From the Principal

We had a great number of families attend our Literacy/Math Night on Thursday this past week. Thank you to all who were able to attend. I hope that you were able to play some learning games with your child that you can also play at home. Our fourth grade students also did an amazing job at their recorder concert that same night as well. I have included some pictures below.

Fourth grade parents- please notice that their is information about Canaan Middle School as well as the school supply list.

We are still in great need for parent volunteers for field day. Please consider signing up. You can join us for half of the day or the entire day if your schedule allows.

Have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day!

Attention 4th grade......

Canaan Middle School, School Supply Supplies and Supply Kits 2022-23

School Store Link:

We can use this link right away to start promoting to parents. It will take them directly to the kits available for your school! Families have until July 1, 2022 to order!

5th grade Supply List:

6th grade Supply List:

Our 4th grade students from both Monroe and Plain City will be visiting Canaan Middle School on May 12. Students will take a tour, learn about the opportunity to participate in band and hear about a typical school day at Canaan Middle School. Also, this summer, families will have the opportunity to visit CMS. As we prepare for your child to transition to Canaan Middle School we spend time learning about your child and their needs from our Elementary staff. If you feel your child needs additional support in place for their transition you may contact Marianna Hein (Guidance Counselor) or Matt Keller (Principal). We look forward to welcoming the Jonathan Alder graduating class of 2030 to Canaan Middle School next fall.

Thank you to Mr. Maynard!!

Hunter Maynard is completing his final day of student teaching in Mrs. Newman's classroom. Mr. Maynard is adored by the 3rd grade class and will be missed!

Thank you Mr. Maynard for all of your work at Monroe Elementary. We wish you the best on your future.
