Announcements

  • Superintendent's Update - December 2021; The holiday season is upon us, and it is a wonderful time for celebration and reflection. I want to take a moment to recognize some of our District’s outstanding successes, which include our continued academic excellence, the amazing adaptability of our students and staff, and the ongoing compassion for each other and connection with our community that I witness every day. It has been an exciting and productive month at El Monte Union. Earlier this month, Mountain View’s very own Zoo Crew: Engineers Gone Wild! was recognized for excellence with a Golden Bell Award; El Monte High School teacher Joe Whisler was honored with the Bobby Salcedo Esperanza Award; we enjoyed student performances from our incredible performing arts programs; and the District’s annual Family Posada brought the El Monte Union community together for holiday fun. Learn more about what our teachers, staff and students are up to in our December Superintendent's Update! Our e-newsletter archive, including additional languages, is available here.
