Washington State University, Academic Outreach & Innovation, is offering reading skills and speed reading programs this summer for children and adults. Please see the attached flyer for more information.
On Wednesday, April 18th, the Montesano High School Sophomores and Juniors taking Modern World History or U.S. History II will have an opportunity to attend a presentation on the Holocaust. Students in these two classes study World War II as a major part of the content of both courses. This year we have an opportunity for a guest speaker to come and give a presentation on her family’s experience with the Holocaust and the impact it has had on her life. We hope that by listening to someone with a personal connection to this tragedy his/her story, it will create a meaningful learning experience for our students.
Parents and community members are invited to attend an evening presentation on Tuesday, April 17th, from 6:30-7:30 PM in the Montesano High School Library. Please contact MHS or your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
The Montesano High School Letter of Intent/Signing Day will be Friday, April 20th at 9:30AM in the MHS Commons.

Your student needs to notify the Office and let us know if they would like to attend this event and if so, what and who are they are signing for. And you are welcome to come celebrate their achievements with them on April 20th!
On Tuesday, March 27th, we will be having the following guest speakers at MHS:
High School Presentation:
Drew McDaniel, Director of Columbia Wellness, and Alice Larsen, Manager of Grays Harbor Crisis Clinic will be discussing the suicide prevention presentation, 5 for Life. This presentation will occur in history classes. Not all students will be able to attend due to time and space requirements, but if you would like your child to attend the presentation, please have your son or daughter contact the high school office at 360.249.4041. We will have additional counselors available during and after the presentation if students need to talk or would like more resources from Columbia Wellness.
Junior High Presentation:
Detective Jay Staton and Chief of Police Brett Vance from the Montesano Police Department will be discussing social media and sharing pictures in the digital world. They will be accompanied by prosecuting attorneys from Grays Harbor County. The main goal of the presentation is to educate students on the dangers of posting and/or sharing inappropriate pictures with one another and on the internet. The presentation will take place in their English classroom. With access to technology growing in and out of school, we feel it is important to work with parents to educate our students on using media in a safe and educational manner. If you have questions or concerns about your child attending this presentation, please call our high school office at 360.249.4041.
