From the Principal


On behalf of the staff at Isaac Monfort Elementary school, I am happy to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year! Whether you are new to Isaac Monfort Elementary School, or a returning family, we look forward to you being a part of the Monfort family and hope you become involved in our school. I encourage every student and parent to embrace the opportunity to make this a great school year.

The 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. We will accomplish our mission by providing an environment of academic excellence, building the future leaders of tomorrow, and providing opportunities for students to participate in community service projects.

Each new school year brings opportunities for growth in all areas of development. Although children must be knowledgeable when they graduate, they must also be healthy, engaged, responsible, and global citizens of the 21st century. As each child discovers and develops his/her unique gifts and talents, they are given opportunities to lead. As leaders, they become active, engaged partners in their own education and their self-confidence, responsibility, and initiative grows. The children quickly understand the benefits of different gifts and talents; they learn to listen to new ideas, work together to achieve results, and motivate one another to be the best.
