VIP for a VIP

Monroe High School sophomores, juniors and seniors recently had the opportunity to attend the VIP for a VIP program.
Created by firefighters Steve Zimmerman and Larry Cockman after coming upon an accident which took the life of a teenage girl who was skipping school, Vehicle Injury Prevention for a Very Important Person educates teens about the realities of what can happen behind the wheel.  
The VIP for a VIP program involves two separate assemblies.  In the morning assembly, students heard from many types of emergency personnel (firefighters, EMT’s, state troopers…) who shared some of their own personal experiences of attending to serious and fatal accidents involving teens.  Through these personal accounts, videos, props and audio recordings, students were exposed to the very real and often tragic results of teenagers driving with distractions.

ESL Students Experience Quiche Language and Culture

Monroe High School’s continued globalization focus was highlighted when Mr. Humberto Gonzalez, a native speaker of Quiche, visited Jaime Tejada’s ESL classes. This is the second year in a row that Mr. Gonzalez has visited Monroe High School to share his multicultural/multilingual experience.

Mr. Gonzalez is originally from “El Canton La Libertad Olintepeque” in Quezaltenango, Guatemala. Mr. Gonzalez conducted an interactive session with students in which he shared his experience as a Quiche native speaker in different cultural settings where Quiche was a minority language. He shared the way he acquired the language and the different efforts that are being made in his native country Guatemala to conserve it and promote it as an important cultural heritage for younger generations.
