Principal’s Message
End of the 2019 School Year
 
Dear Parents and Students,
 
The 180 school days seem to pass so quickly!  The excitement observed on the very first day of school still fills our hallways each day at Montemalaga.  Thank you for being so involved in learning—both academically and socially.  We have heard so much about making good choices.  We have listened well to peers and teachers.  We have mastered perspective taking and can listen very well using skills that we have learned.  Our PTA and parent volunteers have contributed hundreds of hours to our great school.  We have enjoyed so many great PTA programs and school activities. Montemalaga’s sense of community is amazing.  We have supported the less fortunate over the holidays and we have established projects with the Palos Verdes Estates Police.  We all truly understand the meaning of being a person of strong character.
 
Thank you also to our excellent Montemalaga staff.  The office support, the classroom teachers, the support providers, etc. have worked tirelessly to make our school the very best. 
 
The teachers and I will spend some time this summer planning and getting prepared for the 2019-2020 school year.  Mrs. Gardner will be teaching Transitional Kindergarten in room K-2.  Mr. David Barro will be joining our teaching staff as a 5th grade teacher in room 16.  We wish them many successes in their new positions!
 
I will be the Principal at Ridgecrest for Summer School.   I will be spending many afternoons at Montemalaga should you want to come by and visit.  I hope that you and your families have a very enjoyable summer vacation relaxing, traveling, or doing whatever makes you happy! 
 
I can’t wait to hear about your summer adventures in late August. The first day of school is August 28, 2019.  This will be a minimum day schedule. 
 
Happy Summer!
 
Warm wishes,
 
Mrs. Jody Pastell, Principal
