From the Principal's Desk

Greetings to the Monty Tech Community!
 
Even though we have already experienced our first significant snow fall (in November no less!), I still find it hard to believe that we have already reached the month of December and will soon be off for the Christmas Holiday Break.  The year is most definitely flying by!
 
One of the nice aspects of this time of year at the school is that disruptions like MCAS testing or half-days go away for the month so we can simply focus on regular day-to-day instruction.  Therefore, there is not much to preview for this month.  Still, I want to make sure that everyone is aware of several important upcoming events.
 
  • First, we have moved up the preliminary events for this year’s SkillsUSA Shop Competitions as Juniors are already underway and Sophomores and Seniors will compete during the week of Dec. 8th.  We wish all competitors “Good Luck!”, and we luck forward to recognizing our winners at the SkillsUSA Awards Ceremony on December 19th at 1:00pm
 
  • Also, during this month, we will already arrive to the half-way point of the second quarter.  This means that we will be sending home Second Quarter Progress Reports with all students on Friday, Dec. 12th.  As always, we will send out a reminder to all parents via School Messenger.
 
  • Lastly, with the relatively calm schedule of December, we will take some time this month to review and update our school safety procedures.  This means that we will introduce Freshmen to our A.L.I.C.E Response Plan during an assembly on December 4th and then implement an emergency drill later in the month.  Please be assured that all parents will receive letters to further elaborate on the plans for the school-wide drill.
 
I should also remind parents that we are now sending out the text of our School Messenger calls via email.  During this winter, this will obviously include any messages we send out concerning delayed openings or snow cancellations. If you are note receiving these email messages, I would urge you to contact Donna Schaff (ext. 5235) to sign up for these important email messages.
 
Besides the events listed above, the only other focus of the month is for everyone to gear up for a joy-filled and restful vacation week.  The students’ last day before break will be a half day on December 23rd with a dismissal at 11:00am.  Community members should be aware that there will be electrical renovations in the Main Office during the vacation week.  This may cause some disruption to phone services and the main office itself.  Still the building will be open for half days on Christmas and New Year’s Eve and full days on Dec. 26th, Dec. 29th-30th and January 2nd.
 
I hope that all members of the Monty Tech family have a wonderful holiday season!!
