Welcome to Monterey Community School!

As a school, we empower students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. Our practice is based on principles of personal, interpersonal, and organizational effectiveness, and upon the powerful premise that every child has genius inside of them and the ability to be a leader. In partnership with the Leader in Me program, Monterey students learn the skills necessary to become self-reliant, take initiative, be considerate of others, find creative solutions, value differences, and live a balanced life. Our students succeed in life, school, and beyond.

Pinwheels for Peace

Monterey Community School students decorated their school grounds with paper pinwheels as part of their Pinwheels for Peace project. Each student decorated a pinwheel, each designed with their own interpretation of what peace means to them. From poetic messages to drawings of their family, everyone's definition of peace is personal and meaningful.

Monterey Spelling Bee

Come out and participate in the Monterey Community School Spelling Bee!

Step one is to attend an informational meeting in the Library with Ms. Jenson on January 23rd from 2:30-3:00pm.

The Spelling Bee will be in the Gym at 8:30am on January 30th and is open to any Monterey student in grades 4 - 8.

On February 7th, at 6pm at Skyview the top seven students from the Monterey Spelling Bee will participate in the Mapleton District Spelling Bee!

Let's show off those great spelling skills and have a great time!

Donuts with Directors

The School Accountability Committee is a very important component of our community school. It's an important way for the school to know about the opinions of the Monterey families and put their ideas to work for the benefit of our students.

Parents let us know that it was difficult to make time to come to the monthly meetings in the evening. Because of this, we have decided to revert back to an format that many of our families will remember: Donuts with Directors!

We look forward to the opportunity to speak with parents each month on the fourth Thursday of each month from 8 to 9am. Come in and have a donut, bagel, and coffee and hear how Monterey Community School has been helping students grow their academic successes. Parents may also share ideas and suggestions with Monterey's directors to help us provide a more ideal environment for all of our students.

In the next upcoming Donuts with Directors we will be discussing the recent changes in Mapleton's enforcement of the attendance policy. We will have members of the Mapleton Public Schools Board of Education available to interact with our parents and ask any questions they may have on any topic.

Please consider joining us for an hour of coffee, donuts or bagels and good conversation about the most important resource in our community: our students!

The next meeting will be on Thursday, January 25th from 8am to 9am. The scheduled meetings for the rest of this school year are listed below:

Thursday, February 22nd: 8-9am
Thursday, March 28th: 8-9am
Thursday, April 25th: 8-9am

We hope to see you there!
