Montesano School District

Excellence in Education

Montesano is a community where people learn,
grow and work together.  With high-quality
instruction, every student, regardless of race, class,
language, or disability, can succeed. 

Chicken Pox

A student at Montesano Jr/Sr High School has recently been diagnosed with Chicken Pox. This is a good reminder for all parents to check your student’s vaccinations to make sure they are up-to-date. Please report any Chicken Pox symptoms to our school nurse for evaluation.

Healthy Youth Survey

Our school will participate in the Healthy Youth Survey this Fall.  

The survey asks questions about risks for injury, health outcomes, and alcohol and drug use. Schools, and state and local agencies use survey results to support our youth and reduce their risks. The Healthy Youth Survey is voluntary and anonymous and provides important information to guide policy and programs that serve our youth.

Guest Speaker (Sophomores & Juniors)

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.

Guest Speakers coming to MHS

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.
