Welcome back to this week’s First Page Friday. Each Friday while we are eLearning Mrs. Beaman will feature a “taste” of a book the library has to offer. If you are interested in checking out the book you can stop by the library, or you can place it on hold in Destiny and we will deliver it to your classroom. Virtual students may also put the book on hold and we will leave it in the main office for you to pick up.
This week we will feature Yamile Saied Mendez’s novel “Furia”. Furia features a real and powerful story of Camila Hassan, who is stuck leading a double life. This story shares about family, identity, first love, and of course- futbol. We hope you enjoy this snippit of the Reese Witherspoon’s YA Book Club pick, “Furia.”
To check out the entire list of First Page Friday features, check out the MHS Library Website.

Students and parents should review these changes and expectations in the document shared below. A revised attendance schedule is also available below.
Beginning with the 2021-22 school year Mauldin High School and all GCS high schools will be transitioning to a block schedule. This change will not impact the courses we offer or your child’s opportunity to take non-core courses of interest to him or her. In a block schedule, students take four courses at a time, with each course lasting a semester instead of a full year. Class periods will increase from 50 minutes to 90 minutes long. There are pros and cons to every type of schedule, but block allows more time for hands-on engaging projects and requires the students to focus on just four subjects at a time. Additionally, there is an opportunity for schools to share resources, teachers will have a smaller student load each semester, and, with the opportunity to earn eight credits each year instead of seven, there is more room in student schedules to take advantage of electives, Career Center Courses, Fine Arts Center offerings, dual credit classes and other experiences that support Graduation Plus.
