Welcome to Monterey Peninsula USD

 
Back to School Message: August 2022
 
MPUSD Families:
 
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! This is an exciting year to welcome students, families and staff for the first time or returning to the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District. It goes without saying that the past two and a half years were not what any of us expected. But moving forward I am hopeful, energized, and eager to kick off what promises to be an outstanding year.
 
Our theme this year is ‘Braver. Bolder. Brighter.' and our MPUSD team is ready and prepared to engage students in exceptional teaching and learning. We know that many of our students and families continue to experience tremendous challenges as we climb out of the pandemic and our team is eager to help and support every student. Many teachers and staff members spent countless hours this summer in professional learning and development that will carry into the classroom and schools.
 
MPUSD prides itself on positive relationships, safety, belonging, and community for each and every student. This year, you can expect to see many district and school-wide events and activities to engage and inform families. We will proactively connect with each and every family, making the extra effort to understand what our students and families want and work as a team to encourage and enhance student learning and well-being.
 
My door and that of the Cabinet team is always open to questions and feedback. If we can be of assistance to your family during the school year, please contact my office at 831.645.1200 or email to [email protected]
 
Let’s make it a great year!
 
Respectfully, 
 
PK Diffenbaugh 
Superintendent

Mensaje de regreso a la escuela: agosto de 2022
 
Familias de MPUSD:
 
¡Bienvenidos al año escolar 2022-2023! Este es un año emocionante para dar la bienvenida a los estudiantes, las familias y el personal por primera vez o que regresan al Distrito Escolar Unificado de la Península de Monterey. No hace falta decir que los últimos dos años y medio no fueron lo que ninguno de nosotros esperábamos, pero de cara al futuro tengo esperanzas, energía y ganas de comenzar lo que promete ser un año excepcional.
 
Nuestro tema este año es 'Más valiente. Más audaz. Más brillante.' y nuestro equipo de MPUSD está listo y preparado para involucrar a los estudiantes en una enseñanza y un aprendizaje excepcionales. Sabemos que muchos de nuestros estudiantes y familias continúan experimentando enormes desafíos a medida que salimos de la pandemia y nuestro equipo está ansioso por ayudar y apoyar a cada estudiante. Muchos maestros y miembros del personal pasaron incontables horas este verano en aprendizaje y desarrollo profesional que se trasladará al salón de clases y las escuelas.
 
MPUSD se enorgullece de las relaciones positivas, la seguridad, la pertenencia y la comunidad para todos y cada uno de los estudiantes. Este año, puede esperar ver muchos eventos y actividades en todo el distrito y la escuela para involucrar e informar a las familias. Nos conectaremos de manera proactiva con todas y cada una de las familias, haciendo un esfuerzo adicional para comprender lo que nuestros estudiantes y familias quieren y trabajaremos en equipo para alentar y mejorar el aprendizaje y el bienestar de los estudiantes.
 
Mi puerta y la del equipo de Gabinete siempre está abierta a preguntas y comentarios. Si podemos ayudar a su familia durante el año escolar, comuníquese con mi oficina al 831.645.1200 o envíe un correo electrónico a [email protected]
 
¡Hagamos que sea un gran año!
 
Respetuosamente,
 
PK Diffenbaugh
Superintendente
