Therapy Animals at Monticello

Jake and Daisy are the two service dogs at Monticello Montessori. They help many students in distress and are part of the school routine, interacting with all children. Monticello Montessori has two perfect-attendance special workers who have been helping several students. Meet Jake, the Australian Shepherd, and Daisy, the Bichon Frisé. They are the ones who can calm down any child in distress. Students with specific disorders such as autism spectrum, ADHD, or suffering a trauma at home (divorce, death in the family, foster placement, etc.) find comfort and love in those animals. We invite you to take a moment to read more about our therapy dogs and watch a special news report by East Idaho News.

Income Determination Form

We need your help. Please take a moment to fill out the income determination form. Charter LEAs, private schools, and other LEAs that do not operate free and reduced-price lunch programs under the National School Lunch Program must acquire information about the number of students in the school whose families meet the same low-income eligibility guidelines in another manner. You do not have to fill out the form, but if you do not, our school may not be eligible for amounts of federal funding calculated using the data. Thank you for your help!

    Bus Announcement

    Dear parents of bus riders, please remember you must submit changes of transportation in writing by text via the Remind.com App or by email to our secretary by 2:40 p.m. This gives us time to keep everyone safe by making sure that your child, his or her teacher, and the driver all know that the arrangements for your student have changed.

    National School Choice Week

    The goal of national school choice week is to let parents know that they do have a choice in their children's education. This week is for the parents. No one knows our children better than the parents do. The idea for this week is to take this time and do some research to find out if your child is getting the best education suited for their learning style. Erica Kemery, administrator of Montessori Charter School says, "Many parents assume that their local neighborhood schools best option for their child. Later they learn there are different reasons to make that decision to switch schools."
