Principal's Message

Welcome to El Monte! We believe that each child is a unique individual capable of significant academic achievement and deserving of a safe, friendly school environment. We have worked hard to develop a rigorous academic program that is creative, fun and rewarding and is inclusive so that all students can be successful learners. In today's changing times, we want to reiterate that our school is about learning, not politics. We welcome ALL students. Please read our Superintendent's message on the Mount Diablo website regarding our school board's recently adopted resolution. You can reach her message by clicking here

I invite families to join us in partnership throughout the year by volunteering, joining our PTA and Una Junta parents group, and School Site Council as well as attending our many events throughout the year.  Go Bulldogs!

California Healthy Schools Survey

El Monte Elementary is looking for parents and community members to share their perceptions about the school. Your participation is voluntary but very important.The information will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning, and promote student achievement. Results will help inform Mt. Diablo's Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). This is an anonymous survey designed so that nobody can be identified by the data. The questions apply to this school only. The window will be open from February 6th-March 30th 2017.


Instructions for Accessing Survey:

If you have more than one child at El Monte, you only need to complete one survey for this school. Please fill out just one survey about the school using your oldest child as a reference. Access to the login page for the survey here.  Use the following school code and take the survey button. The code is case sensitive: JK26WZ. 

If you have questions regarding this important survey please contact Jennifer Sachs, Executive Director of Instructional Support at (925) 682-8000 x4016.

Thank you for taking this important community survey!

Camp Loma Mar -5th Grade Outdoor Education

Our 5th graders have the opportunity to attend Outdoor Education at Camp Loma Mar on an annual basis. We need your help to get there! Without hard fundraising work from our families and community, we would not be able to go. This is a life changing educational experience. If you would like to donate to this worthy cause, please send your check in to the office or follow the link to our Go Fund Me page: https://www.gofundme.com/2svpj2s 

We encourage families of non-5th graders to consider sponsoring a 5th grader and participating in fund raisers. We can all work together to make this amazing activity happen for our 5th graders. 

This year, our students will be attending camp 5 days from April 24-28th. Please click on the below link for more information about Exploring New Horizons, our 5th grade camp.

Volunteers and Visitors

 Visitor's must sign in at the office. A visitor’s pass will be issued. The volunteers working with students must be district fingerprinted and cleared to volunteer. Visitors need to return to the office to sign out.
In order to eliminate unnecessary classroom interruptions, we request that parents and other visitors leave messages, forgotten lunches, books, etc., in the office for their child. In this way, the teacher is given the article or message at his/her break time, rather than interrupting students precious learning time. We appreciate your cooperation.

Want to volunteer at El Monte? Start here.
