This fun event gives you and your student an opportunity to meet their classmates in a fun, play setting.  The students play while the parents have an opportunity to meet each other as well as ask any questions they have as we prepare for school to start the following Monday. 

We look forward to meeting you at these events.  In the meantime, please be sure to register for the PTA under the “REGISTER” tab.  There you can sign up for the PTA which will put you on the distribution list to receive the weekly bulletin.  Should you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us at comm@montgomerypta.com.

Lunch Buddy Schedule 2017/2018

2017-08-31T09:38:09+00:00 August 31st, 2017|Resources, School Info|

The lunch buddies program consists of parent volunteers helping out in the cafeteria.  This program enables the teachers to have a well-deserved break during the lunch period. This is a great way to spend some time with your child during school hours. Lunch buddies help children open containers and packages as needed and wipe down tables. Volunteers are needed for 1 or 2 hour slots from 10:20 AM-11:20 AM and from 11:20 AM-12:20 PM.  Two volunteers per time slot is the goal.

See the schedule below for your responsible week(s).  You should be receiving (or may have already received) a link to a Sign Up Genius for your allotted week(s) from Brett Matthews (room parent coordinator).  Please distribute a link to the Sign Up Genius page provided to all of your class parents.  If you are unable to fill your scheduled week or have any questions, please contact Lisa Byrd (lfbyrd@mac.com) or Erin Stieglitz (erin.stieglitz@gmail.com)

Parking

2017-08-07T10:29:58+00:00 August 7th, 2017|Community, MES Info, School Info|

Please be courteous of our surrounding neighborhoods when parking to come to the school. Remember to park on one side of the streets and be aware of no parking signs close to stop signs. This will help keep everyone safe when walking through neighborhoods and allow emergency vehicles to come through if needed.  Brookhaven police will be policing the neighborhoods next week and will give a ticket on the spot.
