GDS Welcomes Chinese Guests

GDS 7th grade host students Megan Hoberg, Kennedy Lawrence, Morgan Lochner, Samantha Mielke, and Andrea Wendricks have the unique opportunity to host five Chinese Exchange students from Beijing, China. Chinese students arrived on Valentine's Day and will leave Madison on Thursday morning, February 19. Our GDS group toured the UW-Madison campus and Capitol on Sunday. Students will shadow GDS host students this week to experience the best of our American lifestyle. Thanks to Dr. Susan Borden of Deforest School District and Dr. Dean Bowles, Monona Grove School Board member for supporting this opportunity.

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.
