From the Principal 

Dear Parents, 
Can you believe we are already into October?  Everybody here at Monfort has been so busy that the month of September just seemed to fly by. Students were actively engaged in many different learning experiences.  Opportunities that have included reviewing the knowledge they already possess, setting goals for success, and establishing expectations for the year.   Now they are focused on becoming life-long leaders and learners. I have enjoyed visiting classrooms and watching students work collaboratively and confidently. I am truly excited to begin a new era that focuses on every child’s individual growth and success, and I know that parents and teachers can have a profound positive effect on the lives of our children.  Together, great things can happen!

Mr. LaPorte

Mission: The Isaac Monfort community is dedicated to providing the essential skills necessary to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring children who will become contributing members, and future leaders, of a global society.

  • Communicators: They receive and express ideas and information confidently in more than one language, including the language of mathematical symbols.
  • Risk Takers: They approach unfamiliar situations without anxiety and have the confidence and independence of spirit to explore new roles, ideas and strategies. They are courageous and articulate in defending those things in which they believe.
  • Knowledgeable: They have spent time in school exploring themes which have global relevance and importance. In doing so, they have acquired a critical mass of significant knowledge.
  • Principled: They have a sound grasp of the principles of moral reasoning. They have integrity, honesty and a sense of fairness and justice.
  • Caring: They show sensitivity towards the needs and feelings of others. They have a sense of personal commitment to action and service.
