Dear Montvue Scholars,
It has been with great honor and pleasure to have served as your principal at Montvue Elementary School. Together as one, we have been committed to show mutual respect and honor our wonderful diversity. We have become socially responsible citizens of this wonderful Montvue Community. At times, we have had our ups and downs, our disagreements, but we have eventually thrived because of the wonderful relationships and mutual respect we have for each other. I wish that you continue to see the light in this world, in yourself, and in others. I see that light in all of you. Continue to compliment others and always be proud of yourself. I am proud of you.
Keep up the great work and remember that you are stronger than you know. I believe in you. We have experienced a great loss this year, but I am confident that you will continue to ask for help. Continue filling your hearts with laughter and don’t forget to smile often because you are unique and amazing. Class of 2020 continue to dream, believe, wonder, inspire, love, and always listen. I appreciate all of you and wish you the best of luck as you continue to grow as the greatest scholar you can be. Don’t forget, a scholar is a child who is determined, sets goals, works hard, perseveres, and is thoughtful of others. Once again, it has been my honor and pleasure to have been your principal. We wish the best and good luck on all of your future endeavors.
