Dear El Monte Union community,

I am so proud of the determination that I witness every day in our El Monte Union students as they reach toward their academic and athletic goals. Their achievements are truly outstanding and I know none of them would be possible without the hard work of our staff, faculty and administrations. Two of those great achievements this month were South El Monte High School’s Academic Decathlon students becoming the first group of Eagles headed to the State Championships and Fernando R. Ledesma High School being recognized as a 2023 Model Continuation High School. Our students also saw successes in athletics, with many of our winter sports teams qualifying and competing in CIF and state championships, and taking titles in the Mission Valley League championship. This month, we were also able to celebrate the traditions of Lunar New Year with a fun-filled, community drive-thru event at the District office. The celebrations continued as our EMUHSD campuses showcased their creativity and school pride by hosting spirit weeks filled with themed days, activities, competitions, decorations and more. Last but not least, El Monte Union’s Board of Trustees passed a resolution recognizing Feb. 6-10 as National School Counseling Week, a time that highlights the tremendous impact school counselors, coordinators and psychologists have in helping students achieve school success as well as to plan for college and career. As a District, we would like to thank you for your endless support and for joining us in celebrating the personal and academic successes of our students and school community.
