Mrs. Matzke
Greetings Monroe Families! My name is Lynn Matzke, and I am excited to be your child's  Language Arts, Science, and Health teacher this year!  I taught 3rd grade for ten years, and this is my ninth year in 5th grade.

Your child will also have two other teachers this year; Mrs. Mehlhaff is the reading teacher and Mr. Miller is the Math/Social Studies teacher.  Fifth graders will rotate to all three teachers throughout the day. 

This year our reading theme is "Scare Up A Good Book!" As a fifth grader, your child will be asked to read 25 minutes each night and document that on a monthly reading calendar. At the end of each month, your child will return his/her calendar and our school will keep a running total of minutes read. Monroe's goal is to read 1,000,000 minutes or more by the end of the school year! 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child. The phone number for Monroe is 507.387.7889 and my email is ; I am available before school from 7:30-7:50 and after school from 2:30-3:20. I check my email periodically throughout the day, so that is always a convenient way to contact me. I will respond as soon as possible.

We will all work very hard this year, but will also enjoy many fun and exciting activities that only 5th graders get to participate in! This is your child's last year at Monroe! Let's make it one to remember!wink
