If you are in need of extra food on the weekends, there is a program through the Weld County Food bank called the backpack program. To sign up, call Jessica Gomez at the Welcome Center 348-6382. Once you are signed up, the food will be brought to our office for the student to pick up at the end of the day on Fridays.
We are only a few weeks into school but we have already crossed several topics off of our “to-do” list. We are nearly at 100% attendance of our parent-teacher conferences. Teachers are in the process now of making up missed conferences so that we have communicated with each and every parent this fall. The Scholastic Book Fair was successful and fun for everyone. Thank you to Nichole and her mighty team for all of their hard work with the Book Fair! It was great to see all of those books in our students’ hands.
The ABC fall fundraiser was a success! Thank you for all of your support! The Monfort School Association (MSA) board and Staci are processing the orders. Look forward to a grand total at our upcoming MSA meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 11th at 6:00.
Our “Box Top” competition for the fall is well underway. We have placed tubs outside of the office to collect Box Tops from students, parents, and staff. The competition will run through October 21st. The grade level, 5th and 6th grade are combined, with the most Box Tops will receive a popcorn party from 3:15-3:45 on the grass in front of the school on Oct. 28th, if Mother Nature plays fair!
The results are in from our DIBELS benchmark testing for the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year. This assessment measures how fluently our students read. We have several areas of celebration! First, second, and fifth grade have the highest percentage of students reading at or above grade level at the beginning of the year compared to students at Monfort in the last 3 years. Thank you for all of the hours you spend reading with your children at home! It does make a difference.
Last is a celebration of our volunteer coordinator, Nichole Tijerina. She was chosen as our September Volunteer of the Month for our school district. We would like to thank her and all of her team for the hard work, late hours, and attention to detail. You can see the entire district volunteer list and the write-up on our district and school Facebook page. Also, see the attached information from the day of celebration. Thanks Nichole!
Upcoming events: As you see to the right, we have several more activities coming up soon at Monfort. Please read through the events carefully and add them to your calendar. If I can help you with any other information, please let me know.
I am Monfort… We are Monfort!!
I can’t believe the first quarter is almost over. Our school focus for PBIS is teaching our students how to be on “TRACK” Trailblazers. This means your child has been learning what Trustworthy, Respectful, Achieving, Cooperative, and Kind look like in the classroom, hallway, cafeteria, and playground. In the first quarter we have focused on students being “Trustworthy” Trailblazers.
Part of our PBIS initiative is for all of our students to be on time, and present for learning each and every day. It is critical that if your child is ill that you call the school and let us know. We worry when our students aren’t here and we can’t get a hold of you. Please make it a habit to call the school when your child is not going to be at school.
Thanks for a great school year so far.
Jodee Mueller, Assistant Principal
