  • CATA Band Earns Superior at MPA

    This past month, the CATA band had the pleasure to perform for a panel of judges at a Musical Performance Adjudication, or MPA as we call it. Although the performance was only one day, the amount of preparation we put into it was much, much more. The students have been practicing the music every day since the beginning of the semester. Some days we would stay after school to practice the music just so we could hear what it sounds like as a full band.

  • Creating a Pollinator Garden

    During Spring Break, 28 local students came together to plant a pollinator garden at CATA. Leafy green plants and colorful blooms now stand tall and ready to host pollinators in the garden. CATA’s Environmental Club partnered with Monroe’s Youth City Council to help create a memorable and useful garden. Housing more than 20 plants, on multiple beds, the group was able to completely transform a once stark landscape, into something beautiful.
