Monroe School staff knows that children learn in many ways.  School activities encourage fun while learning and promotes important social skills.  Some of the excitement Monroe has to offer includes:


-Band:  Beginning in 5th grade, students are given an opportunity to try out the various instruments and then choose if they’d like to join band.


-Basketball:  Girls in grades 3-4 can join the Monroe basketball team to learn the basics of playing the game during a 1 ½ month class held bi-weekly after school which concludes with a tournament against the other MPSD elementary teams.


-D.A.R.E.:  Students in 5th grade participate in the Drug Abuse Resistance Education Program which is taught by an officer from the Manitowoc Police Department.  The 10 week program teaches students how to resist pressures which may influence them to experiment with alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.  The program also assists students in problem solving, being good citizens, and making smart decisions.  At the conclusion of the program, students receive a certificate at a D.A.R.E. Graduation Ceremony. 


-Flag Football:  The MPSD Football Youth League is for MPSD students in grades 3-6 to teach the basics of football.  For more information, please contact Head Varsity Football Coach Rick Ducat at

-Monroe Noon Hour Sports Program:  This is offered to all 5th grade students interested.  This program takes place at lunch recess and offers students the chance to be part of a flag football team (fall), floor hockey team (winter), and kickball/soccer team (spring).  Students pick their own teams, games are scheduled, and a friendly playoff competition is planned to culminate the season. 

-Orchestra:  5th graders can choose to become instrumentalists by opting to join orchestra.

-Reading Lock-in:  This event is held every year in fall at the end of the school day.  Students gather as a large group to read their favorite books for a 1 hour period.


-Science/Technology Fair:  Our science fair is held in the gym and is a wonderful opportunity for students to display their science projects.  Families are invited to come and view the projects and demonstrations.


-Volleyball:  This is offered to 5th grade girls in the spring.  Practices are held after school for a 1 ½ month period, with the girls learning the fundamentals of the game along with showing good sportsmanship.  The culmination of the practices is a tournament held on a Saturday with the girls competing against all the other Manitowoc Public elementary students.
