Superintendent welcomes reinstatement of test
Historic Machado School is now the home for Morgan Hill School District students to learn about the past, as the school is being used for pioneer days programs and other school historical reenactments. The idea is a popular concept, and the school is being used on a regular basis. More docents are needed to help run the programs. No special qualifications are needed, except appreciation for kids having fun while learning. A short training session will be provided. Interested? Call Jan Strahan at 779-5731 or e-mail her at [email protected].

Celebrating Morgan Hill's top crop – the Mushroom – is not the main purpose of the Mardi Gras Festival. The real reason for all the fungus-eating and fun-making is money. The festival is a non-profit organization with every dollar above and beyond the cost of putting on the festival going into the scholarship fund, as well as providing donations to non-profit clubs and organizations who participate in the festival.
