 Help needed for MHS Ethics Day; Wednesday, May 17th

We need your help with McLean High School’s annual Ethics Day on Wednesday, May 17 . Each year our Seniors participate in a mock trial run by a local judge as well as small group discussions about tough ethical dilemmas. Marymount University is our generous host. To make the day a success we need your help with facilitating small group discussions and getting breakfast for the seniors. Don’t worry, it’s easy and interesting to hear what our students are thinking. See the sign up genius here for more details.

School Security Camera Fundraising Campaign:  DONATE TODAY

The PTSA needs your immediate attention to help address security risks at our school. Officer Davis, along with Buddy Sekely and his team of security professionals, do a magnificent job keeping our students safe, but outdated technology has impeded their ability.  McLean High School’s security cameras are at least 20 years old, so they are being replaced with high-tech, state of the art cameras positioned around the perimeter of the school and other campus locations. But these cameras need proper computer data storage support to be efficient.  Therefore, the PTSA is launching a Security Camera Campaign to raise $20,000 for this important upgrade.  It is imperative that we raise the level of security not only during the school day, but also in the evenings. Principal Reilly addressed our security issues and the need for this new technology at the most recent PTSA meeting.

Please help us raise the needed funds by clicking on this easy paypal link.

All tax deductible donations collected for March/April will go directly to the Security Camera Campaign.  Your contribution to this cause is greatly appreciated!
