A Message from Principal La Rue

Dear Montair Families,

I would like to take the opportunity to personally thank you for being such wonderful students and fabulous parents at Montair Elementary.  I am very grateful to work and live in such a great community.  I am looking forward to attending the Montair Foundation Live Auction on Saturday, February 21, 2015 at Diablo Country Club.  I look forward to seeing you at this event!


State Testing and Vacation Plans

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) primary purpose is to assist teachers, administrators, and pupils and their parents by promoting high-quality teaching and learning through the use of a variety of assessment approaches and item types. At Montair, we are currently making preparations to take the Smarter Balanced Field Assessment this spring.  Only grades 3-5 will take this assessment.   Furthermore 5th grade students will take the California State Standards Science test this spring.  I will continue to communicate relevant information about testing to all families in the coming weeks.  Here are the district testing windows:


Smarter Balanced Assessments: Computer Adaptive Tests

(ELA, Math and Performance Tasks)

District Testing Window: Elementary and Middle Schools (March 10-May 22, 2015)


CST/CMA/CAPA: Paper-Pencil Tests (Science for Grades 5, 8 & 10)

District Testing Window: April 16-May 20, 2015


If all children are to succeed and progress as learners it is important to note that every minute of the school day counts during this time of the school year.  Please schedule vacations and appointments outside the school day. We are working hard everyday at Montair and taking children away, even with an independent study contract, is never the same. With the academic rigor and pace of learning going on, it is hard for students to make up the time they miss.  Thank you for understanding and working with us.


Words Matter Week Feb. 2-6


I am writing to tell you about Words Matter Week that will be observed throughout the district the week of February 2nd- 6th.   This program seeks to focus attention on the problem of name calling in schools and to provide students and educators with the inspiration to launch an ongoing dialogue about the impact of words so they can eliminate name calling in their communities.

At our school, we recognize the importance of building empathy, teaching respect, and increasing understanding about the impact that words have on students’ well-being. Words Matter Week is one way in which we teach our students these important life skills.

Our students will have the opportunity to participate in activities that will help them understand the impact of verbal bullying and teach them strategies for ending name calling. The program was coordinated by PTA’s Inclusion & Diversity committee and the activities by our Student Leadership class.

We hope that Words Matter Week will help all of us consider the weight of the words we use and make our school community a safer, healthier place for all.  We enthusiastically encourage your support of this week.


Bicycle Safety

In the light of the recent traffic accident involving a student cyclist on Green Valley Blvd.  I would like to remind students and parents of safety precautions while biking to and from school.

  *   Look and listen for traffic. Also, look for things that could make you fall, like potholes and storm grates. Never use a cell phone or wear headphones.

  *   Watch for vehicles going in and out of driveways.

  *   Stop before crossing the street, entering a road, or turning. Look left, right, left, and behind you for traffic, including pedestrians, bicycles, and cars. If you are allowed to ride in the street,

  *   Ride single file and in the same direction as cars.

  *   Ride to the right side of the road, but far enough from parked cars to avoid any car doors that suddenly open.


Upward and onward,


Mr. La Rue
