Principal's Update 9/15/20

Hello Montemalaga Families, 


Thank you all for participating in last week’s PTA meeting and Principal Coffee Talk. These discussions provided us with some great feedback. I am currently working on various ways to keep our students connected while in distance learning, such as a new student social, lunchtime zoom activities, clubs, and trivia events. Please stay connected with us via email and check the MM website for information about these upcoming events. If you have any great ideas on programs, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or PTA. 


Our first School Site Council Meeting will take place on Tuesday, October 13th, at 3:00 pm. We will be discussing our School Plan for Student Achievement, and our English language learners program. More information to come in the upcoming weeks.

Eagles SOAR 


What does it mean to be a Montemalaga Eagle? At the end of this month, I would like to take the opportunity to hear from our exceptional students. I am looking to build a spirit video where students share what it means to SOAR (Spread kindness, Observe Safety, Act responsibly, and Respect yourself and others)! If you are interested in participating, please follow directions below, and your clip could be featured at our Spirit Assembly Next Friday! When you record your clip, please say your name, grade level, and a shout out to your teacher. Then state the question and provide your answer. Please only choose one of the items below to answer.
