Monroe School District has launched a new employee recognition program, called the MSD Employee Honor Roll!
Beginning October 12, 2021, Monroe School District will begin offering optional COVID-19 testing for free, Monday - Friday at the district administration office from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for students and their families.
With our commitment to equitable access for all students as our focus, we have made changes to our board policy and procedure pertaining to student representatives on the school board. As we move into the 2021-22 school year, there will now be two student representative positions open to any junior or senior in the Monroe School District.
This program will provide an equitable start for students by offering a high quality early learning (preschool) experience before they enter the traditional kindergarten classroom.
Did you know we are still offering FREE meals for all students, even when they are attending in-person?!
The Monroe School District (MSD) Board of Directors firmly believes that being anti-racist, and eliminating racial inequities, discrimination, and institutional bias will increase achievement and graduation rates for our students while closing achievement and opportunity gaps.
As a district, we have put a lot of time and energy this year into developing engaging, relevant and meaningful lessons for our paraeducators that align with the new standards of practice. It is our goal to support our paraeducators by equipping them with the necessary tools to be successful in their vital roles, which ultimately benefits all of our students.
Next year, all MHS freshmen will be required to take 9th Grade Academy, which is a new course designed to teach important lessons in study and organizational skills, managing mental health and having a growth mindset. In addition, September 3rd is freshman orientation day for all ninth grade students at MHS.
In addition to their recognition from from the Washington State Office of the Superintendent (OSPI) for the inclusion of special education students in the general education classroom, and being named a model Professional Learning Community (PLC) school by Solution Tree last year, the Hidden River staff are now being featured on the ReadyWA's website for their commitment to improving every student's success.
At Hidden River Middle School, our staff have an "All Means All" commitment to our students, meaning that we are committed to ensuring every single student at Hidden River meets or exceeds the essential state learning standards. Our staff has identified our school-wide grading practices to be an area in which we would like to improve. We have set goals for improvement and have been working hard this year to change how we report grades to ensure they are a true reflection of students' progress in meeting the state learning standards.
