Teeth, terrariums, Tuskeegee Airmen: Munroe abuzz with activity

From learning how to keep those pearly whites white to getting an up-close-and-personal look at a piece of World War II history, it’s been a busy couple of weeks for Robert F. Munroe students, from preschool all the way up to high school grades

This past week, the sixth grade class traveled to Tallahassee to view a traveling exhibit on the Tuskeegee Airmen and Red Tails – a legendary all-black fighter plane squadron who battled in the skies over World War II Europe and the Pacific. 

At RISE ABOVE: Red Tail Traveling Exhibit, Munroe sixth graders got to view and even touch an authentically restored WWII-era P51C Mustang – the fighter-plane-of-choice for the famed Red Tails. 

Gregg Family Dental staff stopped by Munroe’s 5K class this past week to discuss the importance of oral health. Students were all smiles during the fun, interactive presentation, and hygienists “Miss Brenda” and “Miss Niki” showed the class how to retain those beautiful smiles.

While 5K students were learning to keep teeth clean, Munroe second graders were getting delightfully dirty in the name of science.

Having recently wrapped up a unit on plant and animal habitats, the second grade class constructed their own terrarium – a living miniature habitat contained inside a glass fish tank. 

This past weekend, Munroe students from multiple grades showed off their poetry, music, writing and oratory skills at the Leon County Modern Language Expo. Munroe administrators said the students did a “great job” representing the school.
