Messages to the Class of 2022

What a year! From the many Top 5 medals earned, championships that were won, or the amazing energy at the Friday Night Football game - you all brought us out of mask wearing in the best way possible. Nothing but the best wishes as you move into the next chapter of your lives. Once a Stallion, always a Stallion!

Erica Moran

MSHS Vice Principal

I play Rod Stewarts Forever Young at the end of year for all my seniors who took Civics & Economics. I think the lyrics are synonyms for Civics & Econ and say it best:

May the good Lord be with you down every road you roam.
And may sunshine and happiness surround you when you’re far from home.
And may you grow to be proud, dignified and true.
And do unto others as you’d have done to you.
Be courageous and be brave.
And in my heart you’ll always stay
Forever young. (Forever young)
May good fortune be with you, may your guiding light be strong,
Build a stairway to heaven with a prince or a vagabond.
And may you never love in vain.
And in my heart you will remain

Rodia Montgomery-Gentry

Follow your passion, but always have a back up plan.
Learn to adapt and keep an open mind with everything you do in life.
Don’t be afraid to travel the country/world to expand your view of this place we all call home. Success is there for everyone to achieve but its up to YOU to work hard and obtain it.*Live life*

Mercedes Ochoa

Director of Language and Literacy, Language and Literacy Department

In 20 years of teaching, very few classes have ever left a lasting impression as the 2017 DMS 8th grade class has done. You were incredibly intelligent, kind, and supportive during a difficult time for all of us. Thank you. And to that very small group of students who were very unkind to me (and who made rest of class shine even more in comparison), I hope the years have been kind to you and have matured into amazing adults.

 RG Iniguez

7th / 8th Grade Math Instructor; Desmond (2013‑2021), MLK (2021-Present)

There will be times when you feel alone in your journey to success, but you are not! There are about 37. 2 trillions of cells in your body keeping you company and keeping you alive!! So take care of your body because you only have one!
