Dear Students, Families and Community Members,
As I begin my first school year as Principal of El Rito Elementary (ERE), I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our children. We will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations for all children and providing supportive systems to assure they are met. By addressing school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increased academic expectations for all students and engaging the community, it is our goal that all students will be prepared for college or career ready.
On behalf of the faculty and staff at ERE, it is my pleasure to welcome you and your child to a new school year. My past 12 years of educational experience has shown me that it takes a team to help all students reach their maximum potential. I will work collaboratively with the staff at ERE to provide an academic program where all students can be successful. We will make a strong consorted effort so that all students will achieve, become successful members of society and are able to compete in an increasingly complex world in which they will work and live. The caring and dedicated faculty and staff at ERE will continue to encourage all students to set high goals for themselves and to reach for their dreams. Our staff goals this year include developing higher levels of critical thinking and learning and higher levels of engagement and dedication to academics.
Working together, we can ensure that the students of ERE continue to achieve their highest potential in the classroom, at home and in society. Your involvement, partnership and support are greatly appreciated during the school year as we work to build and maintain our program goals.
I am confident that this will be an outstanding school year and look forward to working with the students, staff and community to continue the El Rito Elementary’s tradition of academic excellence!
Please feel free to contact me or any member of the El Rito Elementary Team.
Ms. Monique Garcia
