Recycling Club

The Recycling Club is looking for students who are interested in making a difference. The club meets Thursdays and Fridays after school for 30 to 45 minutes, collecting and processing all recyclable materials throughout the high school. Last year the club was revitalized, and between February and June we drastically changed the destination of much of MAUs waste--from the landfill to the Zero Sort recycling facility in Rutland, VT. The club redeemed more than 8,000 returnable bottles and cans. We estimate this to be about 1/3 of the overall bottles and cans recycled. Doing the math and extending those numbers to the entire school year, that means our school community used almost 50,000 bottles and cans last year. In an effort to decrease such huge waste we sold reusable water bottles and continue to encourage everyone to use less, reuse more, and recycle whenever possible.

Scholar's Bowl

The Scholars Bowl Team participates in academic competitions with other schools from around the state. Team members answer questions from history, literature, science, mathematics and other fields. The season culminates in the state playoffs in April.

Senior Class

The Senior Class officers meet monthly to make plans for their senior ball, senior class trip, graduation, and other budgetary projects. They are part of the graduation planning team, which begins meeting in January. Proceeds from their senior ball and fundraising efforts from their freshman-junior years help with their donation efforts to the school and the community. They donate yearly to the local Dollars for Scholars Chapter, which benefits their fellow classmates. They pay a portion of the expenses for the senior class trip.
A gift for the school is discussed throughout the year with administrators and faculty to find the perfect gift. It is then presented to the school principal at the annual awards ceremony in June.
