Hello!It is amazing to think that we have finished our first trimester of the school year.Report cards are going home today.Please review the information provided by our teachers.This communication is important to your child’s academic, social, and emotional growth.
To maintain security of our building, I have requested that teachers lock their doors at night when they leave.Students need to remember to take belongings:homework, lunch boxes, etc., when they leave the classroom at the end of the day.Yes, we are teaching and practicing responsibility.

Yesterday our December All-School Meeting, facilitated by Ms. Esterline, was all about community. Stephanie Murray and her student volunteers fostered excitement for our MCS Food Drive.

We also had Eugene Doyle from the Last Resort Farm visit us to share the "Farming in Monkton" writing contest details. We hope many students in grades 3-6 will take the challenge and explain why farming is so vital to our Monkton community.
