This summer Munroe is offering four different academic programs for both Lower and Upper School students.
Starting June 4th, a K-3rd and 4th-8th Grades Head Start sessions will begin. Students will work in small groups and one-on-one with teachers to develop the skills needed for success. Both grade level programs will focus on Math and English skills.
We will also offer High School Geometry starting July 9th. This is a 3-week program that covers a year's worth of geometry.
Interested in one-on-one instruction for the ACT or SAT? We will offer ACT/SAT Tutoring as well this summer.

Dear Bobcat Families,
For the past few months the Munroe teachers and administrators have been busy planning for our next school year. I am so excited to announce a few of the upcoming improvements we have planned for next year. We still have a number of initiatives in the planning stages, but for now I want to focus on just a few of our fully developed plans for next year. A majority of these improvements come directly from the strategic plan that our entire community helped to create.
First, I am excited to announce the creation of our next Five-Year Strategic Plan. The Strategic Planning Committee is busy developing a comprehensive plan of action to implement the plan over the next five years, but many of the goals our community has set will be addressed right away. The plan will be shared with the entire community on the website, and I hope you will find it as exciting as I do.

Dear Students and Parents,
A few weeks ago, Mrs. McClure revealed to me that she is growing worried about her mother because Sylvia's daughter, who has been taking care of her, will no longer be able to care for her. After a discussion about the situation and the need to care for her family, Sylvia asked if it would be possible to leave Munroe before the end of the year.
We were able to find and hire a new history teacher to teach history, allowing Sylvia to proceed with her plan to take care of her mother. This unfortunately means that she will not be returning after Christmas Break. We will be making an announcement about the new teacher at a later date.
I want to thank Sylvia for her years of dedication and service to our students and school. She is a valuable member of our community and she will be missed.
Dr. Adam Gaffey
