Dear Monroe families,

    On behalf of our entire Monroe team, it is my sincere honor to welcome you to our 2022/2023 school year. As we approach this school year, we do so with full hearts in anticipation of our best year yet. This will be a busy ten months, including our first open opportunity to host a full year of family events, field trips, assemblies, and all of the other pieces that we have missed over the past few years. Through experience, we have learned to keep our school both safe and healthy and will look to apply those lessons learned as we embrace all of the opportunities of this 2022/2023 school year. In short, what we have learned has prepared us well. 

    While our Monroe team has remained true to our mission through the challenges of the past few years, we have spent the summer preparing to soar to new heights. Our theme, Fly Fearlessly, speaks to the belief and bold/decisive actions that are required to grow into our utmost potential. Our team is firmly committed to high levels of learning for each of our Eagles, and much of what we do every day is aligned with that collective promise.

    As you and your family prepare for the coming year, please continue to utilize our website as a resource for all things Back to School. In addition, I encourage you to check out our Monroe Twitter account (https://twitter.com/eps_monroe?lang=en) for updates and celebrations. Lastly, please know that we regularly update our families via MOE News. These regular updates are posted on our website under “Newsletters” (https://www.everettsd.org/Page/39706). MOE News is typically published every two weeks and shared by email, Twitter, and through the website.

    As a member of our Monroe school community, we love welcoming you to our campus. The openness of our campus to families has not been the same the past two years, but as we approach this new school year, we fully anticipate a return to our normal visitor and volunteer procedures. Please review the information contained within our school handbook (pages 8 and 9) for specific information pertaining to campus visitors, approved volunteers, and the differences/processes associated with both on-campus opportunities.  

    As our school year gets underway, please pencil-in key dates on your calendar including our Meet Your Teacher evening on Thursday, September 1st (5:00 pm – 6:30 pm) and our Fall Curriculum Night on Wednesday, September 21st (6:30 pm – 8:00 pm). In addition, our team and I look forward to partnering with you in a variety of ways including participation in Monroe PTA and Natural Leaders events, Family Nights, and the exciting restart of our Watch D.O.G.S. group. 

    Thank you for choosing Monroe Elementary and for your partnership as we work together to provide your child with a remarkable education. On behalf of our entire team, please know that we are honored to serve your family as part of our amazing school community. 

    Win the Day, Eagles!
