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

Good afternoon!

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.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-teacher conferences will be occurring on November 4th and 9th from 4:00-7:00 PM. Conferences will be held online through Zoom unless you prefer to meet with the teacher in person.

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!
