School back in session at MHS

Posted: Tuesday, Aug 20th, 2013

MENDOTA – Mendota High School students started a new school year on Aug. 15 and four days in, MHS Principal Denise Aughenbaugh reported that the year was “off to a great start.”

Speaking at the Aug. 19 board of education meeting, Aughenbaugh said parents were offered mail-in and online registration and they seemed pleased by the time-saving options. “Several parents said they appreciated the fact that their son or daughter only needed to come to MHS for five minutes to take a school picture, and then they were done,” she noted.

Current enrollment at MHS is 643, a number that Aughenbaugh said would fluctuate slightly over the next few weeks. She thanked the office staff for their work in running a smooth registration process, which was completely computer-based this year. “It was a big achievement for everyone,” she told the board, “…multiple offices are able to see live data immediately. It’s a real timesaver.”

Aughenbaugh also introduced three new teachers to the board. Special education teacher Claudia Arteaga, who is an MHS and Illinois State University graduate; family consumer science teacher Lindsey Criss, a graduate of Bradley University, who is shared with the Area Career Center; and social science and driver’s education teacher Brock Zinke, also an MHS graduate.
