Principal's Message

Coming Together Virtually

​Dear MPS Families,
 
We have completed our third week of online learning!  There has been a tremendous amount of learning for students, staff and parents and it has been amazing how each group has risen to the occasion.  As a school, we have connected with nearly 100% of our families.  Thank you to each of you for engaging with us, offering your appreciation, suggestions for improvement and thoughts in general regarding this process.  Your feedback is valued!
 
Many students are engaged in learning, connecting with teachers daily or weekly.  Families are sharing learning through Google Classroom, or via email to teachers.  Classroom Meets have been very joyful, offering face-to-face, real-time connections for students and teachers.  We all miss the daily interactions with your children and it is so nice to see and be able to speak with them!  Teachers have been able to identify increasingly more effective ways to engage in online learning and have been very thoughtful and creative in their efforts.  We hope their ongoing reflection and revising helps to make learning more approachable for everyone.
 
A reminder to families that all learning is presented at the beginning of the week, but left to families to determine when, if, and how much of the learning will fit into each family’s personal schedule.  We are here for you if you require assistance.  Please reach out to your child’s teacher or the school if you have questions or need support.
 
With the continued closure of school for students, traditional experiences for MPS students have been impacted.  Outdoor School for Grade 5 students, the annual government focused trip(s) for our Grade 6 students, along with our year-end farewell assembly to celebrate our Grade 6 students as they transition to Jr. High/Middle School all, understandably, are not able to happen.  We are grateful for the continued opportunities to connect with our students through Google Meet.
 
Here is an invitation for our MPS families to come together in song.  Monday, May 4 is Music Monday.  Every year, Monterey Park School participates with schools across the country singing and moving to a common song at a common time.  This year the song is, Hymn to Freedom, by Oscar Peterson.  We would love to continue this tradition with our MPS families.  Here is how you and your family can participate!
 
On Monday, May 4, grab a brightly covered scarf/ribbon, your cell phone/iPad and YOUR FAMILY!   At 11:00 AM, take your family outside into your front yard or on your driveway, click on this link, sing, and move to the song as we celebrate Music Monday as a community!  Take a photo/selfie of your family participating and email it to your child’s teacher.  We will be compiling all of the family photos submitted into a presentation with the Music Monday selection to create a music video of our own, Monterey Park Community celebrates Music Monday.  We will then post on our website for all to enjoy! We hope you will join us.
 
The school is open from 9:10 AM – 3:50 PM to receive phone calls and inquires.  A reminder that registration for Kindergarten continues online.  More information is located online at Registration.
 
Stay safe and stay well!  We miss you and continue to be here for you.  Please reach out to the school or your child’s teacher if we can help in any way.
 
Respectfully,
Lynette Zapp​
