• Dear Monroe Elementary families,

    I hope this message finds you and your loved ones in good health and high spirits. As the new school year approaches, it is my great pleasure to extend a warm welcome to each and every one of you. My name is Rich Middaugh, and I am thrilled to introduce myself as your child's new principal for the upcoming academic year.

    First and foremost, let me express how excited I am to join the Monroe community. It is truly an honor to be a part of such a dedicated and passionate group of educators, students, and families. I believe that a strong partnership between home and school is the cornerstone of a successful education, and I am committed to fostering open lines of communication and collaboration throughout the year.

    My approach is centered around creating a positive and inclusive school environment where every student and family, feels valued, empowered, and motivated to learn. I firmly believe in the power of differentiation, recognizing that each child is unique and possesses their own strengths and areas for growth. Together, we will embark on a journey of exploration, curiosity, and academic achievement.

    Throughout the school year, you can expect regular updates from me regarding school activities, curriculum highlights, and any important events. I encourage you to reach out with any questions, concerns, or insights you may have. Your input is invaluable and plays a crucial role in your child's educational journey.

    In the spirit of community-building, please continue to check our website and school newsletters for upcoming events. There will be wonderful opportunities for us to meet face-to-face, discuss building expectations, and share our visions for the year ahead. I am eager to get to know each family and create a strong foundation for our partnership.

    As we eagerly await the first day of school, please feel free to connect with me via email at rmiddaugh@everettsd.org or through the school office at 425-385-7300. I look forward to a year filled with growth, learning, and memorable experiences.

    Thank you for entrusting me with the privilege of being a part of your child's educational journey. Together, we will create a nurturing and inspiring environment where your child can flourish academically, socially, and emotionally.
