Latest News

For Monroe Lions' success, please show strong daily ATTENDANCE.

Chronic absences are a critical factor that affects student and school success. Unfortunately, an overwhelming amount of student absences has prevented Monroe Elementary School from applying for a prestigious State recognition. Additionally, if a student is absent for ANY reason, even if the absence is excused, the school loses the daily amount allocated for that pupil. Over time, this adds up.

During the first 86 days of the 2017-18 school year, Monroe did not receive $126,933.78 due to student absences. Similarly, during the first 99 days of the 2018-19 school year, student absences kept Monroe from receiving $118,905.75. This year 2019-20, from September 10 to October 5, Monroe lost the opportunity to receive $29,050.38.

The loss of these funds negatively impacts our educational programs and services to students. It is imperative that as a school, we aim for strong daily attendance for the benefit of individual students and school-wide success.

Use of Technology Off Campus

Dear Mighty Monroe Families,

Although the invention of technology has spurred ingenuity, led to global communication, and changed the way that people interact with the world, it has also created some challenges and risks for children who use these communication devices. Over the past 3 years, I’ve seen an increase in the use of technology and exposure to inappropriate content during non-school hours. Many times, these online exchanges lead to disruptions of school activities, student conflict, and emotional distress.

If your child has a device--phone, tablet, laptop, video game console (PS4), X-Box, or any other communication device connected to the world-wide-web, I urge you to limit their screen time and to regularly monitor their content and the nature of their usage. Below is a helpful resource for parents.
