MHMS Information:

Movie Night:  Murray Hill Middle School’s Chapter of Global Equality Now is hosting a community movie night, featuring the film, Hidden Figures, in our cafeteria on Friday, May 18th, from 6:00p.m.-9:00 p.m.  The purpose of the event is to raise money for the School Girls Unite organization that will provide scholarships to middle-school aged girls in Mali.  Tickets to the movie night are $10, but one scholarship only costs about $80, so attendance (or a donation) means a lot.  Tickets cover the movie, pizza, bottled water, a small snack, and cookies, as well as a post-movie student-led discussion on the themes of education and equality.  Tickets can be purchased online at Please consider bringing the whole family MHMS Movie Night.pdf

MHMS Enrichment Fair and Art Show:  Please join us for our Annual Enrichment Fair and Art Show on Wednesday, May 23rd starting at 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  G.T.
