James Monroe School's Journey Continues! 
                                 School Sign

School Begins on Wednesday, September 3rd. It is a full day, running from 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM.   AM Kindergarten's schedule is 9:00 AM-11:30 AM, and the PM day goes from 1:00 PM-3:30 PM. Please make sure to have children at their assigned bus stops as indicated on their bus passes. It is very important that your child start taking the bus from the first day of school. It will take several days for drivers to familiarize themselves with our students, and the stops to which they are assigned. In addition, the parking lot at the school has many unmonitored entrances/exits, as well as an active daily Mass Schedule, making it dangerous to any pedestrian activity. The area directly around the school will be coned off for bus drop-off and student line-up. To ensure the safety of all students, please say your goodbyes at the bus stop, and plan on welcoming your child home by being at the designated stop at the end of the day.

Welcome to the Whole New World of James Monroe at Middlesex County College!

 Once in our new setting, everyone was ready to get back to work! With all the supplies donated and curriculum materials arriving from the publishers and other elementary schools in the district we were ready to get back to what we do best: learning and having fun!

 There is power in positive thinking! One of the first projects our students worked on was finding inspirational quotes to paint on the walls in the classrooms. We even included famous words by our namesake, President James Monroe!
