Big week coming up for the students at Monroe County High School!
On March 8th, the student body at MCHS will be joining together for a pep rally to celebrate student achievement this school. We will also kickoff our agenda for the upcoming National ACT Test Day on March 12th. On March 12th, the Junior class will be taking the National ACT Test on our campus. The Freshmen and Sophomore classes will be taking an online practice ACT test that was funded through a grant called Striving Readers. This online testing program that is used at MCHS is called CERT, which stands for College Equipped Readiness Tool. All students have been taking practice ACT test from this program throughout the 2018 - 2019 school year. Curtis Petett, a junior at Monroe County High School stated, “By having the opportunity to use the CERT program, it has greatly improved my confidence and overall scores. It provides me with multiple opportunities to practice the ACT test and gives me immediate feedback, as well as tutorials.”
Also on this day, Monroe County High School will be partnering with our community to provide the class of 2019 Seniors with a day of seminars designed to equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to successfully transition into the world of college and career. We are calling this day “MONROE 101” and we will be focusing on four specific areas that will be are relative to new high school graduate. These areas include Digital Citizenship with Dean Smith, Financial Literacy with Chris Hodges, Life Choices with Chris Rushing and Mike Turner, and Drug Safety with the Tompkinsville Police Department, Amy Hutchinson and Kelli Smith from Monroe County CARES, and Dyshel Thompson from the Monroe County Health Department.
