Message from the Principal
Welcome to Monroe where we are excited to Adventure Together! As we begin the 2020-21 school year remotely, we know you have many questions. We can answer some immediately, and it may take some time to address others. Thank you in advance for your understanding as we navigate these new times together.
Spring of 2020 challenged staff and students to find a new normal for learning, connected us in new ways, and required our teachers and staff to do their work from afar. What I learned through this process is how much I appreciate the expertise our teachers bring to Monroe; the ways in which our students continue to work hard to grow; and overall, how much I appreciate the little things in life - giving a high five, a hug or being able to laugh out loud with many people around. What I MOST appreciate about Monroe is how even under circumstances we never experienced, we continue to be a strong learning community that cares deeply for our students and each other. Our theme this year is #WeCanWeWill and despite challenges, we will overcome and succeed together. We are committed to providing a clear and predictable online learning environment for all students and to ensuring our students participate in rigorous and engaging tasks.
While we won't be able to hold events in a typical way, please know we are working hard to find new and creative ways to maintain your social connection to our school. Virtual events, though no replacement for face-to-face fun, will keep us connected as a school. I encourage you to join our PTA or Natural Leaders groups if you are interested in getting involved. Our partnership with you continues to be the strong foundation for student success and allows us all to soar!
I would like to thank you for entrusting us with your children. We look forward to another year full of academic, social, and emotional growth. Together, #WeCanWeWill have a successful school year!
