Dear El Monte Union Community,

With all of our students, teachers and staff back on our campuses for the fall semester, we are excited for the success and achievement still to come this school year. We encourage our students to take advantage of the many opportunities available to them, including academic and cocurricular activities, programs and more.

This month, each of our high schools held club rush events, spirit weeks, Back to School Nights and athletic competitions, where we saw increased student participation and school pride. Arroyo High School and Rosemead High School’s gardening club members also hosted volunteer events to help mulch flower beds and tend to the growing vegetables within each of their Farm Labs.

The District held its annual College Night which was highly attended by many students and families. El Monte Union honored our student representatives who attended the California American Legion Auxiliary Girls State for 2022. Each student was recognized for being part of this leadership program, which is designed to increase awareness and knowledge of governmental processes, while teaching students about the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

I am thrilled to announce that El Monte Union will host its annual College and Career Family Conference on Saturday, Oct. 22 at the Palms Resort in the City of Industry. The conference aims to provide students and families with skills and resources on how to succeed in high school, prepare for college and achieve their academic and personal goals.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to congratulate our students for the accomplishments they have made during the month of September, and our extraordinary teachers and staff for ensuring we continue to provide our students with the best guidance and support this fall semester.
