December 2015

Welcome December!

It's hard to believe that the Christmas holidays will be here in just two weeks! We have several things going on this month that you'll want to know. Please see the calendar below for important upcoming events!

Hour of Code

All Monticello students will be participating in the Hour of Code this Tuesday from 8 - 9 am. Check out this video to understand what coding is all about! Our students have been given the opportunity to code the last several weeks in their Keyboarding class and they LOVE it!
Hour of Code 2015 - WORLDWIDE

Annual Canned Food Drive

We are currently collecting canned food that will help to replenish the local food pantries. Please help us out by donating what you can. The class that brings the most canned food will win a pizza party!

Deadline is this Friday - December 11th!

Tacky Christmas Sweater Day

Friday, December 18th will be the day to wear your tacky Christmas attire! The tackier the better! Teachers will select one winner from their homeroom class and overall winners will be chosen in the Christmas sing-a-long by guest judges. Let's see how tacky we can get!

Socks for Seniors

We have a group of EAST students who are currently doing an EAST project where they collect socks and lotion for senior citizens. These will be taken to Belleview and given as Christmas presents to the residents. If you'd like to donate any socks or lotion, please send them to school by this Friday. Thanks for helping our students learn the value in giving to others!
