On Tuesday, May 7, the top 25 students of the class of 2019 were announced at the high school. The school administrators and teachers surprised each one of them during their school day.

A few weeks before the top 25 was announced, the students had to complete a senior survey, and one of the questions was about teachers who had a great impact on their lives. To help the administrators share the good news, those teachers who impacted the individuals in the top 25 made surprise visits to the students and gave them certificates.

The video that recorded the announcement can be found here.

Students were later invited to the top 25 luncheon on Wednesday, May 22. Their parents or guardians were invited to celebrate their achievement together.

At the luncheon, high school principal Mr. Kaste called each student up and announced to the students and parents their GPA, committed college, future plans, and their favorite memory while in Monroe-Woodbury. He also handed out little gifts that had a picture of them and their teacher who came to announce their achievement.
