If you've ever thought about joining the Huron Valley Marching Band- come join the meeting and hear more about it and ask questions.
The Stagecraft class is part of the CTE track for visual and performing arts at MHS. The class meets as a 7th hour every fall and students learn technical theatre skills and complete several hands-on projects. One of the culminating projects this past fall was a Fake Foods Project. Students worked in small groups to create a realistic full meal using entirely non-edible materials. Groups decided on a meal genre - Italian, Mexican, Fancy, Asian, Starbucks, All-American, Breakfast, etc) and had to create 8 individual pieces. The photos here include two of the Starbucks items - a coffee drink and some cookies. These items are made with clay, resin, paint and actual Starbucks packaging. Other projects include scenic painting for the fall musical, creating fully realized stuffies from drawings provided by Highland Elementary Junior Kindergarteners (sewing project) and a 1/4" scenic design model. Stagecraft is a 7th hour open to any junior or senior. Students can see Ms. Weeks for more information and to sign up for Fall 2023.
Congratulations to the Huron Valley Winter Guard! The guard competed at the Winter Guard International Regionals in Indianapolis this past weekend and had 2 outstanding performances. On Saturday, during prelims, the group had a strong performance earning them a spot in the finals for Sunday. Sunday's performance was outstanding, raising the bar even further. The group finished the weekend with a 70.4 and a 5th place finish in their first ever appearance at this regional. Way to go HVWG!!!
Milford High School proudly displays a class composite from each graduating class in the hallways. 1985's class composite has been missing for years, but Ms. Pawley, our media technician, and Ms. Hoye, our office para, were able to bring it to life by searching and recreating it.
Also available are archived yearbooks from the past on the MHS website. So no matter where you are, you can look at them!

This week Mrs. Crows AP environmental class invited Mr. Stacks from Exotic Zoo Educational Wildlife Programs to come in and visit her classes. They learned about various species adaptations and habitats. Students had the opportunity to get a personal and up close encounter with the variety of animals Mr. Stacks brought in.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Have a restful break, we will see you January 4th, 2023!
Yesterday was Monster Delivery Day!!! Students in our MHS CTE Stagecraft class had the task of taking a monster drawing made by a Highland El JK student and creating a fully realized stuffed version. They presented the final monsters yesterday!!! Always one of their favorite projects!!! Thank you to Mr. K and his JK class (and Dr. Campbell) for helping us with this project.
What awesome kids! We outgrew our stair picture and had to move to the commons. After a long day of competing, lots of medals came home with our Mavericks. Maverick DECA is truly amazing.--
If you see any of these students this week, please congratulate them on a job well done.
Each event has 3-4 flights. Milford students do not compete against other Milford students in their flight. That is why you will see several getting the overall (going on to the State competition) in each category. Milford did an amazing job representing our school and our students really stood out against other Oakland County schools.
