Students are getting ready for the school year at Monroe Demonstration Academy. This week, many students attended Summer Bridge Days where they had the opportunity to meet teachers, pick up their schedules, get their IDs, and meet their classmates. They split into groups with teachers and City Year volunteers to talk about the upcoming year, play games, and participate in team-building activities.
“We are one team, one goal, one family,” said Assistant Principal Rob Kaiser.
Students also found out about athletics and extracurricular activities such as band, basketball, Bike Club, cheer, drama, football, and soccer that will be available to them at Monroe.
6th graders took part in Bridge Days on Wednesday, 7th graders on Thursday, and 8th graders on Friday. All grade levels got to enjoy a tailgate party with hotdogs and music.
The event is a great opportunity for students to learn about the school in a fun atmosphere so they can feel at ease when they return for the first day on August 21, 2019.
