Principal's Message

Date:  5/10/19

Dear Montevideo Families,

This past week was Teacher/Staff Appreciation week and I would like to sincerely thank all of you that went out of your way to make our amazing teachers and staff feel appreciated…myself included!  The treats, flowers, goodies and delicious luncheon today were all so special and warmed all of our hearts.  Thank you! 

Today ends another successful Montevideo Book Fair!  I just love the Book Fair and get such nostalgia when I see our Mustangs perusing the selections.  I know all of you will join me in thanking Mrs. Hock, our school librarian, and all of the spectacular volunteers that made this special week possible.  I can’t wait to start my summer reads in just a few short weeks!

Celebrate the Arts Day is almost here this coming Wednesday, May 15th, and it is going to be incredible!  Many parents and staff members have already been busy preparing for the day and we are very grateful for all the volunteers that have signed-up for the day-of festivities.  A HUGE thank you goes to our Celebrate the Arts Chairs, Rashmi Ramakrishnan and Ponni Venkatasen, who have been tirelessly working organizing and planning for this entire event.  There is still time to sign-up here.  Please see the Friday Flash for a day-of schedule.  We hope to see all of you, and our TK and Kinder friends, for lunch on the lawn at 12:35! 

Here are the Spirit Winners for the week:

TK/K     Mahoney

A friendly reminder that we will be closing for the summer on Monday, June 3rd.  The office will be open until Monday, June 3rd from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm and will not reopen until August.  Please plan accordingly for any school business you may have.  All staff (including myself) will not have access to campus this entire summer.  All teachers and staff have begun packing up their classrooms and spaces for new flooring coming this summer, as part of our modernization plan.  Please do not be alarmed should you start to see boxes in classrooms.  We appreciate your understanding and flexibility!

Ramadan Kareem to all of our families celebrating Ramadan this month!

I would like to wish a very Happy Mother’s Day to all of our Mustang moms, grandmothers and special women in our lives.  I hope you all have a wonderful day on Sunday and are able to spend some quality time with your loved ones.  We appreciate you and all you do for your children.
