Weekly Monarch eBulletin

Hello Monarch Parents,

I realize
that social media can be overwhelming at times, but I encourage you to follow
our school on Twitter.  I have started to use it more frequently to post
quick photos and videos of our students busy at work at school.  This week
I posted photos from Project Lead the Way Science, 100th Day of School, and
Science Fair.  Once you have a Twitter Account, follow me @embrymres

auction will open for bidding at 9:00am on Monday, February 12th and close at

The 12th Annual Fun Run is right around the corner

We are VERY excited for this years fundraising event and have some great things
planned for our students. As always, your support with this event is critical
for the funding of Foundation sponsored initiatives such as technology, garden,
PE, STEM program, and much more! Look for pledge forms that will be sent home
with your child toward the end of next week.  The Fun Run is on March 14
but it will be here before you know it! Thanks in advance for your support and
looking forward to a great event!

Food Drive

Third Grade Brownie troop #2156 will be hosting a Food Drive next week February 12-16
at MRES!! Did you know that 1 in 6 people in San Diego county do not know where
their next meal will come from? We want to help the San Diego Food Bank restock
so as many people as possible can have food! Please have your children bring as
many pantry items as possible to fill our big red barrels that will be in the
front office lobby. The following items are NEEDED: canned meats/tuna, cereal,
rice, powdered milk, baby formula, peanut butter, canned fruits, vegetables &
beans, mac & cheese, spaghetti. Please NO glass jars or homemade items.
Thank you!

Yearbook Pictures

This year we are collecting most yearbook photos through classroom
shutterfly/bloom/teamsnap sites. Please contact your room parent on how to
upload pictures. If your class does not have a classroom site you can also
upload photos by visiting and searching for Monterey Ridge. Click
upload photos and use the password MRES to gain access. All photos must be
labeled by Event name (ex; Twin Day, pumpkin patch field trip) and child's
teacher's name. There is no guarantee that any of these pictures will make the
yearbook, however we will do our best to include as many photos as possible. We
are currently looking for photos in the following areas: Ride Across
California, Math Olympiad, Science Fair, and Safety Patrol. If you have any
questions please contact Theresa at
