    Dear Parents or Guardians,

    Welcome to Monte Bella Elementary, a California Distinguished Gold Ribbon School.  This year promises to be another great year here at Monte Bella Elementary School.  We will be working diligently in order to ensure your child’s academic success. We need to work together, as a team.

    A great start would be for you to make it a goal to send your child to school every day and on time. We will be rewarding scholars who attend school every day and on time (No Tardies & No Absences) with different prizes for perfect attendance individually and as a class. 

    Our dedicated teachers are committed to teaching your children and helping them reach proficiency in the challenging but attainable Common Core State Standards. But they can not do it alone. They need parent support. 

    Trust and Student Safety

    You will come to know this year that everything that we do here at Monte Bella Elementary will always first revolve around student safety. Thus, we need parents, guardians, and scholars to TRUST that everything we are implementing is for the safety of our scholars. We especially need parents'/guardians' support and cooperation to help carry this mission out. 

    Parent Involvement

    Parent involvement is a priority for Monte Bella.  We are reinstating the passport program to motivate parents to participate in school activities. For every meeting you attend, you will get a stamp on your passport. When completed, you will be entered into a raffle for a gift basket. 

    There are many meetings that we must hold to meet compliance with state and federal regulations. Having parents at the meetings is critical.  We ask that you make it a personal goal to at least pick one of the parent groups and attend those meetings at least once a month. It is in this way that we can make our school stronger every year. The following meetings in which you can participate are: School Site Council, English Language Advisory Council, Parent Teacher Organization, Parent Teacher Conferences, Parent Trainings, and Coffee with the Parents.
