Monroe Elementary News

September 9, 2022

From the Principal

Monroe Elementary had a great start of the day. Today we had “Breakfast and Blankets” Grandparents/ Special Friends Day before school. Our students were accompanied by their grandparents/special friends to enjoy donuts, juice, and milk. There were lawn games and the playground for Monroe students to enjoy time playing with their special guest. It was a fun and well attended event. I have posted pictures below from the event.

Map testing reports are coming home soon. There will be a Map information meeting on September 20th at 6:30. At this meeting, Map testing information and how to understand your child's score report will be explained. Please bring your child's report so that you can use it as a reference during the discussion. **There will be a Spanish translator at the meeting.

Have a great weekend!

Teacher Spotlight- Mrs. Trimble

What is your name and your position at Monroe Elementary?

Jessica Trimble- Preschool Aide

What's one thing you couldn't live without?

My four kids are my world.

Where is the best place you've traveled to?

Hershey, PA

Who is your biggest inspiration? Why?

I have a few people who inspire me. They are women who have struggled in life, no matter the circumstances. These women pushed through and showed me and continue to show me, no matter how hard life can be we can always achieve our goals. Just because you are in a low point in your life doesn’t mean that’s where you will stay. Always keep pushing forward and work hard towards what you want in life.

What is the best book you've ever read?

I love the goosebump series of books

What is your favorite thing about working at Monroe Elementary School?

The staff at Monroe is very welcoming and helpful, some of the staff have even taught my kids when they started preschool at Monroe. Everyone is very friendly and helping me as I settle in.

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.

I have recently got into weight lifting in the last year and enjoy lifting weights in my spare time, I also buy liquidation pallets I have done for 5 years.

Positive Parenting Program (Triple P)

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. Perhaps it’s your toddler’s supermarket meltdowns… or nightly bedtime battles with your daughter… or your son’s disobedience or aggression. We give tips on how to settle the problem – quickly and calmly!

We won’t tell you how to parent. But we will give you simple, practical strategies you can adapt to suit your family’s values, beliefs and needs. Because we know happier families lead to better relationships… and successful kids! Sign up for small group discussions or one-on-one parenting support by phone on a wide variety of topics for parents and caregivers of young children, including:

  • Dealing with Disobedience
    Get tips on how to get kids to listen and follow directions—and what to do when they don’t.
  • Hassle-Free Shopping with Children
    See how to plan for easy, calm trips out in public and how to deal when kids act up.
  • Managing Fighting and Anger
    Learn strategies for teaching kids to solve problems and get along with others.
