Principal's Message

Dear Families,


As our school year comes to a close, I would like to express what a pleasure it has been to be your principal. El Monte is a wonderful place to learn and grow, full of caring staff and students who all work hard to reach their fullest potential. I'm sad to announce that this is my last year at El Monte as my family is relocating to the Sacramento area. Families are invited to attend a special meeting before Open House on Tuesday, May 22nd at 5:30 PM in the Multi Use Room. This meeting will be facilitated by our assistant superintendent, Jose Espinoza, to gain parent input regarding the hiring of the new principal. We welcome all to come and then to enjoy Open House after. El Monte is an amazing school and I will miss each and every student, parent, and staff member as my family prepares for a new adventure. 


Mrs. Molino

Camp Loma Mar -5th Grade Outdoor Education

Our 5th graders have the opportunity to attend Outdoor Education at Camp Loma Mar on an annual basis. This is a life changing educational experience and we need your help to get there! If you would like to donate to this worthy cause, please send your check in to the office. We keep track of each student account. If students are unable to raise the money your donation will be returned to you. 

We encourage families of non-5th graders to consider sponsoring a 5th grader and participating in fund raisers. We can all work together to make this amazing activity happen for our 5th graders. 


Here’s our GoFundMe link for 5th grade camp:  https://www.gofundme.com/elmo-5th-graders-to-science-camp  Spread it far & wide via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email, any way you communicate with people.


This year, our students will be attending camp 5 days from May 14-18. Please click on the below link for more information about Exploring New Horizons, our 5th grade camp.

Volunteers and Visitors

 Visitor's must sign in at the office. A visitor’s pass will be issued. The volunteers working with students must be district fingerprinted and cleared to volunteer. Visitors need to return to the office to sign out.
In order to eliminate unnecessary classroom interruptions, we request that parents and other visitors leave messages, forgotten lunches, books, etc., in the office for their child. In this way, the teacher is given the article or message at his/her break time, rather than interrupting students precious learning time. We appreciate your cooperation.

Want to volunteer at El Monte? Start here.
