Winter MAP Testing

Wednesday, January 9th is the date for our triannual MAP testing.  All students at MHHS engage in this testing, and scores for MAP testing are sent home to students and parents to review.  Students in Lammersville Unified are MAP tested three times a year, and test scores can be compared from year to year from Kindergarten through 12th grade.  The scores represent a steady progression of academic abilities, and is a good way to gauge student success on important future tests like SAT, ACT, AP, and state CAASPP and science CAST testing. 

Due to the security of the test, ALL STUDENTS are required to bring their school issued Chromebook CHARGED and ready to go for the day of testing.  Typically, students should be able to complete the full testing by the early release time of 1:30 P.M.  Students who do not complete the testing before this time will be allowed to stay and complete the tests by the end of the school day.  Students who miss the testing window will be required to make-up the test. 

If you have any questions about the January MAP testing, please contact our Vice Principal responsible for Assessment, Jessica Libbee at

Speech Debate Tournament

Please help us in congratulating the following ... after a grueling weekend, with hundreds of competitors, about 1200, we have the following victories to celebrate ...

  1. Mrs. Garcia and Mrs. Lohmann maintained heroes status with the speech and debate team as they traveled with them to help judge and support the world of words! YAY ... awesome support staff and super cool peeps! 
  2. Young debaters flourished and were able to break out of the preliminary rounds and get into double octos, then octos, then quarters  (Which is a fancy way to say the top 14 of the tournament)... way to go: Aashril Shazar  & Dhruva Kolikineni!!!  As a side note, Aashril took 9th speaker for the entire tournament, which is saying something, that means against the entire field of competitors, regardless of his rank, his speaking was among the best! YAHOOOOO!!! 
  3. Speech students and funny guys also did well ... please congratulate: Mohaned Ali He took 9th place over all and made it to the semi finals &  Brianna Do made it to finals and took 7th place overall!! 

It was a rather difficult weekend, late nights and really early mornings and lots of driving and these kids still rocked!!!

Proud to be a Mustang ...
