Dear El Monte Union Community, 

As we embark upon the new year, I am reminded of the sense of renewal and possibility that accompanies it. January marks the midyear point and the onset of the spring semester, making it an opportune time for reflection and renewed commitment to our academic pursuits.

Daily attendance continues to remain paramount to the academic success of our students as we enter the final half of the school year. Consistent attendance fosters a habit of discipline and responsibility that is integral to achieving one's educational goals. With the support of our El Monte Union families and parents, we encourage our students to make a commitment to attend classes regularly and engage fully in their learning experiences.

This period also marks an exciting moment for our seniors as college applications are submitted and decisions await. I implore our seniors to be patient and keep positive throughout this process as well as explore scholarship opportunities as they anticipate the news of their future educational plans. As a reminder, completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is an essential step in securing financial assistance for higher education. For information on application deadlines, please visit the Federal Student Aid website. 

As we navigate the remainder of the academic year, let us embrace the spirit of goal-setting and perseverance. Together, we will make the most of the opportunities that lie ahead, embodying the values of determination, resilience and academic excellence that define our District.

On behalf of our Board of Trustees, I wish you all a prosperous and fulfilling new year!
