From the Principal's Desk

Greetings to the Monty Tech Community!
 
While many teachers, students and families are packing their cars and getting ready for summer vacation, I write this message wondering where this year went. Even with the historic snowfalls of this winter adding on six additional school days, it still seems like it was just yesterday that I was beginning my first year at Monty Tech.  Let me assure everyone that this was truly a wonderful year, and it was purely due to the commitment of the school’s students, families, faculty and administrators to ongoing excellence and achievement.
 
Some select moments of note that occurred during the year include…
 
  • A record number of students (274) earned recognition at our Honor Roll Banquets in October.
  • The Machine Technology Program joined a partnership with the Massachusetts Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MassMEP) creating a new pathway to industry recognized credentials.
  • The school welcomed its new superintendent, Dr. Sheila Harrity, in November.
  • Monty Tech completed its first extended administration of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) exam.
  • The Monty Tech Drama Club earned its first Theater at the Mount High School Musical Theater Award for its playbill of Legally Blonde
  • Our Boys Soccer, Girls Soccer, Field Hockey, Boys Basketball, Boys Hockey and Softball teams all qualified for the state tournament.
  • Monty Tech held its first school-wide motivational speaker event as author Liz Murray spoke to the entire student body following a presentation of her biographical film, Homeless to Harvard.
  • Our Marine Corps Junior ROTC CyberPatriot Team earned the Championship at the National Competition in Maryland.
  • The state’s Coordinated Program Review Team visited and toured each of our vocational programs as part of its safety inspection, and Monty Tech earned full approval from the state.
  • Following the spring retest examinations, all Monty Tech Juniors and Seniors had earned a competency determination in each of the MCAS assessments – English Language Arts, Math and Science, Technology and Engineering.
  • Most importantly, on May 27th, 317 members of the Class of 2015 crossed the stage during Monty Tech’s 44th Annual Graduation Exercises. Congratulations to all!!
 
Obviously, there were numerous other individual, club, class and vocational program achievements, and each represents aspects of the greatness at Monty Tech.  As we look ahead, the school will be preparing for the potential addition of an EMT certification course being initiated in our Health Occupations program and the introduction of a School Bank as part of our teaching and learning for our Business Technology program. In addition, the school has been preparing for its decennial accreditation visitation from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges which will occur in April, 2016.
 
However, let’s not move ahead too quickly. We have summer ahead of us and, as usual, it will be busy around Monty Tech.  The following programs will be running this summer…
 
Summer School – July 7th-31st
Summer Academy – July 6th-30th
Summer Camp – July 6th-10th – Drama, Graphics and Cosmetology​
 July 13th-17th – Art, Culinary, and House Carpentry
  
In addition, all families should be aware that the Main Office summer hours (7:30am-3:00pm) will begin on June 22nd.
 
Finally, as we wrap up the year, I want to congratulate the entire school community for making 2014-2015 a wonderful school year at Monty Tech.  I encourage everyone to stay tuned to this webpage for important updates, and we will certainly begin to contact families via School Messenger as we near the opening day for 2015-2016, August 27th.
 
Until then – Have a terrific summer!!
 
Tom Browne
