Army Youth Programs in Your Neighborhood (AYPYN) is a partnership between the army and school districts for youth attending secondary schools off the installation. AYPYN supported after-school programs are available Monday through Friday at no cost to the student during the school year. AYPYN sponsors high interest clubs enhancing the academic achievement, health, and well-being of students. The program is supervised by certified district teachers and available to all Mesa Ridge students in grades 9-12.
MRHS will offer a variety of academic, social, and athletic clubs dependent upon teacher availability and student interest. Daily attendance is recorded, but all clubs are voluntary. A student may attend a club from 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. or from 3:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. Clubs are open most school days but are subject to cancellation at any time. Student Union is open from 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday and meets in the library.
The MRHS Main Office closes at 3:45 p.m. and all exterior doors remain locked after school. Please arrange for student pick-up prior to attending a club. A student may use a personal cell phone to arrange for pick-up. Permission slips are valid for and required before students can attend any club. Students may always attend Student Union Club if another club is cancelled.
