The Circle of Pride (On Campus Parade): 9 am to 11:30 am on Wednesday, June 3, 2020.

We envision The Circle of Pride as a fun and celebratory event where students and their families decorate their cars ahead of time, and one at a time drive onto the blacktop and drive The Circle of Pride while their teachers and Monroe staff cheer them on. Teachers will observe safety guidelines and social distancing.

This event is the right time to express school spirit and creativity! We ask that students and their families decorate their car in any creative style (i.e., signs, flowers, balloons, and play their child's favorite songs). We also ask that parents write the name of their child on a piece of paper, in large bolded letters, and place it on the inside of their dashboard. As the car drives-up, we will read the student's name and announce it on the sound system. Enjoy the ride around The Circle of Pride, honk, and cheer!

Families who will "walk the Circle" can dress up in any celebratory theme and are asked to line-up at least 6 feet apart alongside Colorado Blvd. We recognize that many 5th graders are disappointed at missing the final months of their elementary life---- and miss socializing with their friends on campus. However, we would like to keep everyone safe, and we ask that students and their families remain in their cars and appropriately distanced during this event.

Below are the scheduled time slots for each class for the Circle of Pride - June 3:
-Ms. Rivas - 9 am -9:45 am
-Ms. Mallette - 9:45 am -10:30 am
-Ms. Inda - 10:30 am - 11:00 am
-Ms. Iler - 11 am - 11:30 am

We will have nearly 70 5th graders, as a means of having an orderly event, cars should line-up around the perimeter of the school starting on Alta Vista heading south. Then the car line will turn right on to Olive heading west, then turn right on Mayflower heading north. Finally, cars will turn right heading east on Colorado Blvd. To enter the campus, heading east on Colorado Blvd. cars will enter the campus on Colorado Blvd., through the gate by the basketball courts and swings. As cars head off campus, cars will exit via the same gate, and continue heading east on Colorado Blvd.

Our hope is to bring closure and honor to our student's elementary school years, and lovingly launch them into middle school and adolescence in a fun and creative way!

El círculo del orgullo (en el desfile del campus)
3 de junio, 9 am - 11:30 am - ver el horario a continuación

Imaginamos que The Circle of Pride es un evento divertido y de celebración donde los estudiantes y sus familias decoran sus autos con anticipación, y uno a la vez conducen al asfalto y conducen The Circle of Pride mientras sus maestros y el personal de Monroe los animan. Los maestros observarán pautas de seguridad y distanciamiento social.

¡Este evento es el momento adecuado para expresar el espíritu escolar y la creatividad! Pedimos que los estudiantes y sus familias decoren su automóvil con cualquier estilo creativo (es decir, letreros, flores, globos y que toquen las canciones favoritas de sus hijos). También les pedimos a los padres que escriban el nombre de su hijo en una hoja de papel, en letras grandes en negrita y que lo coloquen en el interior de su tablero. A medida que el automóvil se acerca, leeremos el nombre de los estudiantes y lo anunciaremos en el sistema de sonido. ¡Disfruta del paseo por el Círculo del Orgullo, toca la bocina y anima!

Las familias que "caminarán por el círculo" pueden vestirse con cualquier tema de celebración y se les pide que se alineen al menos a 6 pies de distancia junto al Colorado Blvd. Reconocemos que muchos estudiantes de quinto grado están decepcionados por perderse los últimos meses de su vida primaria ---- y extrañan socializar con sus amigos en el campus. Sin embargo, nos gustaría mantener a todos a salvo y les pedimos a los estudiantes y sus familias que se queden en sus automóviles y que estén debidamente distanciados durante este evento.

A continuación se muestran los horarios de cada clase para el Círculo del Orgullo - 3 de junio:
-Em. Rivas 9 am -9: 45 am
-Em. Mallette - 9:45 am -10: 30 am
-Em. Inda - 10:30 am - 11:00 am
-Em. Iler - 1 1am - 11:30 am

Tendremos cerca de 70 estudiantes de 5to grado, como medio para tener un evento ordenado, los autos deben alinearse alrededor del perímetro de la escuela comenzando en Alta Vista hacia el sur. Luego, la línea del automóvil girará a la derecha hacia Olive en dirección oeste, luego gire a la derecha en Mayflower hacia el norte. Finalmente, los autos girarán a la derecha hacia el este en Colorado Blvd. Para ingresar al campus, diríjase hacia el este por Colorado Blvd. los autos entrarán al campus en Colorado Blvd., a través de la puerta junto a las canchas de baloncesto y columpios. Cuando los autos salgan del campus, los autos saldrán por la misma puerta y continuarán hacia el este en Colorado Blvd.

¡Nuestra esperanza es llevar el cierre y el honor a los años de escuela primaria de nuestros estudiantes, y lanzarlos con amor a la escuela intermedia y la adolescencia de una manera divertida y creativa!

5th Grade Virtual Promotion Ceremony at 10 AM on Friday, May 29, 2020.

Dear Mighty Families,

I am writing to update you about a change in the plans for the 5th-grade promotion plan. Due to the fluid nature of things and recent restrictions on schools with graduations and promotion ceremonies, we will no longer hold the Circle of Pride Ceremony for 5th graders. Instead, we will hold a virtual promotion ceremony on Friday, May 29th, at 10 AM on Zoom. Teachers will share a private link with families via the Class Dojo. Once this link is shared, we ask that you not post or share this link and keep this event private. More details will be made available soon.

Queridas familias poderosas,

Le escribo para informarle sobre un cambio en los planes para el plan de promoción de 5to grado. Debido a la naturaleza fluida de las cosas y las restricciones recientes en las escuelas con graduaciones y ceremonias de promoción, ya no celebraremos la Ceremonia del Círculo de Orgullo para los alumnos de 5to grado. En cambio, celebraremos una ceremonia de promoción virtual el viernes 29 de mayo a las 10 a.m.en Zoom. Las maestras compartirán un enlace privado con las familias a través del Class Dojo. Una vez que se comparte este enlace, le pedimos que no publique ni comparta este enlace y mantenga este evento privado. Más detalles estarán disponibles pronto.
