Help the AVID program get FREE supplies!

The MHS AVID program is participating in the Office Depot ink & toner recycling program!  Here’s how it works: Drop off old/used ink and toner cartridges from your home or office printer(s) in the box located in the main office. Once the boxes are full, it will be sent to Office Depot for recycling and a voucher to use in ordering supplies for the AVID program!  It's that simple!
