    Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year! We can't wait to work with you and your children! 

    Thank you so much for participating in our annual backpack/school supplies distribution. We gave over 200 backpacks away! Unfortunately, we ran out! I have just filled 75 Moncure drawstring bags with school supplies. I know it's not perfect, but it should provide the necessary supplies to get your child ready for school.  If you are in need of a drawstring bag, please feel free to pick it up on your assigned night during the materials distribution.  I will let the staff know where to find the bags and they will bring it directly to your car and place it in the trunk!

    We also are gearing up for Operation Warm: More than a Warm Coat.  I know it's September and it's super hot outside, but the winter months will be approaching quickly! If you are in need of a coat(s) for your children we will be sending out a mass email in the next few weeks asking for name, gender, size of the coat, etc.  The coats should be in around the end of October.  

    Student of the Month will look a bit different this year.  Instead, of having a breakfast we have bought Student of the Month signs to go in your yard! If your child is selected to be Student of the Month for September, I will be stoping by your house and placing a Student of the Month sign in your yard!  This will happen at the end of September.  I know it's not the same, but I'm hoping that it will put smiles on everyone's faces!

     

     

     

    .The counseling department has small groups available for our students here at Moncure!

    Participation of students in a small group led by the school counself is an effective way to help children be more successful in school.  These successes are not only academic, but social and emotional as well.  Establishing positive relationships with peers and adults, developing empathy for others, coping with stress and community needs are necessary skills for well-being at home, in school, and in the community.  If you are interested in your child being a part of a small group please feel free to call Teresa Conde (School Counselor) at 540-658-6300 or email condetm@staffordschools.net
