Monroe High School Update (05/10/23)

May 10, 2023

Dear students, parents, and staff,

The end of the school year is near. Things seem to accelerate the closer we get to June. Here are a few things to keep in mind as we approach the end of the school year.

End of Year Assembly

Every year, MHS staff likes to show recognition for the achievements of the students. On May 31st, we will be holding our annual end of the year awards at 1:00pm. Though it is a difficult time for many to attend, all are welcome to come. We will also plan to broadcast the assembly on the NFHS network.


The last day for Seniors is May 31st. Graduating seniors will check out of their classes and complete their final tasks in high school. The following day, June 1st at 9:00am, Seniors who plan to walk with their class will have a mandatory graduation practice.

Graduation is set for June 2nd at 7:00pm. This final ceremony is a great community event. All are welcome to attend, but reserved seating is limited. We have more than enough room to accommodate all who would like to be a part of the ceremony. This event will also be broadcast on the NFHS network. Immediately after the ceremony, a short parade will take place for the kids who would like to participate. This is a new tradition that we have continued. Students are welcome to drive or ride in a street legal vehicle. Families are welcome to decorate as desired, but please remember there is not much time after the parade and the all night senior trip. Please plan accordingly. The rendezvous place for the parade is the north parking lot near the baseball field.

Smarter Balanced

Statewide assessments are just around the corner. We strongly encourage parents and students to participate in the process. The data from the assessment can help in many ways. Please call the high school office if you have any questions or would like further explanation. State testing will begin in two weeks. This is completed during the school day and is a low stake assessment.

Google Classroom

Google Classroom now offers a “parent/guardian view”. Google Classroom is a platform that some teachers use to post materials and messages for an entire class. All students have access to Google Classroom. While it is not the gradebook, it can be a helpful tool if a student is absent and wants access to class materials. In addition, teachers often post supplemental activities for extra practice. If you would like to receive an invitation to join a class, please email the teacher of that class to inquire.
