As part of our Read Across America Celebration the first week in March, the Montclair School PTO sponsored an outstanding book fair and guest storyteller Ryan from Big Ryan’s Tall Tales. The PTO also purchased a new book for every student in the school. THANK YOU PTO for helping making our celebration memorable for our students.

My Friend Evan Dwyer
Evan Dwyer was one of the first friends I made at Montclair School. We were in first grade and in the same class and I will always remember how nice he was to me. He was a quiet boy but all the kids seemed to want to be his friend. I think that I am very lucky to have known Evan and to be able to say he was my friend. I will always remember Evan and so will many other people who knew him and knew how strong and special he was.
