For Native American Heritage Month, Monroe students played 'Pebble Patterns' and 'Keeper of the Fire'. The games were used to celebrate the Tongva People, who lived in Monrovia many years ago. Native American children would play these games to improve their memory, stealth and survival skills.
As a dual-emersion school, Monroe Principal Amanda Noriega said this is one way to immerse students into other cultures.
Monroe's PTA helped put together a BMX Freestyle event to reward students for crushing their fundraising goal during their 2021 Jog-a-thon. The Mighty Lions raised more than $26,000 to earn the bike show.
Thank you to our PTA groups for putting together amazing events like this for our students. Great job, Lions! (All stunts were preformed by professional from the BMX Freestyle Team)

Monroe Elementary School raised an incredible amount of $26,000 dollars through this annual
event. Principal Amanda Noriega promised to go through a slip-n-slide, covered in chocolate
sauce and whipped cream, if the school was able to go beyond the $20,000 mark. Since they
beat that number, she honored that promise and slid through the sundae toppings to celebrate
her students' work.
Monrovia Unified would like to thank everyone who contributed to this fundraiser. Our students were only able to raise all that money with help from our community.
