Parents, we realize the frustrations you have with understanding how to keep up with your child’s academic progress.  We know you would appreciate a little guidance. So, we are offering a parent session at Monticello Elementary on Thursday, November 19th, at 4:00PM.  Call 348-6691 to register today.

This hour-long session will walk parents through the process for getting signed up for Parent Portal, if they are not already signed up.  Then parents will be guided through Parent Portal and shown how to access things like grades, missing assignments, and other tools.

We invite all our Monticello Elementary Parents to join us for this skill building session.  Our goal is to provide you with tools to help monitor your child’s academic progress during this unprecedented time. Being informed is a powerful thing.  Join us!
