Big changes are in the works at Hidden River Middle School! Not only is construction well underway to add considerably more square footage, a football field, a track and a new baseball/softball field, but the school just unveiled a new, modern school logo.
Many of our our schools have volunteered to pilot a new online diagnostic and instruction tool called i-Ready in grades K-8 this year. This tool is similar to the STAR online assessment tool we have used in past years and will be used to assess student learning in reading and math. We will be fully transitioning from STAR to i-Ready in the 2019-20 school year at all of our elementary and middle schools to better support students in meeting the Washington State Learning Standards.
The Monroe Public Schools Foundation is excited to announce that they have partnered with Friends of the Monroe Library to open "The Book Room", a free book shop for staff, students and parents. The Book Room is full of donated books for teachers and staff to have for their classrooms or to share with students who may need extra books at home for reading.
Another Safe Schools training module has been added to all staff accounts. The new module, Students Experiencing Homelessness: Awareness and Understanding, is a Federal requirement that all staff must complete annually. The module must be completed by December 31.
With a goal of providing students the opportunity to take a wider variety of courses and supporting students in meeting increased credit requirements for graduation, the Monroe School District intends to shift to an alternating 8-period schedule at Monroe High School with a targeted implementation of the 2019-20 school year.
SafeSchools recently launched a convenient mobile app that will now allow any concerned individual to report a concern to us much more easily! Download the app now to easily report any safety concern to district administration!
