MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Esteemed Monte Vista Families,
My name is Janet Covacevich and it is an honor to continue serving as the Principal of this wonderful school. I am excited for all the opportunities 2016-17 will bring.
As we enter this new year, with common core in full implementation, I want you to know that our staff is committed and ready to continue preparing and supporting every student for the new rigors through every content area. We have expanded our STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) elective opportunities to be available at every grade level. Students will have opportunities to learn and be exposed to rigorous technology and real world problems through our STEM elective offerings. We continue with our AVID expansion as the backbone of good teaching and learning. I am proud to announce that Monte Vista is the first school in this district to earn the AVID Schoolwide Site of Distinction. We continue offering AVID as an elective, but also creating the “AVID” experience for every student in preparation for college or career. We are in full support of the district’s mission, every child will be college and career ready. Our teachers continue to use and expand their expertise in research-based instructional strategies that benefit the learning of ALL students, while our counseling team is ready to provide our students support with the social, emotional, and academic domains to ensure the success of every student is well-founded. As a school community, we will all be working to positively impact every child’s experience as a member of the Bobcat family.
We continue to thank you for the opportunity to form an integral part of your child’s education. The middle years are crucial in predicting the success students will have in high school. I am confident that by bridging home and school as a team, our students will find the support systems they need in order to become successful. By working together in partnership, we can engage students, celebrate their successes, and help them grow their areas of need.
