Monroe High School Update (11/9/21)

November 9, 2021

Dear students, parents, and staff,

November 5th was the end of the first quarter for the 2021-2022 school year. The year is progressing quickly. With the changing of the quarter and the seasons, many things are happening at MHS. Please review the following information as many important dates are approaching.

Quarter 1

Though the high school follows semesters for courses and credits, the quarter mark is an important time for high school staff. Teachers will be updating grades for student progress and preparation for parent teacher conferences. These grades are conversation pieces for students, staff, and parents to help identify where a student’s learning/growth is.
Quarter grades are not transcribed and are simply a progress mark.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent teacher conferences are set for November 18th and 19th. To accommodate for parent work schedules, conferences are offered from 8:00am to 8:00pm on Thursday the 18th and from 8:00am to 12:00pm on Friday the 19th. We are very flexible with these meetings, but typically allocate 20 minutes for parents and students to meet with one or all of a student’s teachers. Virtual meetings are possible as well. We strongly encourage all parents to schedule a time to meet and discuss your child’s current growth. Please call the high school office to schedule a time. 541-847-5161

Fall & Winter Sports

Fall sports recently came to an end. Both Football and Volleyball teams had tremendous seasons. To conclude the fall sports, we will be holding the end of the season banquet on November 17th. Desserts will be served at 6:30pm and the awards will begin at 7:00pm.

Winter sports (Basketball and Wrestling) begin November 15th. Please make sure every student athlete has their paperwork complete before starting practice. Any student who participated in a fall sport does not need to complete another sports packet. Cheer is another option for the winter time for kids to participate in an extracurricular activity. Practices for cheer have started, but it is not too late to join. We ask that you check with the HS office to confirm all paperwork is complete.

Thanksgiving Food Drive

MHS Student Council is organizing a food drive for families in need. The holidays can present hardship for some in our community and the Student Council would like to support them by providing Thanksgiving dinner. Each class has been given a list of food items to collect in order to fill these boxes. Students have access to the list on their class Google Classroom page. Please help us fill these boxes for the families by donating any item on that list, by November 23rd. The list will be updated daily as to not have any surplus. For more information, please reach out to Mr. Dan Wolfe at

Along with the food drive, the Student Council is coordinating a penny drive. The money raised will go to purchasing any final items for the food drive.
