What is Monroe Parents' Council?

Monroe Public Schools Parents' Council is comprised of representatives from the parents' clubs of each of Monroe's five public schools and provides a forum for members to share information about their respective schools, fundraising activities, and other topics of interest. These representatives act as liaisons between Parents' Council and their school PTO or parents' club. Our representatives strive to increase and improve communication among teachers, administrators, and parents for the achievement of excellence in education for Monroe students.

Monthly meetings include: reports from each PTO, a report from the Superintendent of Schools, guest speakers such as school principals, teachers, and elected officials providing updates on issues of concern to Monroe parents and educators.

In addition, our members are involved with other education-related groups, such as the Nutrition and Fitness Committee, Alcohol and Drug Awareness of Monroe (ADAM), Monroe Youth Commission, District Calendar Committee, and the Joint Curriculum Committee, and are asked to serve on various committees for the school system as the need arises.

Meetings are generally held on the first Wednesday of each month at 9:30 a.m. in the Board of Education conference room at Monroe Elementary (375 Monroe Turnpike). Meetings are open to the public.  Please consider joining us!
