Mrs. Margraves' Third Grade Class Website
I am Mrs. Margraves and I’m very excited to be your teacher this year! Two summers ago, I was married and gained two step children whom I adore! Last school year, my sweet boy, Noah, was born in April. I am a graduate of St. John the Baptist and St. Mary's Catholic Central here in Monroe. I have an Associates degree from Monroe County Community College and Bachelors degree in elementary education from Eastern Michigan University. This will be my sixth year teaching at MCES and I love every minute of it! I am looking forward to another memorable year with our amazing students!
Our Mission Statement: Monroe Catholic Elementary Schools is a Christ-centered, Catholic learning community committed to the academic excellence and spiritual development of every student.
Contact me at any time if you have questions or concerns!
Our Class Code is LHT77 if you would like to order books for your student online.

Spelling Test on Friday 4-20-18
If you ever need additional copies of spelling words or monthly book reports (our Menus), please email me for a copy to come home from school.
For your student's birthday, Principal Kubik has given every student the gift of a jeans day! I will hold on to your student's jeans pass until their special day is decided. Please contact me before you send your student in jeans to school. I will need to be sure that our schedule will allow jeans. For example, jeans will not be allowed on Mass days. If your student has a weekend birthday, they may wear jeans on the Friday before. If your student has a summer birthday, they may wear jeans in May. Thank you for your support!
Food Allergy Awareness Campaign
Thank you for supporting our food allergy awareness campaign. For a list of safe snacks, please check out this site:
Please Read this New Information: The health and safety of our Monroe Catholic School students is our top priority. Due to the impact sugary snacks have on the health and behavior of our students, along with the sensitivity/severity of several types of allergies on both our St. Michael and St. John Campuses, edible birthday treats cannot be passed out at school this year.
Students that would like to bring in birthday treats for their classmates may share something that is non-edible such as pencils, stickers, small toys, etc. Edible birthday treats have too much of an impact on our school day and will be sent home if they are sent to school. We want our children to feel special on their big day but believe we can achieve this through non-edible treats and other special attention in their classroom. Thank you for your cooperation, understanding and attention to this policy.
If your student is hosting a party (birthday or other), please know that the MCES policy on invitations states that they cannot be passed out at school unless each student in the class receives an invitation. A boy student can invite just all the boys. A girl student can invite just all the girls. However the party is arranged, all students should feel included. If you can only invite a few students, please find addresses for students in the MCES directory. Thank you for supporting the feelings of all of our students.
*** Special NOTE:
Please, do not send your students to school with a tablet of any kind,
even for after school care or bus rides.
We want to keep your students and their property safe. Thank you for your support!
