Superintendent's Update

January 2019

Dear Monrovia Unified School District community,
The new year is off to a great start with academics, activities, and accomplishments in full swing across the District. Our annual financial audit concluded successfully, signifying our financial compliance with applicable laws, budgets, and other funding requirements. Students continue to grow with support of our diligent staff as they enjoy a wide array of innovative and enriching programs.
Students from China’s Jiangsu Province visited several campuses as part of Monrovia Unified’s sister school program through the Jiangsu Education Services for International Exchange (JESIE). Monrovia Unified hosted dozens of Chinese students for a week filled with school tours, integrated instruction, field trips, and assemblies.
Wild Rose School of Creative Arts took to the big stage at the Louise K. Taylor Performing Arts Center to perform “Aladdin” for the Monrovia community. Audiences were delighted with their performance, and we anticipate another stellar show this spring when Wild Rose brings the “Lion King” to life with the help of a prestigious Disney grant.
Congratulations to Monrovia High School's The Suitbots competitive robotics team on winning the Byson Cup Robotics Tournament and for being the top-ranked team in the Lucky Baldwin League. We are proud of our Wildcats for working hard and applying their skills in technology, creativity, collaboration, and communication!
Enrollment is now open Districtwide. We encourage you to contact your neighborhood school’s office for registration information.
I extend my gratitude for the hard work and dedication of our staff and students, and I look forward to our continued growth together.

Dr. Katherine Thorossian
