The PTA Council of Montclair’s April 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 April’s bulletin:

Designed for home lovers by home lovers, this year’s tour will also feature specialty boutiques at each of the homes in case you want to get some last minute Mother’s Day shopping done. This event has been established as a fundraiser for Glenfield middle school and takes place every three years.  Past Homes events have assisted Glenfield with much-needed technology upgrades. This year, the fundraiser will be used for enhancements to the library, the auditorium and the outdoor area the kids use at lunch. As always, every dollar raised benefits every kid.
