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



  • OOOOO Oklahoma on stage - Monroe High Drama students will present the 1955 Rodgers and Hammerstein classic story "Oklahoma" beginning Friday, April 25. (above) The attention of Monroe High senior Carigan Donnelly, playing Ado Annie, is torn between Ali Hakim, played by junior Sam Burke, and Will Parker, played by MHS sophomore Cameron Lee. Oklahoma tells the tale of two young cowboys vying with an evil ranch hand and a traveling peddler for the hearts of the women the cowboys love with lots of song, dance and good ‘ole fashioned entertainment. The curtain rises at 7 p.m. and performances continue April 26, May 1, 2 and close on Saturday, May 3. Tickets are sold at the door - $12 for adults, $8 for seniors citizens and students with ASB cards and tickets are $5 for youth younger than age 12.
  • MHS and Maltby win state learning achievement awards - Congratulations to students and staff at Monroe High School and Maltby Elementary School for earning Washington Achievement Awards from state education leaders. Maltby is honored for student achievement in math and Monroe High for being in the top 10% of schools in the state where all students are making exceptional progress. Go Mustangs and Bearcats!
  • Measurement of Student Progress begins - Students in grades 3-8 will begin the annual state assessments on April 23. Check with your child's teacher for specific testing schedules. Remember - test scores are not a perfect measure of what a child can do - but tests are important. The ability to do well on tests can help throughout your child’s life whether it’s obtaining a driver’s license or landing a job. Families can help students be successful by ensuring youth get plenty of rest, eat a nutritious breakfast, start the day with a positive word, and promote a positive attitude. Together, families and their partners at school can help all students be successful in school, work and as this country’s future leaders.
  • MHS juniors to test new assessments - Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) Field Test will occur at MHS from April 14 – April 25 in all 11th grade English classes. This is a ‘trial run’ of the new assessment to help ensure the new assessments are valid, reliable, and fair for all students. The Field Test offers students and our school the opportunity to experience the online testing environment that will mirror the actual testing environment. No individual student results will be returned. MHS is part of over five million students in 23 states "testing the test".
  • Much in common - It is an honor to be your educational partner. We have much in common helping all students achieve success - in school and after graduation whether they select college/other training or start a career. To be successful partners we need to share information so please let us know your questions and comments.
