Celebrate Mother’s Day early with your student while enjoying a morning treat! And to any of those Dads who missed Donuts For Dads earlier this year, you’re welcome to join in! Suggested $1 donation per person.


Auction Update

Thank YOU to Robert & Ali Van Camp, and all the volunteers who helped make the auction a success! We gathered at the Multnomah Art Center for a little Portland Weird and to raise money for our sweet little school. Those in attendance enjoyed hoola-hoopers, contortionists, delicious food from Koi Fusion and many, many items up for auction!

To all our Montclair families that donated and bid, THANK YOU! for all the generous support for our school. Together we raised $26,000 to contribute to the 2015-2016 PTO budget. If you’d still like to make a contribution, the office will always take cash or check and deliver it to the Treasurer!
