Principal's Message / Mensaje del Director
Dear Mustang Parents and Guardians,
It is with great pride that I have been chosen to serve Monroe Elementary as your principal. Coming into a school that has such an outstanding record of student achievement is an honor. Last year Monroe earned the California Distinguished School Award which is the pinnacle achievement for any school. This is earned by outstanding student achievement supported by a phenomenal staff.
This year we are excited to have been chosen as an official AVID Elementary School. “AVID provides scaffolded support that educators and students need to encourage college and career readiness and success.” https://www.avid.org/what-avid-is We are honored to begin this endeavor of support to our future college graduates.
Our hard working staff and I will continue to hold high expectations, not only for ourselves in the service of our community, but for the students we serve. Student and campus safety are our number one priority. We will continue to monitor and uphold stringent security measures on our campus so that we can be focused on learning.
The delivery of your child’s education is more complex than ever and includes daily collaboration with verbal content that cannot be fully made up due to an absence. Please remember that school attendance is VERY important for your child’s education. There are 185 non school days in the year to schedule non illness absences, vacations and appointments. We ask that you join us in the instilment of the importance of school attendance to your child’s education.
I am looking forward to serving the Monroe community and know it will be another distinguished year of learning and high expectations for your future college graduate !
Thank you for the opportunity to educate your future college graduate !
Gracias por la oportunidad de educar a su futuro graduado universitario
Kristie Joiner, Principal
