A Message from our Superintendent, Mr. Greg Helmer Greg Helmer - 2015-2016

Dear Community of Mona Shores Public Schools, 

I hope this communication finds you enjoying the remaining days of summer along the lakeshore!  Our community is privileged to have seven miles of wonderful natural resources to enjoy along the Lake Michigan shoreline.

It is great to work and live in our community.  Our supportive community not only values education by expecting a premier educational experience for our youth, but we are also a community that supports and respects our educators.  We are a community that has the best interest of our youth in mind.  Please consider visiting us here at Mona Shores throughout the school year, as we have a variety of opportunities to connect with our educators, students, and families.  Thank you for being a part of our community!

If you have driven by our buildings and sites this summer, it has been a very rewarding.  We are finishing up remaining projects from our Warm, Safe, and Dry bond.  Please consider viewing our progress by clicking this link.  Thank you for supporting Mona Shores Public Schools!  You have provided us with the ability to address our aging buildings throughout a 3 phase plan.

As we think ahead to the 2017 - 2018 school year,  Mona Shores Public Schools will remain dedicated to our mission statement:  Inspiring excellence, building character, and impacting the future through academics, arts, and athletics.  As a District, we will narrow our focus to the following three targets this year:

  1. Teaching & Learning - Literacy, writing proficiency
  2. Facilities & Finances - Bond proposal, May 8, 2018 - Phase 3 of 3 of the plan
  3. Relationships & Communication - Culture and Climate


Please review the following two resources on our website to become informed about our targeted areas of improvement:

  2. Master Facility Plans:  http://www.monashores.net/our-district/bond-fund-transparency/


Thank you for supporting our district.  We look forward to another great school year at Mona Shores Public Schools, The Port of Sailor Excellence!  Together, we will continue to be the premier PreK-12 educational destination in county, state, and nation!

Sailing Forward,


Greg Helmer
