a great time for families and friends to order/design recognition ads (AKA baby ads) to honor the graduating seniors. Jostens, in charge of that online process, has set the deadline for January 31. Here is the link: https://www.jostens.com/apps/store/ybAdDesigner/1549546/-/2020070904243269054/CATALOG_SHOP/. If you have any questions, please let Jostens know. Their recognition ad phone line is 800-358-0800.
On a separate note, if you have any photos you can submit to fit certain themes (senior sunsets at Hospital Hill, freshman fun outside of school, grade-by-grade random candids during the past several months, and senior throwbacks), please label them as such and upload them via this private link: https://images.jostens.com/415464605. If you get a screen asking you for a User ID, type in this number: 415464605.
Finally, if you want to order a copy of the yearbook, please use this link: http://jostensyearbooks.com/?REF=A01095588. Thanks in advance for your support!
