Welcome to La Monte Elementary School! I am so excited to be moving over full-time to the elementary side. My heart truly is in the La Monte community and school and I am so excited for the new school year to start to see old friends and to meet new ones. This school is full of caring and experienced staff whose highest priority is to always put children first. They truly are the BEST of the BEST. The mission of the La Monte School District is to educate and empower all students through quality educational programs that respect individual differences and diversity to achieve lifelong success. Our world is constantly changing, and because of these changes, we will continue to adapt and change our approach, strategies, and procedures to provide the most effective learning environment possible. We intend to challenge the students in conjunction with creating a fun learning environment that will provide them with the knowledge and preparation needed for their success. The staff will work diligently to achieve and exceed the goals established by the district, state, and federal government. In the event that problems or concerns arise, we are available to discuss and resolve any situation. Always feel free to call 660-347-5621 to discuss and/or arrange a conference as needed. WELCOME BACK La Monte Vikings - Let’s make this year the most amazing one yet!!
