Congrats and more:
¨ Congratulations to the Boys Football team and coaching staff for an outstanding season! This team accomplished more than the best football season on record in the history of Monroe - they've brought pride back to the community, built spirit, and demonstrated that Monroe students are capable of great things. Intangibles that can't be measured in stats but are so important. And, it's now cool to wear Blue & Gold!

¨ Special thanks to the following volunteers who helped sell tickets during the football playoff season: Jane Majors, Don & Jeannette Sprague, Vicky Little, Tammy McMonigle and Denise Krause. Also, I want to thank Mark Osterman for helping to inflate The Hive before the football games. I neglected to include him with the others in the crew. We appreciate the many volunteers who help the athletic program throughout the year. It takes all of us to make the difference!
