Welcome New Principal, Mrs. Erin Fairholm
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I am very excited to be principal here at Monte Gardens Elementary School! I have had the chance to meet a few families, students and teachers this summer and have felt extremely welcomed by the community.
A little bit about myself, I’ve worked in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District for 12 years as an elementary school teacher, teacher coach, and a vice principal. Most recently, I was vice principal at Hidden Valley Elementary and Shore Acres Elementary. I love the elementary years and feel that they are so vital in setting students up for success in their educational careers. I look forward to working with students, teachers and families to help Monte Gardens students grow and access a quality education to help prepare them for their future endeavors.
I truly look forward to meeting and working with the Monte Gardens community. Feel free to stop by the office and say hello anytime. The office will open August 1, 2016.
Please join us for Back to School Night on Tuesday, August 30 starting at 5:30pm. This is a parents only evening to meet your student(s) teacher, receive classroom expectations, and sign-up to volunteer for classroom specific roles.
