Principal's Message

Photo of monroe Elementary PrincipalWelcome to Monroe Elementary School. It is my privilege and honor to serve the approximately 275 preschool through fifth grade students and families of our great community.  This year marks my 11th year in education and my 2nd year serving as administrator of Monroe Elementary.


My mission as principal at ME is to ensure that we continue to put our students first and live out our building mission: to empower all students to reach their highest potential; socially, emotionally, and academically.  We pride ourselves upon creating an encouraging, safe, collaborative community of learners to ensure high expectations, strong relationships, and purposeful learning for every student, every day.  



Upon entering our building, it is evident that we strive to create a family atmosphere where all students feel welcome, safe, cared for, and important.  We also work relentlessly to pursue academic excellence for our students, empowering them to become self-directed learners, team players, complex thinkers, and problem solvers.   We realize that perhaps the most important contributing factor is the relationship between home and school. Positive parent engagement is key to student success. At Monroe Elementary, we value your engagement in the education process and look forward to working with you to provide an excellent experience for our students.


Warm regards,

Jayme Braida
