St. Monica School makes changes to align with MISD | School briefs

Beginning in the 2014-15 school year, St. Monica School will align more closely with the Mercer Island School District calendar, changing its early release day from Monday to Wednesday to coordinate with STEM planning, principal Anca Wilson announced last week.

"St. Monica School's early release day will change to Wednesday," Wilson said. "This small change will greatly improve the ability of the faculty and staff to coordinate our STEM + the Arts project planning, while giving our St. Monica students the opportunity to participate in after school activities that are tailored to the early Wednesday release schedule, which most schools currently follow."

With next year's changes, St. Monica will be one of the first schools in the Seattle Archdiocese to be implementing Phase I of their move to a STEM + The Arts project-based learning model for the 2014-15 school year.
