  • Monroe County Schools win awards in this year’s State Celebrate Literacy Week Contest.

    Marathon Middle High School and Sugarloaf School both were recognized during this year’s state Celebrate Literacy Week Contest this school year! They were able to do so even during the Covid-19 shutdown. Students created PSAs about how literacy takes you on adventure and the contest was based on public interaction with those PSAs on Social Media, so both schools want to thank all of you that liked and or shared one of the many Literacy in Monroe County Schools posts submitted by these schools. Along with their award recognition, Marathon High School will receive a $500 cash award and Sugarloaf School will receive $300. Congratulations to both schools and their creative students.
