Last week, December 3rd through the 7th, was Kindness Week. Kindness Week, named Mohi Knows Kindness, is a campaign run by three Monarch DECA students. Megan Volpe, Mitch Perez, and Sam Keenan have worked countless hours on this event. Mohi Knows Kindness week is a week full of care and happiness where all students at Monarch have the opportunity to write anonymous kindness slips to teachers or friends, and perform kindness commands to create a chain of good deeds throughout our school.
MohProClo is a closet for student who can’t afford business clothes. A group of Monarch DECA students created this community service project that takes donations from the community, and creates a closet that has business clothing to give to students for free who cannot afford to buy them. If you have any donations, please contact Julia Kubiak at 303-877-5675.
