• June 2022

    Dear Monroe families,

    Each year, we say, “What a school year!” as June arrives and the summer break approaches. With respect to previous years, I believe that statement most adequately applies to this 2021/2022 school year. Together, we have worked to find our way forward amidst the pressures and uncertainty of these past few months (and years). Some sense of normal has emerged, especially this spring, and it is with great hope, expectation, and enthusiasm that we approach the forthcoming 2022/2023 school year.

    Before we do so, I want to thank each of you for your partnership and commitment across these past nine-plus months. Every member of our Monroe community has played a vital role in ensuring that our school remained in session and consistent across the multiple pandemic peaks and valleys. In doing so, our Eagles were able to learn and grow together, experiencing the personal environment that we have sorely missed. Each of us has been continually challenged and stretched, but there is more that bonds us together than separates us, and this year exemplified that in every regard. There were plenty of good days and some tough ones as well. There were times that our best efforts did not equal success, a painful lesson that life continually teaches. Yet, we learned to get up, dust off, and work to “Win the Day” by giving our best and learning to be proud of the outcome.

    On behalf of our entire Monroe team, I want to thank you for the privilege of serving your family this school year. It is an honor that we remain grateful for as your children bring joy to each and every day on our Monroe campus. Over the summer, we will miss you all, but I look forward to looking out my window to see families enjoying this campus, your campus, over the coming summer months. Please knock and say hello, as our school can be terribly lonely without the energy of our students.

    Finally, please continue to look for regular summer updates (click here) for summertime and pre-2022/2023 school year information. This includes summer literacy information, upcoming summertime challenges, and logistical information/updates pertaining to the new school year. Additionally, our library will be open weekly over the summer (Wednesdays from 10:30am to 1:30pm), so please come by for a visit and refresh your books.

    September will be here before we know it, but before, I wish you a summer of rest, relaxation, family time, and rejuvenation. You are each deserving of a truly wonderful break.

    Thank you for taking flight with us during this exceptional school year!

    Best Regards,

    Tyler Ream
