Welcome to Monacan…Home of the Chief Belief, “Building Respect through Building Relationships.” If you are new, we are excited to have you as part of the family, and if you are returning we look forward to what we can do together in 2020-2021! This school year will be different than any other, and our staff is prepared to roll up their sleeves and focus on you, whether you are a new ninth grader or a member of the Senior Class of 2021. We will definitely spend time with our students working on the social and emotional supports that we all need as we move forward. Monacan strives to be an inclusive school community of learners and listeners, who will recognize and celebrate the value and diversity of each student. We are committed to building a culturally responsive environment where our students are safe and feel connected to teachers, coaches, club sponsors, counselors, administrators…let’s make this easy…everyone! Building Respect through Building Relationships is not a bumper sticker or slogan…it is who we want to be every day. It is a life skill that benefits everyone and that includes you. Combined with that is the belief that with great relationships, we can take each student’s talents and collaborate to provide rigorous learning experiences and engaging activities! Make no mistake, we hope to provide challenge and the support needed to meet that challenge daily. Ultimately we want to make sure every Chief is ready for life beyond their high school experience and that includes having those sought-after skills of critical and creative thinking, communication, collaboration, and good citizenship. We look forward to another great year and growing our Monacan Community. Go Chiefs!!!
