From the Principal's Desk

Greetings to the Monty Tech Community!
 
The month of October certainly seems like a blur as we already are moving into November.  Of course, this means that we are also closing out our First Term grades.  However, before we move forward, I want to take a moment to acknowledge a few recent events that occurred here at Monty Tech.
 
First, the faculty, staff and administration was thrilled to host 644 students from many of our feeder district middle schools for our annual Tour Day.  As always, the day allowed for these students to meet many of our teaching staff and move throughout the entire building to get a sense of the place many of them will call home from next fall until May, 2019.  Certainly a big thank you should go out to Kim Curry, our Director of Admissions, and all the guidance counselors and administrators from the participating middle schools for helping to coordinate this event.
 
Later that evening, the school was also pleased to hold its annual Career Awareness Night.  This night was open to families of currently enrolled students as an opportunity to get an update on student performance as well as to families of potential incoming 8th grade students.  There was a steady flow of visiting families and we certainly hope that all potential questions were answered by our outstanding vocational instructors.
 
Lastly, the school recently opened its first session of the annual VIP program as 274 of our potential 8th grade students came to the school to participate in five-weeks of after-school introductory sessions in one of sixteen participating shop programs including –
 
Carpentry                    Masonary              Engineering          Drafting
Business Tech             Culinary               Electrical              Graphics
Early Childcare            Welding                Plumbing              Health Occupations
Auto Body                    Culinary               Auto Tech             Cosmetology
 
Again, we thank all the participating vocational instructors and middle school staff members for helping to support our potential members of the Monty Tech Class of 2019.
 
Now, as mentioned above, our next important date is the close of First Term.  All grades close for the term on Friday, October 31st and report cards for the term will once again be distributed in school on Friday, November 7th.  A School Messenger call will go out to remind all families of the distribution.
 
Also, speaking of report cards, the school’s annual report card from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education will soon be sent home to all families.  By regulation this document must be mailed to all families, but if for some reason you did not receive a copy, you can contact the main office.  The most important aspect of this report is that, once again, Monty Tech achieved Level 1 accountability status, the highest possible, from the state.  I also want to note that included in this mailing is a message from Dr. Sheila Harrity, our new Superintendent, who will officially join us on November 3rd.  I am sure that I speak for the entire school community when I say “Welcome to Monty Tech, Dr. Harrity!!”
 
Lastly, as has been the tradition, Monty Tech will pause to acknowledge the accomplishments and sacrifices of our veterans with a celebratory ceremony on the day before Veterans’ Day.  This event will be hosted by 1stSgt. Paul Jornet and 1stSgt. Rob Simon, our remarkable Marine Corps JROTC instructors.  As our school takes a moment to reflect on our veterans, we would ask all of our community members to do the same.
 
As you can see, there are so many wonderful events happening at Monty Tech and it has been a busy fall season.  This will continue with our Parent-Teacher Conference Night later in November, and we will be sure to have further information on that essential event down the road.
 
Kindest regards,
 
Tom Browne
