Opportunities for Parent Involvement    


We believe collaboration among all segments of the Mount Miguel High School community is essential. The major decision-making organizations on campus have representatives from all stakeholder groups.

The School Site Council and WASC Focus Groups have representation from teachers, students, classified employees, parents, community members, and administrators. PTSA, Music Boosters, Athletic Boosters, AOTT and ROP Advisory Boards, and the Mount Miguel Alumni Foundation support student learning by raising funds to support academic and extra-curricular programs and assisting with student recognition. 

Parents sit on advisory councils for English Learners (ELAC), Parent Human Relations Committee and GATE with opportunities for district representation. Parent surveys are used as an additional source of information.

Parents have opportunities to learn about college entrance and graduation requirements, financial aid, and course content at freshman, Sophomore-Junior and Senior Parent Night and  Back to School Night. Parents are invited to a Freshman Orientation during the Spring of their student's eighth grade year to learn about academic and extracurricular offerings. Parents are asked to participate in conferences when students are working with their counselor to develop a four-year plan.

We look forward to expanded opportunities for participation in the future. We believe parent and community involvement is essential to student achievement. We invite your partnership.

Staff have input in site decisions through Department Chair Council, School Site Council, ELAC, Site Leadership Team, WASC Focus Groups, surveys, and the Smaller Learning Community (SLC) Committee. Additionally, Department Chairs sit on District subject matter councils. MMHS sends representatives to the Curriculum Master Planning Steering Committee (CMPSC), Professional Advancement Committee (PAC), and other GUHSD committees. The Mount Miguel Alumni Foundation was formed this year. 

PTSA


Why Should I Get Involved? Because of your children and your community. As a PTSA member, you are more likely to be a more informed and involved parent. These are important times for parents to learn ways to keep children safe, trouble-free and involved in school. PTSA is the place to gain that knowledge. PTSA provides parents the opportunities to meet and talk to the Principal and other parents who have the same worries. Through sharing common concerns, you will feel empowered to do the tough job of parenting and you will not be alone. PTA offers a great opportunity for parental support and makes school involvement easier. 

We hope you had a relaxing summer, and you are ready to be a part of a great year of learning and fun! The Mount Miguel High School PTSA is an active group of parents, students, administrators, and staff members working together to help make Mount Miguel High School the best high school in the district. 

Mount Miguel students and their families are encouraged to join Mount Miguel PTSA. Parent involvement doesn’t have to end at the high school level. It just gets more fun! We welcome your participation and there is no obligation. We meet monthly in Conference room A. Meeting notices are posted on the Mount Miguel website calendar athttp://www.guhsd.net  

If you would like to join us and participate in any project, we would love to hear from you. You may drop us a note via the front office.
