Monroe High School
Welcome to Monroe High School - Home of the Bearcats!
A Tradition of Excellence for 100 Years
Parents and Families,
Monroe schools, along with our city, form a community with amazing individuals who seek to respect and include everyone. We saw an example of this at our Homecoming this year. Our court, nominated by our students, was made up of a cross-section of exceptionally kind and caring individuals. I could not have been more proud.
We again all came together with the events on October 24 at Marysville-Pilchuck
High School. That tragedy along with the mounting number of incidents across the
country, emphasizes the need for us to build strong connections and relationships in
our school and community – peer to peer, adult to student, and student to adult. The
literature is clear about the importance of relationships and helping all students find
engagement in their community, school and learning experience.
As a school staff we are focusing on the power of relationships and finding
opportunities to connect. I believe one quality of a great school is when we can say
that every student is on our radar. Our ASB focuses on building acceptance and
understanding. Programs such as the Link Crew Freshman Transition program, the
Drama Club, Arts and Music Department, and all our other clubs and sports teams
do not focus just on activities or athletics, but also on building character and
leadership. Through those efforts we have and will have students that find greater
achievement, engagement, understanding, and will excel in academics, leadership
and in service to others.
We will continue to work diligently with local agencies and community members
to make sure that we are as prepared as possible for the type of situation in
Marysville and other emergencies that may occur. One of the best ways is to be as
proactive as possible and it is imperative that as a school and community, we make
sure to take care of each other. That focus and intent is bound to lead to a greater
sense of understanding and awareness.
