Principal’s Weekly Memo

Last Week of School June 4-8, 2018


Congratulations! You have accomplished so much during this school year.  Teachers have taught core academic subjects and important life skills.  Parents have offered support to teachers, PTA, and to the entire school. Students have done their personal best and have grown physically, emotionally, and academically.  The Classified Staff and Yard Supervisors have also been very supportive to all of the school’s needs.  Thank you all for a very successful and memorable 2017-2018. 


A Kindergarten student recently wrote a letter about a movie that he saw.  The movie was about a boy who practiced hitting a ball over and over again until he was able to hit a homerun by hitting the ball over the fence.  The Kindergarten student thought that this movie was a great example of never ever giving up.  Perhaps this is the best character trait we can have as kids.  A reminder kept in your notebook about always working toward a goal and practice, practice, practice in order to accomplish what is important to you is recommended by this wonderful Kindergarten student. 


Monday, June 4 One lunch schedule:  12:00-1:00 All teachers are provided lunch in the MPR and will be honored by our 5th grade students.  TK-K will still go through the lunch line at 11:30 , grades 1-2 will go through the lunch line at 11:50, and grades 3-4 will go through the lunch line at noon- Please see JP with any questions.


June 6 (Wednesday) is 5th grade Fun Day on the lower field (11:30-2:00).  Since set-up will be taking place in the morning, all students will have recess on the upper field for that day.  Please see JP with any questions. 


FYI…The City of Palos Verdes Estates has approved limited parking signs for the area by the back gate.  The school district will be extending the walking area for pick-up and drop-off on the school side of the street before the start of the new school year.  The new parking signs only apply when school is in session.  We are appreciative of the City’s support for keeping Montemalaga students safe.


Students are reminded to only write positive comments in school yearbooks.  Please do not sign on any of the pictures-

All textbooks must be returned to classes this week.

All library books must be returned before the end of the school year.

Be sure to check the lost and found for any missing items.  All items not claimed will be donated to local charities at the end of the school year. 


Grade 2 has lounge duty this week-thanks very much!
