PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
We are excited to welcome you back to Montair this year! Although we begin this year remotely, we are committed to nurturing the warmth and cohesion that typifies the Montair Elementary School community. I want to acknowledge the tension and angst many are feeling as we embark on our digital journey this year. Despite the technological bumps you may encounter, please know that every moment of your child's school day will be LOVINGLY prepared. We will work together to support you and your family in navigating Montair’s digital campus. Through our shared experience, we can build compassion, grace and patience for one another. We look forward to welcoming you to our 2020-2021 School Year! 

Thank you to all the families who have donated to the Montair Foundation! Because of your generosity, we are able to fund important programs like reading and math intervention, our librarian, classroom paraeducators and a portion of our administrative Teacher on Assignment’s salary. In the past, we were able to fund our gardening program and a technology coordinator. We hope that with your donations, we may be able to add support programs in the months to come.
