MONTEREY RIDGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Weekly Monarch eBulletin
Hello Monarch Parents,
It is that time of year again when we start our planning for the upcoming school year. Since our school continues to run at maximum capacity, it is imperative that you reply to our census that was sent out and also carefully read the information below regarding continuing student registration. Thank you in advance for your help with this huge job!

News & Updates:
Important!! MRES Census of all students returning next year
It’s that time of year to start working on our enrollment numbers for the 2017-2018 school year. This year our Census is electronic, via Google Docs.
The Census gives us an idea of the number of returning students as well as those who will be leaving MRES.
If you have not already done so, please complete form (one per student) ASAP.
If we do not hear back from you, we will assume your student will not be returning to Monterey Ridge Elementary.
