From the Principal
While the weather is turning colder, Monroe student learning is in action! Thank you to the parents that attended parent-teacher conferences this past week. If you haven't signed up yet, there is another parent-teacher conference night on Tuesday 11/9. This is a great opportunity to meet with your child's teacher about their academic progress.
Today, I had an amazing "Principal of the Day." Savannah Young in Ms. Crespo's class won this special day from the Walk A Thon. She conducted a fire drill, gave teachers treats, rewarded all of the students with extra recess, did some teacher "observations", and handed out my Friday prizes. I think Savannah had a great day!

From Savannah Young- Principal for the day
My name is Savannah Young. Today I got to be principal for the day. I got to play a board game with my friend at lunchtime in Mrs. Paige's office and she ordered pizza. I got to be in charge of a fire drill and give extra recess to all of the students. We could hear them cheering from Mrs. Paige's office. I had a great day!
November 10th- Remote Day is canceled
Jonathan Alder Community,
We have updated the Wednesday, November 10 Remote Learning Day to In-Person Learning. Please find attached a revised 2021-2022 Academic Calendar which reflects the change. Students should plan to report to school on Wednesday, November 10.
We continue to look forward to the next Remote Learning Day, scheduled on January 12, and the opportunities that such a unique experience will bring in supporting our students and the learning gaps created by the pandemic.

What's one thing you couldn't live without?
I couldn’t live without being able to spend time outside hiking or spending time with my family/friends.
What is your FAVORITE thing to do?
I love to cook and to try new recipes!
Where is the best place you've traveled to?
All of my favorite places traveled are places that I have forced myself to wake up and hike to see sunrise. I’m not a morning person, but it has always been worth it.
Who is your biggest inspiration? Why?
My biggest inspiration is my cousin Cami. I babysat her throughout high school and she inspired me to want to become a teacher.

The Napping House is one of my favorite childhood books. It reminds me of spending time with my family and enjoying each other’s company with a good book.
What is your favorite thing about working at Monroe Elementary School?
I love the size of Monroe. It is so nice to be able to make relationships with students/staff beyond my first grade classroom.
Tell us something that might surprise us about you.
Before working at Monroe, I lived and taught second grade in Guatemala.
