Our students are gaining skills for lifelong learning. AVID is a central part of our school and every classroom.
AVID, or Advancement Via Individual Determination helps to ensure teachers implement student strategies for a college and career readiness culture.
Our mission in using AVID is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students to succeed in education and global society.
Welcome to Monument Elementary School!
Our school's success is built on our foundation of respect for every unique individual in our school family. We live each day promoting our three personal standards: Show respect, make good decisions and be a problem solver.
We think our school is a very special place as we have established a tradition of caring for and providing students with the kind of opportunities that will enhance each day and secure their future. Our mission and commitment to our students and the Monument community is evident in our school mission.
Monument Elementary School Mission:
We inspire and equip every student for success in their endeavors by partnering with students, families, schools and community.
Our school mascot, the eagle, is a beautiful and strong creature and a fine representative of our school. Our Monument Eagles exhibit strength and determination every day as they work to become the best they can be. One of our favorite mottos is “Eagles, ready...Take Flight”
We encourage our parents to be very involved in their student’s academic success at school and I personally invite you to come visit our school at any time. Please feel free to stop by and introduce yourself. I would be happy to meet with you, answer any questions, or be of assistance to you.
We are energized by what your students are for learning! With a sustained focus on reading and math instruction and a strong desire to continue our academic success, we know your student will make great strides in thier academic learning.
We are very excited at the opportunity of providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for all our Monument Elementary students. Thank you for your trust. It is a true privilege to have the opportunity to educate and live each day in the presence of your children. We care for and value our students and Monument Families.
Let’s make it a great school year and always keep smiling!
Mrs. Lisa P. Uvila, Principal
The Gang Resistance Education And Training (G.R.E.A.T.) Program is a national and international gang and violence prevention program that has been building trust between law enforcement and communities for almost 30 years. G.R.E.A.T. is intended as an education against delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership. It is designed for children in the years immediately before the prime ages for introduction into gangs and delinquent behavior. The G.R.E.A.T. Program is built around school-based, law enforcement officer-instructed classroom curricula. It provides different components for children and their families. These components include a 6-lesson elementary school curriculum.
More than 13,000 sworn officers from around the United States and various Central American countries have been trained and certified to teach G.R.E.A.T. G.R.E.A.T. has been delivered to more than 6 million children, allowing law enforcement to foster strong relationships with these students, as well as their schools and communities. These partnerships encourage positive collaboration among the community, parents, schools, and law enforcement.
