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.

From the Principal

I want to express my thanks to the children, teachers, support staff, parents, PTO, and community for another successful year at Montclair school.  I feel that this year the  students have made tremendous progress and grown so much academically and  socially.  It is satisfying to see the independence of our kindergarten students and first graders, the cooperation in our second and third grade students, the commitment to task of our fourth grade students, and the   leadership and excitement of our fifth grade students as they approach middle school.  I am very, very proud of the work our student completed and the many ways they have grown.

Please join us on Tuesday, June 3 for our   final PTO meeting of the year.  Mayor Koch will be attending the meeting!  Immediately following the meeting we will hold a Thank You Breakfast for parents.  We invite you to this breakfast as our way of saying thank you for volunteering and supporting our school. Whether you are able to volunteer during the school day, show your support through donations, or do work behind the scenes, we truly appreciate you.

In my final newsletter for the 2013-2014 school year I would to again like to express my gratitude for being allowed to work with your       children.  I feel privileged to have been  entrusted with leading a fine school community and am grateful to all who work tirelessly to provide our students with an  excellent education and wonderful learning opportunities.  I look forward to next school year and the many things we can and will continue to accomplish!

I wish you all a wonderful, relaxing summer filled with family, friends, and a ton of sunshine!
