The PTA Council of Montclair To Keep Families In The Know With Monthly Bulletin

Keeping track of all the going-ons of your child’s school is tough, especially when you are a working parent and not involved in the PTA. Montclair’s PTA Council has decided to send out a monthly bulletin to keep all families informed of the goings-on in each school and promote the idea of “One District, One Community.”

Below is February’s bulletin:

    How can I help?

  • Montclair Public School students need your votes. Please vote every 24 hrs and help win a patent for our invention, The Cleansing Conveyor.  With at least 3-4 votes per family and contacts made to friends, family and colleagues, our totals should grow exponentially.

To continue voting every 24 hours for the Montclair Public Schools, please vote for the Cleansing Conveyor.  Use our Montclair Public School website; click on “Good News” and then click the link that says “here”. Last, “vote now”. Glenfield’s robotics Innovation Award team, G-Force Innovation Award Team, has decided to enter a contest to get a patent for its invention, The Cleansing Conveyor.  The Cleansing Conveyor is a self-cleansing conveyor belt that can be used in stores, factories and lunch rooms. The team with the most online votes wins.  Please spread the news and vote once EVERY 24 hours (you must wait 24 hours to vote again).  Please use all phone and mass communications. Please ask your friends, family, co-workers, Facebook friends, twitter, parish and synagogue members, and anyone else to vote for us. This is an international contest, so include anyone who lives in other states or countries.  Please help increase our chances to win.
