Welcome Back Monument Families:

It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I welcome each of you back to Monument as we open for school on September 8, 2022.  It is my hope that each of you are equally excited to become part of our Monument family. 

Instruction begins for all intermediate students at 8:45-3:15. 

  • On the first week of school teachers will hold signage with their names listed so that your child will know where to line up.
    • All morning arrivals will take place on the large playground (corner of Calhoun and Pashley), with the exception of bus students, they will arrive in the rear of the school (Monroe side of the school). Parents are not allowed to park or pull in under the overpass of the rear of the school.
  • Face masks are now optional for Trenton Public Schools  
  • Power School portal may be used to access important school-based information, child(ren) academic grades, attendance, homeroom assignments and class schedules.
  • Stay updated and connected through: 
  • We will continue to use Google Classroom features for the foreseeable future. Parents are encouraged to check Google Classroom and Google drive routinely.
  • Back to School Night is scheduled on September 20, 2022. Time to be determined. 
  • All children should be in uniform daily.


Please have your child(ren) enjoy the rest of their summer vacation. We look forward to seeing them at the start of the school year.


Warmest Regards,


Najla Solomon, Ed. D. Principal
