Dear Montera School Family,
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year, and it is with distinct honor and great pleasure to serve as the Principal of Montera School! Indeed, I am humbled and grateful for the continued opportunity to be part of the school family.
As we partner to help our children learn and grow, the Montera School Staff and I look forward to meeting our students, parents, and community members, and to continue positive, trusting, and effective partnerships. Student success and well-being are at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to providing a world-class education by engaging every student in a rigorous curriculum aligned to the common core state standards. We are also a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS) School. PBIS is an evidence-based and proactive approach to help increase academic success and positive behavior for all children. Montera students are Safe, Responsible, and Respectful! In addition, Montera Eagles believe in continuous improvement and the idea of getting a little bit better than before, by trying our very best, making good choices, and learning from mistakes.
It is very important to let all children know that there is a very strong partnership between school and home to ensure their success. Take time now to set routines for completing homework, reading every night, and getting to school every day, and on time.
The Montera School Main Office is open from 7:15 am - 5:00 pm Monday-Friday and students may enter campus starting at 7:05 for breakfast. Student hours for grades 1st-6th are 7:50 am until 2:30 pm, every day except Tuesdays. Dismissal every Tuesday for grades 1st-6th is 1:15 pm. TK/Kinder hours are everyday from 7:30-1:15 pm (1:00 pm Tuesdays). If your child is in the Pre-K, SDC Pre-K, or SDC-TK/Kinder, please refer to the office or teacher for your child's specific schedule (AM or PM Session). The Student Hires Program will resume the after-school program here to provide a safe and productive place for Montera Students.
On behalf of the Montera School Staff, thank you for the opportunity of partnering with you for the success of all students! Thank you for your continued involvement, support, and commitment to our children and to the entire Montera School family. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us here via phone, email, or in person.
