Monarchs Recycle

Monarch PTA is participating in the FundingFactory® Recycling Program! This fund-raiser is FREE and simple because there’s nothing to sell, no paperwork to fill out and no The program runs year-round. Please send your empty printer cartridges, and small electronics and we’ll take it from there! Laptops and cell phones can also be dropped off in a more secure recycling box in the front office.  We will recycle the cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops through FundingFactory to earn cash for our classrooms and the grade level with the greatest number of recyclables by May 5th will win free prizes for every student.  FundingFactory also sponsors a business support program, where your employer can help out Monarch without spending a cent. FREE prepaid shipping labels can be sent, free of charge, directly to any business, organization or other facility within the continental United States. Business supporters simply need to load boxes, apply a FREE prepaid shipping label and leave them for the next UPS pickup.

Kindergarten Round-up for 2014-2015

We are rounding up all soon-to-be Kindergartners!  We are very excited to welcome you to the Monarch family. "Round-Up" serves as a way for us to gather necessary information about our incoming kindergarten students.  Your child will meet one-on-one with one of our Kindergarten teachers for about 20 minutes.  We will do a basic screening with your child as he/she gets to "show their smarts!"  We are asking parents to sign-up for a 30 minute slot on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 or Monday,
August 4, 2014. Please note: The teacher completing your child's "round-up" screening is not necessarily the same teacher your child will be assigned. Kindergarten Round-up Form

The Monarch Elementary Butterfly Garden

With the goal of providing an outdoor learning area for students, we are hoping each family will support the construction of butterfly garden. A Boy Scout with an Eagle Project is a win-win situation for our school community! It will take $3,000 just to get started on the garden. Learn more....
