Fun Run Update
The Fun Run in October was an amazing success! Thanks to YOU, our enthusiastic student runners, many parent volunteers, and our tireless event coordinators Kelly Layman, Mindy Gray, and Michelle Simpson, we earned more than ever before with a Fun Run - $19,440! So close to our $20,000 GOAL, and funds keep trickling in every day (if you haven’t turned yours in, you still can)! If you want to see what that money is used for throughout the year for our awesome students, check out our PTO budget here.

Scrip
What is Scrip and how can you participate? Scrip is regular pre-paid gift cards and paper gift certificates for a specific store, restaurant, or service that provides a discount to non-profits needing to raise funds. Scrip is a dollar for dollar exchange and costs supporters nothing, save the cost of the gift card. Our school receives the store discount as a profit. For instance, You can purchase $100 in Fred Meyer gift cards, and use the gift cards on regular purchases. Montclair receives $4 for your purchase. Each participating store sets the percentage earned. It’s an easy way for Montclair to earn money. Look for a Scrip form in your student’s backpack or print one from the Fundraising page.

The next PTO meeting is in the library on Thursday, November 19 at 7pm. Hope to see you there!

SAVE THE DATE! Our Winter Fundraiser & Scholastic Book Fair is on Friday, February 5 from 6:30-8pm.
