Welcome

  •  Today, June 2, seems a fitting day to leave this message. Today is my son's 31st birthday, which is my marker for years at Monroe, 31! It is with excitement and sorrow that I leave my last message for the Monroe family. I have had 31 great years at Monroe and even longer in the district but when kids you knew in kindergarten, come back to be increddible colleuges and teachers, perhaps it is time to move on. I know whom ever comes after me will come with great energy, ideas, and hope for our Monroe family. I have no worries about that. Monroe has been a wonderful place to grow into my retirement.

    Thank you for sharing all your fantastic children with me over the years.

    Spring!

     Wow! A whole year since this most odd of all times began. In so many ways this years has been challenging and informative. With the news of vaccines, schools beginning to reopen, and of course spring and a bit more sunshine, I hope some inspiration and hope is filling your thoughts. 

    All though the weather of spring is always a welcome sight I know that does not mean the day to day struggles disappeaar. Please find below resources that may be of help. There are resources for food,clothing, and housing. Also below the chart is a link to some possible help with utility bills, just click on energy assistance.

    As always if there are other concerns you are having you can always email me at ddoyle@everettsd.org or call the school.

    Well here we are in the thick of online learning. A job well done to those of you who wake up daily and log on to see what learning adventures your teacher has in store for you each day. I admire all of you who can focus on your Zoom class and then spend even more time completing assignments or iReady tasks. But it is what it is and it is online learning.

    If however, online learning is not working for you or your finding it hard to log on everyday to participate please reach out to your teacher or me and let us see what we can do to help. I know for a whole lot of people the internet can be as much friend as foe. It is also something we have very little control over. Do know that if you are eligible for free or reduced lunch your family can apply for Internet Essentials from Comcast for $9.95/month. It is not the fastest speeds but it is a connection. If this is something you are interested in and I can be of any help please reach out.

    Just as in the spring when are busy lives were slowed down, I hope you take this time to enjoy the colors of the natural word around you. I walked a lot last spring and enjoyed watching the slow appearance of spring. Now as I walk I will notice how nature tucks away all its blooms to prepare for winter.

    Bundle up get outside breathe that fresh air. 

    Reach me @ ddoyle@everettsd.org

     

     

     

     September 2020

    .....And just like that we are back, sadly still online but all together once again.

    Again, we are charting new territory together. Please, whatever your need or question reach out to us at Monroe to see how we can help out.

    The best way to reach me is through my email, ddoyle@everettsd.org. I hope to join a lot of class Zooms to see what you all have been up to or just to wave. 

    Enjoy the last few days of summer before you log on to a new school year!

    The slogan for the Corona Pandemic seemed to be "We are all in this together." We certainly are all in this, our struggle with racism, together and maybe for once we will actually take action all together. I know action looks different for everyone so for that I offer the following.

    For those who want to do, read, think or somehow be involved in the current conversation - movement please consider the resource below. It is well organized and laid out to facilitate however much involvement you are looking for for yourself or for your family.
