BIG THANK YOU!  from Mustang Boosters

Thank you to everyone who volunteered and helped make the Fried Oreo Booth a success again this year.  While it was one of the hottest weeks of the summer, we were still able to keep the booth open all week and raise money with which the Boosters will fund MRHS extracurricular activities including athletics, fine arts and clubs.  A special thanks goes out to the MRHS Administration who not only manned a shift mid-week, but became pretty adept at turning out golden-delicious Oreos!  If you weren't able to volunteer at the Fair this year, please consider it for next year, or for any of the Boosters programs and events.  Without your help, we cannot be successful.  For more information about MRHS Boosters, visit  Thank you for supporting MRHS Boosters!



The Marriotts Ridge PTSA would like to welcome all new students and parents to “The Ridge”.   Mr. Sivaraman and other members of the PTSA Board will be present at the New Student Orientation onTuesday, August 25, to meet and greet our new families.   If families have not yet completed the PTSA membership online, the PTSA will be accepting memberships in the lobby of the auditorium.  Please complete the membership form that was included in the summer mailing.  For convenience, the form is also attached here   or stop by our table to pick one up on August 25.
