Monroe High School
Welcome to Monroe High School - Home of the Bearcats!
A Tradition of Excellence for 100 Years
Parents and Families -
The 2012 – 2013 school year has been both exciting and memorable. Our students have continued to excel in many areas, both in the classroom and on the playing field. Bearcat PRIDE is alive and well! The staff and student body have reached many goals and have continued to separate from the pack. Great Job to all involved.
As the school year winds down there are some things you should look for. For all of our Senior Parents, as I am sure you are well aware, this is a hectic but memorable time of year. I cannot encourage you or your students enough to attend end of the year events. All too often students and parents miss out on once in a lifetime events because they thought they were too busy to attend these functions. Once these events are gone you can never retrieve them. Do what you need to do to attend our Senior Awards on May 30. Do what you need to do to attend Graduation on June 8. These are events that only happen once in your child’s life.
There are a number of “traditions” that also occur annually however, that the school does not sponsor or approve. Parents have always had numerous questions about these events that many students consider “traditions.” Many parents assume that the school approves of these events, which is not the case. Unfortunately, some of these events have created situations where school intervention and even discipline have been required.
Here are a few guidelines to determine if an event is school sponsored or approved:
1. If the event starts late in the evening... it probably isn’t school related.
2. If it is overnight & you haven’t signed a permission slip… it isn’t school related!
3. If “kidnapping” is involved… it isn’t school related!
4. If alcohol or drugs are present… it isn’t school related!
Our goal is to have a safe and positive end to the school year and want all of our parents to be informed so they can make informed decisions. As always, when in doubt …. Call the main office with any questions (360) 804-4500.
Traditions have great significance in our lives and often are tracked in history but sometimes what young people consider “traditions” may be be only recent events and confused as being related to our school. Some families assume that the school approves of these events which is not the case. Here are a few guidelines to determine if an event is school sponsored or approved.
- If the event starts late in the evening... it probably isn’t school related.
- If it is overnight & you haven’t signed a permission slip… it isn’t school related!
- If “kidnapping” is involved… it isn’t school related!
- If alcohol or drugs are present… it isn’t school related!
As always, when in doubt …. Call the main office with any questions (360)-804-4500.
