January 2015 News from the PTO Board

Happy 2015!

Many of us make resolutions at the beginning of the year - and hope we can achieve our goals or find the results that we strive for.  The Montclair PTO has a few resolutions for 2015:

Help every family volunteer in some capacity at Montclair:
Imagine if all of our families were able to help the students and staff of Montclair in
one volunteering capacity or another. Montclair would thrive with a greater and more supportive, caring and compassionate community.

Achieve fundraising goals set by our Auction and Spring Fling chairs:
To be able to fund everything that’s in our budget NEXT school year, we need to meet our fundraising goals THIS year. Help us do that. Your kids will thank you. If you have any questions about where your money goes, come to a PTO meeting, or check out our budget on our webpage.

Teacher Appreciation Luncheons and Chairperson Needed:
Successfully provide our teachers and staff with the annual appreciation luncheons, a Montclair tradition where each grade level provides amazing lunches for our staff once a week for six weeks at the end of the school year. We are still looking for a chair person for this amazing opportunity. Could that be you? You don’t have to cook the meals, you get to head up the organization of making it happen with volunteers to help!

Find new volunteers for the 2015-2016 open PTO Board positions:
Do you want to volunteer for the Montclair PTO Board in 2015-16? Do you want to see changes or additions to Montclair that you feel have been missing or overlooked? We
have positions open and waiting for you! Come to the January 15 PTO meeting to learn more about the available opportunities.

See you on Thursday, January 15 at 7pm for our next PTO meeting.


Shamrock Run Team – Are you planning on running the Shamrock Run?
Montclair has a team set up that offers a discount and easy access to your bib and t-shirt.
Register at www.shamrockrunportland.com and use team # 8685 for your discount.
You don’t have to walk or run with the team, and you can invite non-Montclair friends
to be on our team!
