Hello Monroe!

Our goal for the week is to find the perfect Christmas tree out back to get inside and decorated. Oliver is big enough this season to help hang most ornaments, while it won’t surprise me to find Nolan scaling the tree!

Dessert auction success

Over 50 people filled the Monroe Elementary School gymnasium the Monday before Thanksgiving to raise hundreds of dollars for the student enrichment fund. Donations of pies, cakes, dinner rolls, whoopie pies, cookies, baklava and more poured in from generous donors and went home with happy high bidders.

Student artwork and projects filled the walls for community members to view, and former Regional School Unit 3 kindergarten and first grade teacher Mrs. Charrier acted as auctioneer. It was a wonderful evening filled with community support to raise money for a great cause; if you missed it this year, make sure to pay attention next fall!

Have a great week!
