Parents and educators have a key role in our children’s success, and it all starts with teaching, building and supporting good life habits.

Good habits:

  • Start early and last a lifetime
  • Become second nature through regular practice
  • Are a part of the learning process
  • Makes us more productive and effective
  • Are the basis to success
  • Are powerful

One of the most important life habits we can instill in our students is attendance, or “showing up.”

Showing up is more than just attending school; it is a commitment, and it represents responsibility. It’s showing up to school as well as being present and engaged.

Like you, we care about your children’s education and about their future. You have big dreams for your child and we share those dreams. Here’s why attendance is so important for success:

  • Attendance is the No. 1 predictor of dropout and graduation rates.
  • Attendance and GPA are the biggest indicators and influences of college and career readiness.
  • More than half of future dropouts can be predicted by sixth grade, based on attendance and failure in English and math.
  • Students who miss 10 or more days of school are 20 percent less likely to graduate from high school.
  • Students who miss school at an early age are more likely to struggle academically and, in later years, to drop out entirely.
  • Students who miss 10 or more days of school are 25 percent less likely to enroll in college.

Help your child succeed in school and in life—together, let’s build the habit of showing up!

Parents and planners ask: When will the NEXT school year start?

We know that many families want to plan summer vacations that won't conflict with the start of school. Although the full 2019-20 school year calendar is not yet official, we have determined that students will start school during the week of August 19, 2019. The exact date within that week will be determined by Governing Board action at next month's meeting, on March 7th. 

As you plan ahead, please bear in mind that our schools also schedule middle school orientations and kindergarten "round ups" in the days preceding the start of school. 

Once the school calendar is official, we will post key dates on our online calendars, websites, and on campus bulletin boards.

These middle schoolers offer just one example of the many ways our students give back to the community.

Showing both leadership and compassion, the students in Monroe's Leadership class made the arrangements to bring music, smiles and conversation to the residents of Caring Hearts senior care home this week.
"My committee had to find a place nearby that would like support from students," said eighth grader Valerie M. Pictured above. "We searched online for some place close, and I phoned the manager of Caring Hearts. We worked out ways we could be supportive, and scheduled our visit with them."
student helping senior citizenWearing smiles, school uniforms and colorful tu-tus, students from the school's Leadership class and the Associated Student Body (ASB) joined the residents in making Valentine's Day bracelets, talking about school, and listening to a piano solo performed by one of the students. 
"Teaching the value of giving back to the community is important to us at Monroe," said Principal Gilbert Rodriguez. "At Monroe, Leadership students gain more than gratification from helping others. They also learn how to plan and coordinate events and activities, how to identify resources they need, and how to communicate and interact with diverse groups of people. They really represent our school well."
