From the Principal

There has been a lot of fun learning this week at Monroe Elementary. Our students have been attending the Think Big Space at the high school. Ms. Allen also had a Career Cafe so that students could learn about different job fields that they might be interested in.


Kindergarten Registration for the 2022-2023 school year is coming up this spring. More information will be coming soon about how to sign up and the dates and times of registration.


There is no school on Monday due to President's Day!

Have a great long weekend!
