Monterey Elementary will host good-bye open house on school's final day

Monterey Elementary School will hold an Open House entitled "Celebrate Monterey Elementary" on the students' last day,Thursday, June 2, from 5 to 7 p.m.
The event, says Monterey 6th grade teacher Todd Shaffer, "is just a time for the community to come and take a quick look back at MES. There will be a slideshow and refreshments during this time."
All are invited to the school, which will close its doors at the end of the school day June 2, as Monterey Elementary students prepare to move to Culver Elementary this fall. The change is the result of a controversial vote earlier this month to close to school in order to meet financial needs in the wake of massive budget cuts at the state level.
