Monroe Elementary News

From the Principal

We had another great week at Monroe Elementary. Our Remote Day provided the time to have discussions as a staff, both-whole group and small group on how we can move our students forward in their academic progress. We also spent time analyzing our Panorama data and taking a deep dive into how we can support our student's social and emotional needs.

Miss Mabee's kindergarten class earned a donut and pajama party this week from the Walk A Thon. I have included some pictures below.

Fall parties are coming up soon. They will take place on Friday, October 29th. Due to Covid and us limiting our visitors inside the building, parents will not be able to attend the classroom celebrations. Pre-packaged snacks will be permitted. In addition to classroom celebrations, students will be having a character costume parade starting at 2:30. Parents can attend this parade, it will be outside along the front sidewalks. Following the parade, please plan to stay and enjoy a snack and hear information about what being a Title One school means to your child's education while our students are in their classrooms celebrating fall.

A few details about your child's character costume:

* Please, no masks to prevent students from easily seeing to walk the parade route.

* "Merry not scary" character costumes, please.

* We ask that students not bring make up that would need to be applied, because of limited time.

* There will be time for your child to change into their character costume right before their parade.

Have a great weekend!

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 help each day that week.

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.

From Monroe PTO.........

We are looking to have donated or to possibly purchase a picnic table for the new space where the pavers were installed a few weeks ago. Please contact Mrs. Paige if you know of any options. Thank you!

Water bottles

Your child is encouraged to bring a water bottle to school so that they can have water throughout the school day. The school water fountains are for water bottle filling. If your child has a water bottle they can bring to school.

Costume Donation

If you have any costumes at home that you are no longer using, Monroe would be happy to put them to use for students that are in need a character costume for our Character Parade.
