Principal's Update 2021 - 2022
Welcome Back to James Monroe Elementary School
James Monroe's Mission
WE EMPOWER, ENCOURAGE AND EMBRACE EVERYONE!
James Monroe School empowers students and teachers to persevere through inquiry in a collaborative and creative environment.
We encourage an appreciation of differences, foster empathy and learn from our mistakes.
Achievements and mistakes are embraced, as we strive to succeed along our paths of learning, and give one another a reason to smile.
A message from the principal
Dear James Monroe Families,
We recognize for some of you this may be your child’s first time back at the school after more than a year of remote learning, others are new to James Monroe, and some of your children are rejoining after participating in-person last spring.
We want to assure you that we are creating a welcoming, positive and safe learning community for your children as they return to school.
We are thrilled to welcome our James Monroe community back in-person on Wednesday, September 1st at 10:30 am.
The James Monroe faculty and staff are committed to providing your children with the best and safest possible academic experience.
Best wishes for a safe and happy school year!
Mrs. Cyndi Tufaro, principal
Mrs. Pamela Hernandez, interim assistant principal
