Ms. Monique Johnson – Principal

Dear Parents, Guardians, Students, and Friends:

Are you ready for the 2016-2017 school year! The teachers, faculty, and staff at Medgar Evers are prepared for a year filled with new adventures, hard work, and SUCCESS! Our focus is to assure that each student is prepared with the basic skills necessary for a productive future – higher-order thinking, working with partners or in groups, solving problems, speaking and writing effectively, and working with computers efficiently (keyboarding, the use of a variety of computer applications, and web searching).

We appreciate the support that you offer each and every day! Please continue your efforts in the following ways. Make sure your child(ren):

  • Attend school each day, arriving on time (7:30 a.m.) for breakfast and ready to learn;
  • Complete and return all homework assignments (specific homework guidelines are outlined in your Parent/Student Handbook provided during registration);
  • Read at home at least 30 minutes each night to improve fluency and literacy, and to develop a love for reading;
  • Talk to you each day about their school experience;
  • Ask for help in any area or subject when necessary; and
  • Know that YOU expect them to succeed in school and go on to college or a career.

We ask that you:

  • Attend Open House;
  • Attend Parent/Teacher conferences in the fall and spring;
  • Provide working home and emergency contact numbers, updating these numbers as they change; and
  • Be available to meet with your child(ren)’s teacher as necessary.

Let’s continue to work as a TEAM and as members of the Medgar Evers Family. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the Main Office at (708) 758-2520.

Thank you for your support. I look forward to working with you and your child(ren). And remember: EXCELLENCE is an ATTITUDE!



Monique C. Johnson
