• Summer is a fun and exciting time for everyone to enjoy the outdoors, time with family activities, sporting events, and simply relax. It is also a perfect opportunity to encourage students to read. And reading for the sake of reading will allow your child to explore summer from home, at the beach, in the mountains, at camp, or any other summer destination you may have planned! Over the summer, many students experience the “summer slide” which is a term used to describe what happens when young minds sit idle over the summer months. Children who do not read over the summer will lose more than two months of reading achievement. Unfortunately, summer reading loss is cumulative. BHESA's students have finished 38,869 books and read 8,395 hours in myOn alone since January! That is awesome. myOn's resource is there for you over the summer. We do not want any summer sliding!

  • The City of Monroe Water Resources Construction Division is planning to replace approximately 2,100 linear feet of existing 6-inch cast iron water main on Concord Avenue between Walnut Street and Engleside Street.  Construction activities are scheduled to start on June 5, 2017 and conclude on July 21, 2017.  The purpose of this project is to address recurrent water main breaks and maintenance issues and improve reliability and dependability of water service for the years to come. A closure of Concord Avenue will be in place for the duration of the project.  However, access to the school will be afforded to all faculty, parents, and school buses at the south (Walnut Street) and north (Engleside Street) ends of the project.  All side streets intersecting with Concord Avenue will also be closed at Concord Avenue.   Full use of these side streets will be maintained, but there will be no access to these side streets from Concord Avenue. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience.   If you have any questions or concerns, please call the City of Monroe Water Resources Department at 704-282-4601.
