Montara News


Dear Montara Families,

Welcome back to the 2016-2017 school year.  It is great to see so many familiar faces as well as new ones in our school community.


Last year we wrote and were awarded a technology grant.  You will notice that your children from TK through 6th grade will be using more technology on a daily basis in their classrooms.


SBAC test preliminary scores are in and Montara showed an increase of 11% in Language Arts and 5% in Math school-wide.  We also reclassified 26% of our EL students.  A big congratulation to our teachers, students and families for doing such an outstanding job!


We would like to welcome our new staff members assigned to Montara:  Assistant Principal, Andres Hernandez; APEIS, Araceli Silva; speech teacher, Ariel Malavé;  5th/6th teacher, Mia Mariano; kindergarten dual language teacher, Ivonne Gutierrez; and upper grade autistic class teacher, Hector Gonzalez.


We welcome you to please join us at “Back to School Night” on Wednesday, August 31st from 4:00 to 5:30 pm.  Let’s work together!


“We are college and career ready!”
