PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
It was wonderful seeing so many families at our PTA Festival Around the World last week. Thank you to the host families who took the time to share their culture, music and food. Thank you to the families who brought in additional dishes to share. The food was amazing! Thank you to the volunteers who set up, cleaned up, and served food non-stop. And special thanks to Cheryl Aza, our PTA Inclusion and Diversity Chair for organizing the whole thing! The entire evening was so uplifting and community building.  

Speaking of Community Building, we have a PTA sponsored Family Pancake Breakfast this Wednesday morning at 7:30. Our very own Montair Dad’s Club will be organizing the event and whipping up some yummy pancakes. While there enjoying breakfast, you can preview the Art Auction Items created by each class on display that morning. These items will be available to purchase as part of our online auction.  I can’t wait to see them all! Then immediately following the breakfast, our PTA is hosting a Parent Information Session by Teen Esteem focused on Building a Relationship with Your Child. These sessions are always super thought provoking and offer ideas that are easily implementable. Please sign up if you plan on staying so we can get an approximate headcount.

Lastly, I want to invite all of our parents to attend the “Night at the Kentucky Derby” Auction event on February 23rd. This event for parents is a wonderful evening socializing with other parents and staff members while greatly supporting the many programs that make Montair so very special. If you have never attended before, this is the year to jump in and join us.   Tickets are available now . I look forward to seeing you there!

Here’s to another great week learning together!
