Throughout its history, the Mona Shores football program has dedicated an evening to bring awareness to our military, police, fire, and emergency responders as a way of giving back. In 2016, the event drew national attention, and the 2017 event was recognized by Armed Forces Thanksgiving by receiving the “Thanksgiving in Action” award for recognizing our military (past, present, and future) while providing an invaluable educational opportunity for our students.  Since then, the event has continued to grow.

The evening serves three purposes and will have a great deal of activity going on for everyone.

First, the event is meant to HONOR those who serve or have served our country in the military, in our police and fire departments, or as an emergency responder. 

Second, the event is meant to EDUCATE our community on issues and needs that exist within these areas of service and remind those in attendance of the freedoms we enjoy. 

Finally, the event is meant to CONNECT all of these branches of service with our community. As part of our great and proud Muskegon community, Mona Shores wants to celebrate such service.

Sailor PRIDE Core Values have been shared during opening days.  The Opening Day Assembly was a real treat as the Choir performed Seize the Day and the Marching Band & Color Guard performed Open Up Wide by Bill Chase. Senior remarks were shared by Sara Harper.

Students and staff explored this week the core values of PRIDE and had discussions on the topics of Personal Responsibility, Respect, Integrity, Disciplined, and Engagement as it relates to each other, our school and greater community.

1.  It is a qualifier for the National Merit Scholarship Program.  Our top students have historically earned scholarship money for their excellent scores.
