Washington D.C. Trip - Despite the Snow!

Snowflakes fell upon the nation’s capital forcing a government-building shutdown, including several sites that were to be visited by Glacial Drumlin School 8th graders but, thanks to the efforts of Jeff Thompson, students were able to engage in plenty of experiences that will leave a mark in their memories forever.  Travel to Washington D.C. has been offered to Monona Grove School District 8th grade students since 1992. Jeff Thompson, 8th grade math teacher and 13-year trip organizer, worked diligently to ensure that students didn’t miss a beat this year. Nine staff members and 90 students enjoyed learning experiences during their March 4-7 trip to D.C. where they visited the Smithsonian, the Spy and Wax Museums and the highly anticipated Holocaust Museum, which is tied to the 8th grade social studies curriculum. The blood lab at the Crime and Punishment Museum, which supports the 8th grade science curriculum, was another highlight of the trip. Thompson shared that most students reflect that their viewing of “Shear Madness”, a long-running performance at the Kennedy Center, was at the top of their favorites list! One experience on the trip was especially memorable for four Monona Grove students who had the great honor of laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. Anita Anongdeth, Nora Briddell, Emma DeMonte, and Adam Mennenga submitted winning essays to a contest that determines the four students each year that experience this honor. Congratulations to each of these students!  As Thompson files away the 2015 trip folder, he is already creating a new one for 2016. Early registration for next year’s 8th grade D.C. trip will be coming up in May. The advantage to signing up early is the ability to make monthly payments. Stay tuned for more information; it’s a trip that is not to be missed!

Personal Financial Literacy

College, Career, and Life Readiness includes Personal Financial Literacy When we think of College and Career Readiness we typically think of the ACT and 21st Century Skills like critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration.  Monona Grove students can now add personal financial literacy to the list.  At its January 28th meeting the Monona Grove Board of Education approved a new ½ credit graduation requirement in personal financial literacy (PFL) beginning with students graduating in 2017.  The new requirement is the result of a yearlong review process led by Principal Paul Brost, teachers Josh Fassl, Brian Krey, and Sheila Hibner with input from students, community members and strong support from the School Board.  Director of Instruction Andrew Briddell secured a $10,000 grant from the Department of Financial Institutions to research the PFL graduation requirement and update course materials. Students scheduled to graduate in 2017 or later will take the ½ credit course through the Business Education Department during their senior year.  The department will also develop an online blended learning option and possibly a summer option for students whose schedules are full during the regular year.   Monona Grove High School was already one of only three schools in the Badger Conference to have a PFL elective course, and joins Middleton Cross Plains as the only Madison area district to have a PFL graduation requirement.  Approximately 44% of districts statewide require a PFL course.
