Climate and Culture Parent Survey


Dear Monarch Families,



Each school in the Longview School District conducts Climate & Culture surveys. As part of our school improvement process we would like to administer the survey again this spring. Students, parents and staff complete a different survey focused on the same topics. The results are used to determine building strengths and areas in need of improvement. The survey is anonymous and takes only a few minutes to complete. Please work to complete the survey by Tuesday, May 31. We greatly appreciate your help completing the parent survey and providing us with vital information specific to our school. Please follow the link below to complete the survey:

Additional Academic Support

Monarch students: Do you need additional academic support or just a place to sit and do school work? If so, please join us on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-3:30 in the LGIC. Please take advantage of this opportunity if you are struggling with grades or earning credits. Snacks will be provided. Please call our office at 360-575-7663 if you have additional questions. We hope to see you there.

SCAM ALERT!!

Dear Monarch Families,


Please watch out for SAT prep scams. How it works: You will get an unsolicited call from a person claiming to be from the College Board, the company responsible for SAT tests. The caller claims to be confirming your address, so they can send you prep materials. The caller will ask for a credit card deposit for materials that are not returned. They claim it will be refunded when the materials are returned. Please be careful. Thank you.
