Monroe High School

2016 Local Scholarship Application

Welcome to Monroe High School - Home of the Bearcats!

A Tradition of Excellence for 100 Years principal John Lombardi

April 2016

Parents and Families,

As we welcome spring and enter the last quarter of our school year, I would like to continue to encourage our students to stay motivated and dedicated to their studies.

This is a very busy time of year for our students. Registration for next year took place the week of March 7th. Over 400 AP tests will be taken between May 2nd and May 13th. Our administration, staff
and faculty are 100% committed to supporting them, helping them reach their academic goals and finishing the school year successfully. Our confidence in our students to do their part, in achieving and reaching their potential remains high. Smarter Balanced Testing is scheduled to take place mid-May.

To our students, I ask that you reflect on your goals and strive not only to pursue personal excellence but also to demonstrate your perseverance and integrity. Know that I am here to support and encourage you as you explore different possibilities and grow as learners.

To our parents, it is through your cooperation that we continue to make a significant difference in the lives of our students. As we endeavor to take Monroe High School beyond its past accomplishments, our partnership becomes that much more critical. The faculty, staff, and I value our role in your child’s education and vow to work for the best interests of our students and community.

Serving as principal at Monroe High School is as great an honor as it is a responsibility. I believe that the foundation of our future achievements will be found in the power of our combined efforts and the strength of our interactions. I welcome your feedback as we begin to plan for the next school year. Please feel free to contact me with comments or suggestions.

Important Notice About Internet Safety

The best way to protect children from online harm is to keep computers in a family area of the home. Visibility allows parents to look over the students' shoulders without being too oppressive. Young children should have a parental chaperone whenever they are on the Internet. Two sites that discuss these issues and offer advice can be found at www.safekids.com and www.safeteens.com. Hyperlinks to staff web sites (located on the Staff page) are provided for student and parent convenience, and all staff web sites are hosted by external Internet service providers. Monroe Public Schools assumes no liability for content contained on external service provider sites. Filtering software from one of the providers listed below is recommended to prevent unauthorized access to sites beyond the District's control.
