Winterguard Update!

The MCHS Winterguard is off to a great season! They recently placed THIRD at the Naperville North High School competition against some big-name competitors. Congratulations, ladies! The team is looking forward to their Home Show, held at MCHS Central Campus on Sunday, March 1st.
