MHS Student Score In Life By Saying This school year Monticello High School is taking part in an underage drinking prevention media campaign called #drugfree life. This is the first of a series of posters that students at MHS helped design. Each poster focuses on something students identified as important in their life. MHS and the Prevention Education Department at the Piatt County Mental Health Center are teaming up for this Communication Campaign.

Purple Martins At MHS

Purple Martin House At MHSOn April 20, 2013, a Purple Martin Gourd pole was set up in the courtyard area between the old and new building. This set up will be used in several classes to help educate the students at Monticello High School about Purple Martins. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the birds and to play a role in the management of a Purple Martin colony. They will learn what it takes to attract the birds and how to be a good Martin landlord.

Purple Martins are a migratory bird that nest and raise their young in North America and they spend the winter in South America. They usually arrive in this area around the last week in March and they will stay until mid to late August. Purple Martins are a unique bird that prefer man made housing. This setup is made of plastic gourds. The gourds are filled half way with white pine needles. Once the birds find the nesting location they will set up housing and return year after year. The biggest challenge to starting a Martin colony is getting the birds interested in the sight. Hopefully with a little luck we might get some of this years birds to check out the nesting sight and then they will return next year ready to nest.

To learn more about Purple Martins here are a few websites.
