Hundreds of graduating seniors from El Monte Union’s comprehensive high schools celebrated their commitments to colleges and universities during College Signing Day ceremonies in May. Arroyo, El Monte, Mountain View, Rosemead and South El Monte high schools celebrated seniors pursuing their academic endeavors and showcased the college-going culture each campus has cultivated to inspire and prepare students for success.
El Monte-Rosemead Adult School receptionist Wendy MacLellan has been named El Monte Union's 2019 Classifed Employee of the Year. MacLellan has worked at the front desk of the adult school, greeting thousands of students throughout the year and helping them enroll in their classes.
Dozens of El Monte Union community members gathered on Valley Boulevard on May 15 to raise a rainbow flag that will fly at the District office throughout June in celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month. The event was held to celebrate the identities and contributions of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community and ensure students belonging to the community feel supported and included.
Rosemead High School senior Heather Huynh was recently recognized by the Board of Trustees for her service as the Student Board Member for the 2018-2019 school year.
