Dear Mustang Students and Families,
Thank you, students and familes, for a very smooth start to the 2017-2018 school year. The month of August is packed with many activities and traditions. Our students are doing a great job of transitioning to middle school, learning the Mustang Way, and settling down to accomplish great things this year. We take learning seriously here at Monte VIsta. As we visit classrooms, we can see that great lessons and projects are already underway and we are moving full steam ahead.
Speaking of steam...these next few weeks are triple digit days. Please make sure your student is drinking enough water to stay hydrated. There are plenty of water fountains on campus and students may also carry bottled water. Drink, drink, drink!
If you are dropping your child off in the front of the school, please make sure that you are pulling into the curb lane. If you are dropping off your student in the middle of the road, you are creating a dangerous situation for your child and others. Please have patience and pull up to the curb.
Parents, please consider joining our Parent Teacher Organization and our Parent Institute classes. The more involved you are in your child's education, the more success your child will have! Just because your student is no longer in elementary school, does not mean they don't need you anymore. In fact, they need you MORE THAN EVER! Our parent liaison is Mona Perez and she can be reached at 830-3340, Ex. 5266. Get involved!
