From the Principal

Good Afternoon Monroe Families!

This week at Monroe Elementary, we had a tornado drill. We will continue practicing for a tornado drill several times in the next couple of months. Our students did an amazing job quietly and quickly getting into the tornado positions.

Ms. Allen held a Career Cafe this week, Allie Depoy came into school to talk to our fourth grade students about her career in the mental health field. I have added some pictures below of the Career Cafe for this week.

Our kindergarten students spent some time on Thursday building leprechaun traps for St. Patrick's Day on Friday. Their traps were creative. I have added pictures of their traps below as well.

Lastly, our first grade students were working on learning a new math game in our Bridges math curriculum. The students learned a doubles math fact game that they played with a partner. The students loved being able to roll the dice and mark on their sheet what number that they rolled to make a math fact. From a building leader perspective, I love what I am seeing in the classroom with the implementation of Bridges. Our teachers have been working so hard to learn the structure of the program and preparing their daily lessons. Our students' math knowledge and number sense has increased. My favorite part of the program is the amount of math tools students are using to enhance their learning.

Just a reminder that next week there is no school. We will be on Spring Break. I hope you and your family get to enjoy time with family and friends.

Have a great weekend and great week off!
