From the Principal

We had a wonderful day celebrating with fall parties and our character costume parade. I have posted pictures of the fun!

On Tuesday, we kicked off our Gourmet Food and Gift Fundraiser. This is our only fundraiser of the school year.The flower sale in the spring is sponsored by PTO.Our goal is to raise as much money as possible so that we can fund playground equipment and field trips. You can help us through online selling and sharing the fundraiser. Simply go to to register and share the fundraiser with 7 people today. Your student will earn a prize for completing this task that they heard about at the fundraiser kick-off on Tuesday. Thank you for supporting our school.

Parent -Teacher conferences are coming up on November 1st and 3rd. You should have received information from your student's teacher about scheduling a time to meet. There will be 2 options for conferences: come to Monroe for an in-person conference or an online conference through Zoom. If you are in need of a translator, please plan to attend in-person conferences at Monroe. If you have not had the chance to sign up for a conference yet, please do so as soon as possible so that you can learn more about your student's academic progress.

Waffles- Monroe Elementary's Therapy Dog

Waffles has officially started his work at Monroe Elementary! We are so excited to have Waffles join us a few days a week. Today Waffles spent some time in various classrooms throughout the building to interaction with our students.

Monroe Elementary is a Title One school. What does that mean?

Scholastic Book Fair

We will be having a Scholastic Book Fair on October 31st-November 4th. Your child is welcome to bring money to purchase books during their library times that week. We will be having a parent event on November 1st and 3rd during parent teacher conferences for anyone interested in shopping at our book fair. Scholastic has great books at reasonable prices and Monroe Elementary gets a portion of the sales.

If you are interested in volunteering to help in our book fair, please contact the school. We are looking for parent volunteers for both evening events.

In the past, there have been donations collected for students to purchase a book that might not be able to. If you are interested in donating, please send your donation to the school office.

If you have Facebook, please like the Monroe Elementary page so you can get updates.

From Ms. Allen- School Counselor

October is a time many people enjoy watching Horror Films and Scary movies. Horror films can lead to anxiety, phobias, and sleep disturbances for kids.

Some things grownups can do to reduce the negative effects of horror movies:
1. Monitor what your student is watching
2. Utilize parental control on TVs and computers
3. Talk with children about their fears
4. Don't be afraid to set limits if your child wants to watch something you do not find appropriate.

Common Sense media is a great site to read about movies and reviews before your child watches something. They have a list specifically for scary movies
