  1. It would be nice to see more seating available (bleachers). Districts shrink and grow, but at the moment we are definitely growing, with a new elementary school soon to be build. Originally Maplewood High School had seating to support ALOT more student, parents, etc (both outside by the field (and even in the auditorium).

  2. I took in every minute of the MRH Homecoming from volleyball to the concert to the induction and the soccer game. It was a fantastic evening; there were so many people in the community celebrating the talents and comraderie of the students. Kudos to the planners.

  3. Congratulations to all inductees. But a special shoutout to Skip Watkins for wearing his letterman jacket. The fact that he can still get into it is worth an award on its own. Way to go Skip!!! Proud to be in the class of ’65 with you!!
