2019 Moncure Fun Run

Since the School Board redistricted over 3/4 of Moncure students to different schools in the Fall, we will not incorporate fundraising into this year’s Fun Run. Instead, this one-day event on Friday, May 3rd, will focus on FUN, FITNESS and FRIENDSHIP!

And a big congratulations and thank you to our Fun Run T-shirt design winners, Mateo and Sophia Torres who nailed that message! It’s a perfect representation of everything this year’s Fun Run stands for!

Come help out at the water table station or make snow cones for the kids.  Sign-up to volunteer at

Please visit us at on Facebook or contact us at [email protected] if you need more information about any of our activities or upcoming events.



A HUGE thank you our generous donors, volunteers, and those who contributed a prize to make this event happen! We had some big winners thanks to the donations from U.S. Academy of Taekwondo (three months of lessons with a uniform as well as a birthday party), Cavalier Family Skating Center ($150 value skate party), and Fun Land ($100 in play cards)! We’re appreciative of all the families that came out to try their luck, have fun, and support Moncure!

Thank to these donors for their generous support:

“The Magic of Science” Assembly

We are so excited to announce our Magic of Science assembly coming up on Monday, April 8th! In ancient times magicians wielded tremendous power in society. Of course today we realize that the mysterious world of magic is truly the fascinating world of science. All magic is comprised of illusions and the majority of illusions are based on scientific principles. Our students will enjoy a journey of exploration into the science behind the magic!

Chemistry, magnetism, optical illusions, physics, and mathematics will all demonstrated in an energetic performance perfect for Moncure Bears. Everything performed has a scientific principle behind it – however, each of these topics will appear to our students as a challenging and astonishing magic trick, some of which our students will learn how to perform at home!


Author Kevin O’Mally Comes to Moncure!

We are so excited to have Kevin O’Malley visiting our students on Thursday, April 4th for three assemblies! He has a wild sense of humor that shines in his books and presentations. Originally trained as an illustrator, Kevin made his authorial debut in 1992 with Froggy Went A-Courting, based on a well-known folk ballad (a form that provides much of his inspiration). Kevin said that when he first heard the song, he didn’t know what the term “carding” meant. In his mind it conjured up a card game, so that’s the spin he put on the story. Froggy is a notorious gangster gambler, and Miss Mousie, his bride-to-be, an owner of a posh gambling nightclub. Needless to say, madcap action ensues.

Since then Kevin has continued to express himself in his books. His works have included tales of a rhinoceros losing his homework, a jewel theft, and a quest to ride a roller coaster. His latest books range from nonfiction to raucous humor, with everything in between. He has always loved drawing and shares his enthusiasm for the medium with his talks with kids in schools. Kevin lives in Baltimore, Maryland, with his artist wife and two sons.

Make sure to ask your student about his fun presentation!
