Pipeline to facts about your public schools * * * * * How Are We Doing?

Our hearts are with Marysville schools.

At the request of Monroe High ASB leaders, Bearcat fans attending Friday’s football game dressed in red to support Marysville and a moment of silence was held to remember those lost and who are hurting after Friday's tragedy.

Youth will obviously need support from their families as more is learned about this terrible news. The link below from the National Association of School Psychologists may offer some help to families when talking about this situation. As always, please let us know us know if you have questions or concerns we can help with and please give your child(ren) an extra hug for us.

  • Plan to visit family/teacher conferences - All students will be dismissed early Monday through Friday - October 27-31 for families to sit down with teachers to discuss learning progress and concerns. Middle and high school students are dismissed at 11:50 a.m. and elementary students at 12:55 p.m. The tips below may be helpful as families think about this upcoming opportunity to actively partner with school staff in their child(ren)'s education.
    • Take time prior to the meeting to review your child’s past assignments to note strengths and areas you think need improvement.
    • Ask your child what he/she would like discussed. A child’s view on what is happening in the classroom - good and bad - are important impressions that need to be shared with school staff. This type of information helps schools improve.
    • Make a list of your questions/comments to ensure you get the answers your family needs to help your child be successful.
    • Ask questions about what you hear from the teacher. Learning continues for life for both families and school staff. Communication is a two-way street.
    • Let the teacher know you are interested in supporting efforts in the classroom. Inquire about outside reading and home activities that might reinforce curriculum topics and skills.
    • After the conference, share what was discussed with your child. Be sure to include the positive. It helps build a child’s self esteem and may inspire him/her to even higher accomplishments.
  • Monroe school leaders are listening - Community members, families, staff and students provided thoughtful feedback about our public schools during the recent online School Board Listening Tour. All that feedback is now being reviewed for a report to be issued before Thanksgiving. Of course, nothing takes the place of a face-to-face conversation so please let the School Board know if you would like to sit down to talk about our schools.
  • Cat Tracks Club welcomes senior citizens - With fall sports, music and drama just around the corner, senior citizens are invited to join Monroe High's Cat Tracks Club to enjoy special benefits with home sporting events, school concerts and student drama productions.
