Our academic support team assists students in grades 1 - 8 in need of additional reading, math, or writing assistance (as determined by the teachers). Grade-level teachers work in tandem with the St. Monica academic support team teacher. This instruction occurs within the classroom as well as in the learning center both individually and in small groups.

Students may qualify for free or reduced milk, either through Direct Certification or by completing and returning an application found on this website, in the “Forms & Fees Day” packet received at the beginning of the school year, or year-round outside of the school office. Contact the school office for more information.
How does the lunch program and payment process at St. Monica School work?
The NHS lunch program is computerized and works much like a debit card. Your family is asked to maintain a positive balance in your account. You may make deposits into this account using cash, checks, money orders, or via on-line payments. Checks are to be made payable to: NHS Food Service and should be hand delivered to the St. Monica School office. (Note: If you pay using the on-line payment option fees may be assessed at time of deposit.) You are encouraged to send regular payments to cover actual and anticipated purchases. Low account balance notifications are sent to families to help keep accounts current.
Upon registration at SMS, a family account is automatically created for you with NHSFS. Each child/student in your family is assigned a separate ID number within your family account. Their ID number is entered every time the student makes a purchase. Lunch, ala carte, and/or milk purchases will then be deducted from the family account.
Your family will receive your account numbers and log-in information the first year you are here. It should remain the same through your children’s years here. To access your account information, check balances, make payments, etc. via NHS Food Service’s Skyward Family Access, log in to www.nicolet.us, click on the “Skyward” icon and follow the prompts and instructions.
If you need assistance with your account password or log-in please contact Nicolet High School Food Service: Cheryl Claussen at 414-351-7579, or if you have other questions, the program director, Vicky Hanson 414-351-7570 M-F between 8:30am and 4:30 pm.

Academically, St. Monica School offers an accelerated curriculum, preparing students to continue their education at top-ranked high schools, colleges and graduate programs. Our learning profiles span several grades to allow for individual development. Teachers embrace all types of learning styles, to ensure individual expression and growth.
Courses at St. Monica are taught in a cross-curricular fashion, with opportunities to integrate information in a variety of types of instruction. This method of teaching hones problem-solving skills, helping our students become critical and competent thinkers, able to analyze data and articulate ideas. At the basis of all instruction is a respect for the development of young Catholic Christians.
An advisory committee that helps to define the direction of our school, the St. Monica School Committee is comprised of nine volunteers that include school parents and parish members. This consultative team helps ensure a variety of perspectives, and directly advises the principal on matters related to the school’s operation, and its exceptional learning environment.
The theme for our 2016-2017 school year is “We are called”. This call to discipleship is integrated into our daily lives at St. Monica. We feel that with all that is going on in the world, it is more imperative than ever to answer the call. We are called as people of faith to lead by example. We need to truly live the golden rule and answer the call to be Disciples of Christ. If we answer the call, we will begin to start treating everyone we encounter as children of God. We will begin to be leaders for modeling respect, care and love towards all.
We want to engage our children in conversations about what it means to be called. We will be intentionally integrating this theme into everything we do at St. Monica. We will be gathering throughout the year as a school community to discuss what it means to be called. We will also be living it experientially through our Discipleship Development Program, which is our community outreach program. It is time to be bold and answer the call. The St. Monica community has the potential to be a leader in the change that we hope to see in the world.
