Monroeton offers an enriching educational experience for the children. We follow the Common Core that can be accessed at www.ncpublicschools.org. Classroom teachers collaborate weekly around student achievement and plan instruction that allows students to make connections as they apply the new knowledge.  Highly qualified teachers enhance the curriculum through experiences in art education, physical education and music education. Children have access and use technology daily both inside and outside of the classroom. Monroeton has an impressive inventory of enrichment software, two full computer labs, and web based programs that enhance the child’s learning experience.  We are proud of our character education program and have been recognized by the district for being an outstanding character education school. Students in all grades participate in special service projects through out the year such as helping elderly individuals, participating in environmental programs, sponsoring blood mobiles, collecting canned food items, and helping support community organizations.     

Monroeton also offers a variety of after school enrichment opportunities for students with our art club, ecology club, and drama club.  The staff at Monroeton Elementary is committed to do “whatever it takes” to educate, inspire and develop the uniqueness of each child.

We are a 21st Century School

As a 21st Century School, Monroeton Elementary is now equipped with an Activboard in each K-5 classroom. Activboards are interactive white boards that will help engage students even more to promote learning. Each K-5 classroom is also equipped with a Lumens, which allows a teacher to take an image and project it for a whole class to see.  Each room is also equipped with computers, a tv, and a telephone to allow for quick communication.


Besides all of these wonderful pieces of technology being in each classroom, Monroeton is also proud to showcase our Project Lab, which is a classroom that teachers may sign up for.  The Project Lab contains a classroom set of computers, an Activboard, a refrigerator, stove, oven, washer, and dryer. The Project Lab also has plenty of space for children to participate in hands-on learning activities as well.  Also available for checkout by teachers are a set of handheld devices that allow children to respond to questions asked by teachers.  The computer collects the data for the teacher and helps the students see how their classmates responded without putting a child on the spot.


A 21st Century School in North Carolina is "let by 21st Century Professionals."  Teachers at Monroeton are constantly learning about new technologies and using these technologies to help them "inform instruction and measure 21st Century knowledge, skill, performance, and dispositions."  Teachers are also teaching students to be globally competitive - each student is using technology to "access and demonstrate new knowledge and skills that will be needed as a life-long learner to be competitive in a constantly changing international environment."

I will spend a lot of time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles and interests.

I am eager to support the students, parents, school staff, and community of Monroeton Elementary .

Dear Monroeton Elementary Families,

Welcome to a new and exciting year as a Mustang! I am honored to serve as the assistant principal of Monroeton Elementary School.  

I received my undergraduate degree in education from Appalachian State University. I earned my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from North Carolina A&T State University and my School Administration degree from Appalachian State University.

I am a Rockingham County native, former student, and educator. I have served the Rockingham County community for 15 years. During this time, I was a teacher at Draper Elementary School and Williamsburg Elementary School.  Before coming to Monroeton, I served as the assistant principal at Holmes Middle School.

I look forward to building on the great work already established, while supporting the vision and mission for the Monroeton students, staff, and community.

Monroeton PTA

The Parent/Teacher Association is an excellent way for parents to become involved and support the activities of the school.  The PTA supports the children by becoming involved in many aspects of the school. Periodically, the PTA will sponsor fundraisers in an effort to provide extra instructional supplies for the classrooms, additional activities and programs for the children, rewards and incentives for a variety of activities, etc. 


We will hold regular PTA meetings and several other PTA sponsored events. All parent and/or interested individuals are extended an open invitation to attend any activity associated with the PTA. We hope you will see the PTA as an extension of the regular instructional program and an opportunity to become involved in your child's education.

At Monroeton Elementary, we take great pride in our PTA. This is one organization in which parents and teachers can work together in an effort to make our school better. Through this organization, we have many working committees. Whether or not you can help during the school day does not matter.  We will find a way to put your special interests or talents to work. If you are interested in becoming involved, contact the PTA, monroetonelementarypta@gmail.com.  It is never too late to become involved.
