A Note from the Principal

 

Dear MRES Parents,

 

What an amazing school year it has been. Our students have made huge gains academically, socially, and behaviorally.  I could not be more proud of all of our accomplishments this year. We truly have an amazing school. It takes a team and I feel between the staff, students, and parents, we have a great team that works together to do what is best for our students. 

 

There are some exciting things happening at Monterey Road next year. First, all students in grades 3-5 will be receiving a chrome book. This will be a slow roll out in the beginning but in the end, our teachers will be enhancing our students' learning experience through the use of one to one technology. Stay tuned for information regarding this roll out. We will have a parent meeting to go over all the specifics. We will also be purchasing chrome books to be used with small groups in grades K-2 so that we can begin to prepare students for the one to one experience that will start in 3rd grade. 

 

We are pleased to continue down our GREEN journey next year with the Cuesta Community College Partnership. We will be continuing to implement the Next Generation Science Standards as well as our Garden and Recycling/Compost program. In addition, this summer, our staff will be participating in a three day on site retreat, where we will focus on our school goals, culture, technology and academics for the 2016-17 school year. Our district has also adopted a new Language Arts program that we are super excited about! 

 

Great things are in store for next year already! I am so blessed to continue to be the principal at this amazing school. Thank you for all your support over the last two years; it means the world to me. Please enjoy summer with your precious children. Don't forget to have them read, journal, and practice math facts during their time away from school! We look forward to seeing you all at the Back to School Meet and Greet on Tuesday, August 23rd, from 5:30-6:30. Go Mustangs!

 

 

Best Wishes,

Julie Davis

Principal

Monterey Road Elementary School is now a

"California Distinguished School"  

 

On May 1, 2014, Tom Torlakson (California State Superintendent of Education), announced that Monterey Road Elementary is now officially a California Distinguished School.

 

Of the 44 elementary schools in this county, only three were recognized as Distinguished.  There are 5,768 elementary schools in our state, serving over three million children, and only 434 were recognized with this award.

 

So now the rest of the state knows what we know:  Monterey Road Elementary School is pretty special.  That means that our staff is special, our kids are special, our facility is way beyond special, and our families are the best.

 

Congratulations to all who help make our school distinguished!

Volunteering at School:

Just a reminder, that one of the great ways to impact our school is to volunteer in your child’s classroom. The school district requires all volunteers to be TB tested and Megan’s Law cleared. If you have not done so, stop by the office today and start the process.

 

If you would like to volunteer as a chaperone on field trips, you must be fingerprinted.  For information regarding Live Scan please contact the school office at (805) 462-4270. All fingerprinting must be done through the County Office of Education.

Oral Health Assessment:

California Law now requires that your child have an oral health assessment (dental check-up) by May 31 of their first year in public school.  Assessments that have happened within the 12 months before your child enters school also meet this requirement.  You may pick up the Oral Health Assessment/Waiver Request form in our office. If you cannot take your child for this required assessment, please indicate the reason for this in Section 3 of the form. 
 
To protect the health of children, California law requires a health examination upon entry into 1st grade.  Examinations done within 18 months of entry into 1st
 grade also meet this requirement.  You may pick up the CHDP form in our office or get it from the above website.  
 
If you have any questions regarding the notices above, please feel free to contact Diane Keohen @ 462-4270, between 8:00 am – 2:30 pm.
