From the Principal
It has been another busy week at Monroe Elementary. On Monday, you will be receiving your child's Map reports. Kindergarten students will not have Map reports coming home. They didn't take the Map test for the fall. Please let your child's teacher know if you have any questions. Also, coming home on Monday will be intervention letters if your child is receiving any small group interventions. Please be on the lookout for those coming home in your child's red communication folder.
On Tuesday, there will be a Map parent informational meeting. Please see the flyer below. If you are a kindergarten parent, you will not have a Map report to bring. There will be a sample report for you at the meeting to use.
This week at Monroe Elementary, our Guidance Counselor, Ms. Allen began guidance lessons with each class. During this first lesson, Ms. Allen explained to the students what her role is at Monroe Elementary. She also spent time discussing with students the guidelines for when Waffles, our school therapy dog, is in their classroom. Ms. Allen is such a leader at Monroe Elementary and we are so lucky to have her supporting our students. She provides whole class guidance lessons on a monthly basis as well as small group and individual counseling groups. Ms. Allen also assists our families at Monroe get connected to needed resources.

Raising children isn’t always easy. Would you like to feel less stressed and feel confident that you are raising happy, confident kids?
The Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) is designed to help parents set their own goals, become confident in their ability to manage parenting issues, and become self-sufficient problem solvers. This program is for parents and caregivers of children 0 to 12 years old and helps parents manage behavior and address problem behaviors.
