Arianna and Olivia earned a trip to the book vending machine because they decided to spend their recess picking up trash around the school yard.
The reading groups at MC did a great job performing their selections for various staff members today.

The Monroe Center Halloween parties were so much fun! Thank you to all our parent volunteers who helped to make them possible!
Today Mrs. Lassard's 4th grade class competed in the Cards and Castles Challenge.
Students had to work together in this team building activity to design and build a
castle adhering to specific size and shape perimeters. Students were not able to
communicate verbally but could write and draw their ideas. They collaborated and
strategized with patience and true sportsmanship! I am so proud of them and amazed at their creativity!
Today 10.31.23 Trace in Mrs. Lassard's 4th grade,
completed his quest in Amplify.
He was rewarded with a certificate and a golden coin which he
exchanged for a book. So proud of this student!
Prepping for a SPOOOOOKY lunch tomorrow!
Celebrating student successes in 5LA at MC!
