Dear El Monte Union Community,

It was an absolute pleasure to welcome you all to the 2023-24 school year earlier this month as I made my way to campuses and heard about your summer adventures and excitement for the new year and witnessed the many smiles of students and staff. 
I would like to first congratulate our students who dedicated their summer to furthering their education and personal growth through our summer school programs. Your hard work and commitment have not gone unnoticed, and we commend your efforts.
In August, our high schools hosted Link Crew leadership days, freshmen orientations, spirit assemblies and athletic competitions, showcasing school pride and vibrant student engagement. Our teachers and staff also had the opportunity to learn and connect during Teacher Professional Development days and were welcomed back with a fun and exciting Opening of School Celebration. 
The District has also provided updates on the various modernization projects through its Facilities Project Brochure and will celebrate the start of construction for Mountain View High School’s Modernization Project and the completion of the school’s Zoo Crew Engineering Classroom Project at Back to School Night on Thursday, Sept. 7. We hope to see you all there!
As we conclude the first month of school, I wanted to highlight the significance of September as School Attendance Awareness Month. I want to emphasize the importance of punctuality and consistent attendance. I encourage all students to make a commitment to arrive to school on time and attend school every day. 
I look forward to the journey ahead this fall semester and know that 2023-24 will be a year filled with growth, knowledge and unforgettable experiences.
