Welcome to Monument Elementary School!
Dear Parent and/or Guardian of Monument Elementary Students,
Welcome to back to another wonderful school year! I am Lisa Navarro-Uvila, the new principal at Monument Elementary. I look forward to meeting all of our MES families as we begin a year filled with new opportunities. We welcome the class of 2026 to Monument Elementary this year as fourth grade students! I am very excited at the opportunity of providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for all our Monument students. I hope you had a wonderful summer with your family. We hope to partner with you to support your child as a successful learner. An important part of our partnership is communication. Please contact us whenever you have a question or concern. We look forward to an exciting year of learning and growing. Thank you for sharing your child with us!
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. The following is our mission and commitment to our students and the Monument community:
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”
The foundation of our school’s success is 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. In addition, current research shows that a students’ academic success is directly related to student attendance and effort while at school. So, I challenge you to make sure that your children are here at school as much as possible. It takes an effort, but one that will show in your student’s successes in school.
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. If you are new to Monument Elementary this year, I look forward to meeting you! 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 about starting the new school year with a sustained focus on reading and math instruction and a strong desire to continue our academic success! 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.
Let’s make it a great school year and always keep smiling!
Mrs. Lisa P. Uvila, Principal
