Shannon Elementary


Welcome to Shannon Elementary!

I am happy to see that you have an interest in the Monticello Community School District.  You will find that we offer a safe and caring learning environment for our students.

At Shannon Elementary School, we have a rich educational environment for our preschool through first grade students.

The Little Panthers Preschool is a two-section inclusive preschool where students learn side-by-side.  Registration occurs annually during the month of February.


Panther Academy is a before/after school program for school-aged children.  If you have any questions about Panther Academy or would like to register, please do not hesitate to call Panther Academy Director, Tammy Helgens at 465-5425 or 465-3000 extension 4212 or email:

Along with a strong academic focus in the core areas, Shannon School also has art, media, music, and physical education programs.  Additional instructional supports include school counseling, Title I reading services, special education, and enrichment support.

We also have an excellent playground in back of the school thanks to an active Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.
