A message from the principal...

Dear Maltby Families,

I am pleased to announce that Maltby Elementary is a recipient of the 2015 Washington State Achievement Award for our work in the area of mathematics! This is an extraordinary accomplishment, and iis a direct reflection of the hard work of our students, the dedication of our staff, and the support and guidance of you, our parents. This award is well deserved. In the past few years, our school, as well as the Monroe School District, has implemented several improvements that have impacted our students' success. These have included a rigorous math curriculum, implementation of periodic assessments, and continuous communication and review of data to ascertain next steps. Teachers use their data and work in their grade level Professional Learning Communities to design next steps as well as interventions to meet the needs of all our students.

The Washington Achievement Awards are sponsored by the Washington State Board of Education and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. They celebrate Washington's top performing schools and recognize achievement in many categories over three years. This highly selective award is based on our school's performance on the Achievement Index and uses criteria set by the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) flexibility waiver.

The Washington Achievement Award is given in six categories: overall excellence, high progress, English Language, math, extended graduation rate and English language acquisition. I hope you will visit the OSPI Washington Achievement awards site at: http://wwwk12.wa.us/EducationAwards/WashingtonAchievement/default.aspx to learn more about the awards and the criteria for selection. Salem Woods also received an award for high progress in English Language Arts.

This selection process for the Washington Achievement Award is very rigorous, and all of us take great pride in this accomplishment. Please join me in congratulating Maltby on this great achievement!

Have a great week! Enjoy our beautiful spring!

Important Notice About Internet Safety

The best way to protect children from online harm is to keep computers in a family area of the home. Visibility allows parents to look over the students' shoulders without being too oppressive. Young children should have a parental chaperone whenever they are on the Internet. Two sites that discuss these issues and offer advice can be found at www.safekids.com and www.safeteens.com.

Hyperlinks to staff web sites (located on the Staff page) are provided for student and parent convenience, and all staff web sites are hosted by external Internet service providers. Monroe Public Schools assumes no liability for content contained on external service provider sites. Filtering software from one of the providers listed below is recommended to prevent unauthorized access to sites beyond the District's control.
