It is a great way for parents to learn more about our school, get connected with other parents, and be involved in their child’s educational process is to join a parent-teacher organization. Students do best when parents and teachers work together as partners. A PTO will allow our parents to have better understanding of what is taking place at school.
Monticello Elementary celebrated 100 Days of School, Monday.
The celebration “kicked off” with a 100 Days T-shirt parade through the halls of the school. Students then went back to their classrooms to participate in a variety of activities centered around the number 100. At lunch time, the 100th student that went through the line for each grade level was awarded a prize. Everyone joined in the celebration, including the cafeteria employees!
Tuesday, around 12 noon, a westbound GMC Envoy on Scott Street dropped off the edge of the pavement, and wasn;t able to re-rain control, before they collided with a street sign, a stop sign, and a fire hydrant.
Modern fire hydrants have a built in “break away” to prevent major leaks, when they are struck by vehicles.
A gas line barely escaped being damaged in the mishap.

Over the next two weeks local Cable, Internet and Telephone Operator, Cablevision, will be upgrading their High Speed Internet Service in the Monticello area. The primary purpose of this upgrade is to increase reliability and provide a more consistent user experience. As the popularity of internet gaming, social media, and online video streaming grow, so does the amount of internet usage for a customer.
Staying ahead of the curve is an imperative, one that Cablevision takes seriously and wants to address proactively. Cablevision owner, Bill Copeland, has announced that upgrades normally take up to 6 months to complete, but with recent growth of new subscribers to the Cablevision family and the need for faster speeds in the community, an aggressive schedule is in place and will be implemented within the next 2 weeks.
