The Hive is Alive at Monroe

08/22/2007 2:56 pm

The Hive is Alive! Students swarmed into the doors at Monroe today, ready to begin another successful year.

The Jr & Sr. High had extended periods in the morning to find lockers, practice locker combinations, receive the ever-popular enrollment/emergency forms, better known as "Parent Homework" and teachers went over rules and expectations with the students. This year each building will be focusing on being respectful, responsible and being a problem solver as well as being prepared. Even though summer is officialy over the students were glad to be back in the swing of things and reconnect with some friends as well. Good Luck Monroe! Go Hornets! Read more »

Thanks to Monroe After Prom Sponsors...

Thanks to several sponsors we were able to provide a safe opportunity for fun after the Monroe Prom Friday night.

About 100 Monroe juniors and seniors spent the night at the East Butler County YMCA swimming, playing basketball, cornhole, dodgeball, karaoke, watching movies and eating pizza and other goodies. Junior class parents organized the event to offer a safe alternative for prom-goers who don't want the night to end at midnight.

Sponsors were Armbruster Florist, Elder Beerman, Dominos, Tasty Creations, Berns, Remax, Mark Mattingly, Chase Bank, SuperCuts, Target, Dillards, Ball Brothers, Wendys, Kroger, Jubilee, Ameristop, Dr. Michael Kinser, Tom Faulkner Construction and Berns Garden Center.

A big thank you to junior class parents who helped organize and chaperone the event: Jamie and Paula Pierce, Karen Hein, Norby and Tammy Lewis, Dave and Brenda Milburn, Mike and Wendy Minor, Dan and Becky Taylor, Mark and Missie Osterman, and John and Susan Beagle. A special thanks to Officer Myers from the Monroe PD who provided security for our teens from midnight until 4AM! Read more »

News from the Monroe Jr/Sr High School Athletic Training Room.

Soon you will see a new piece of equipment in our athletic training room, a Cybex 6000. Through the efforts of our Athletic Boosters club and our school district we were able to purchase this equipment. The Cybex is a very versatile tool as it can be used to work on range of motion of a joint and strengthening. Cybex machines are used at the NFL combine each year to evaluate if a prospective athlete has a weakness or injury which needs to be addressed. The athletes are offered reports which can be used for feedback and for evaluation purposes.
