The city of Quincy has begun construction on the new roundabout project at the intersection of Highway 28 and 13th Ave. SW. As a result of this construction, traffic to Monument School has been impacted. We have arranged for an alternative route to school for our students that arrive by car. To avoid construction and the impact of traffic we are recommending some alternative routes for dropping off and picking up students.
* From Highway 28 down Seventh Avenue to the corner of N Street SW students can
begin walking on the walking trail.
* From Highway 28 to the end of 10th Ave., SW students can join the walking path.
Either one of these points could be used as a safe drop off or pick up point through the end of the school year. Please drive safely at 25 MPH and be aware of students on the roads. We thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.
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
