ANNOUNCEMENTS

ANNA POLK, MHS MATH TEACHER

  • Anna Polk, an MHS math teacher, has such an amazing story to tell about her journey to Guatemala through SMU. She was blessed with the opportunity to go to Guatemala and help the local school program there.

    Her group helped to raise money for the local school and to restructure the school as well. She also collected fairly used donated band uniforms from schools around the metroplex so that those students will experience what it feels like to be on the band team and wear uniforms to perform. We are proud of you Mrs. Polk and are glad you are a part of Mesquite High School.
