Anne E. Moncure Elementary - Principal

     Welcome to Anne E. Moncure’s Elementary School website. For those of you who are new to Moncure, I would like to take a moment to share a little about my background.  I have spent the first 21 years of my career with Stafford County Public Schools.  After relocating from Pittsburgh to Stafford County with my wife in 1997, we quickly became part of the community we now call home.  My wife is currently a first grade teacher with Stafford County and our three children have all attended Stafford County Schools (my oldest son is currently a junior at JMU, My daughter attends North Stafford High School, and my youngest son is a student at H.H. Poole Middle School.

     The first chapter of my career began as a fifth grade teacher at Hartwood Elementary School.  After 6 1/2 years, I was given the opportunity to serve as the assistant principal at Rocky Run Elementary for another 3 1/2 half great years.  As we prepare for the 2018-19 school year, I am beginning my twelfth year as Moncure’s principal.  I am a teacher first!  With that being said, as a school administrator, I strongly believe in the importance of supporting individual student strengths and addressing specific challenges.  Each day, I look forward to helping Moncure’s children reach their dreams.  I love my job and especially enjoy witnessing similar enthusiasm from my students and staff.  I'm looking forward to a great school year!

     This year, Moncure is expecting to house approximately 795 children (spanning Kindergarten through Fifth grade). To meet the needs of our diverse children, we have assembled a talented and diverse group of professionals to include: classroom teachers, specialists, paraprofessionals, office staff, cafeteria workers, and custodians to make each day count.  Our talented specialists work with our students weekly to provide Art, Library, Music, and Physical Education. In addition, Moncure houses an ESL teacher (English as a Second Language), a Reading Specialist, a Mathematics Specialists, a Technology Resource Teacher, and a Focus Resource Teacher.  Moncure’s motto, “Engage and Empower All Learners to Thrive,” reinforces our commitment to help children maximize their potential.  As a community, we regularly do our best to meet children on their individual levels.  We also welcome collaboration through time, energy, and commitment of our parents and community.

     Moncure Elementary offers several clubs and activities for our children.  A few examples include: Tutoring, Chorus, World Percussion Group, Art Club, Math Club, Running Club, SCA, WMES (our daily broadcast studio), our annual Spelling Bee, and Science Clubs, STEM "Design Challenge Days", and many more. As a school, we believe in the importance of keeping our school spirited and united.  “Ted E. Bear,” Moncure's Mascot Bear visits children throughout the year and participates during "Bear Season" each fall and spring.  As a school, we are always striving to improve.  If you have any ideas you would like to share, we welcome your input.  Please stop by, we'd love to hear from you.

     As a school and community, we are proud of our past accomplishments and greatly excited about our future.  Stafford County's commitment to Moncure is evident through our fabulous new building being constructed on a nearby site.  I invite you to take a glance at our future learning environment through this link. NEW SCHOOL  The future is very bright for Moncure Elementary School.
