Special Lecturer: Holocaust Survivor Eva Mozes Kor - Thursday, April 25, 2019

posted Apr 4, 2019, 4:26 AM by Richard Barden   [ updated Apr 4, 2019, 12:59 PM ]

On Thursday, April 25, Methuen High School will host Holocaust survivor, forgiveness advocate, public speaker, and author, Eva Mozes Kor.  In addition to her daytime presentation for Grade 9 students, Ms. Kor will deliver a special lecture for the community on April 25 at 6:00 p.m. in the Arthur Nicholson III Auditorium. This free event is open to the public. Please see our flyer for information on how to reserve your seat.


After being separated from their family members, Ms. Kor and her twin sister were exposed to the twin experimentation of Josef Mengele at Auschwitz. Ms. Kor's story was captured in a BuzzFeed video which has accumulated more than 150 million views. Ms. Kor is a true champion of human rights and is a tireless educator. She is also the Founding Director of the Candles Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Terre Haute, Indiana, the town where she resides.


Thank you to English teacher Jackie Rubino who pursued and organized Ms. Kor's visit to Methuen which was made possible due to the sponsorship of the Tenney Castle Fund.

posted Mar 29, 2019, 12:57 PM by Richard Barden

On Thursday, April 11, 2019, a number of MHS students will take part in GLSEN Day of Silence (Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network). Day of Silence is a student-led national event that brings awareness to the silencing effects of anti-LGBTQ name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools. Students from middle school to college take a vow of silence in an effort to encourage schools and classmates to address the problem of anti-LGBTQ behavior by illustrating the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on LGBTQ students and those perceived to be LGBTQ. Participating students are commended for their leadership and dedication to spreading this very important message.

MHS Credit for Life Fair - Friday, April 12, 2019

posted Mar 29, 2019, 9:52 AM by Richard Barden   [ updated Apr 2, 2019, 11:57 AM ]

Methuen High School in partnership with the Merrimack Valley Credit Union presents the second annual MHS Credit for Life Fair on Friday, April 12, 2019. Grade twelve students will participate in the fair, which will run from 8:00 a.m. until 10:25 a.m. in the Klimas Memorial Field House. 

During the fair, students will be exposed to the real life situations of adults in their mid-twenties. To manage decisions based on a monthly fixed income of a chosen career, students will utilize a personalized digital spending plan. As students travel from booth to booth and engage in thoughtful conversation with community volunteers, they will experience the financial challenges that come with paying student loans, handling housing and transportation expenses, and accounting for clothing, food, exercise, and entertainment. While trying to pay down a credit card balance, students will need to determine how much to contribute to retirement and savings accounts. For financial support, students will consult with credit counseling specialists.

We are thrilled to provide our graduates with the impactful learning experience that comes with this simulation of managing a real life budget. Financial literacy is essential to future success. Our goal is for all students to acquire the financial knowledge and skills to make informed decisions throughout their lives.
